Amazon Canada has announced this morning Prime members in Vancouver and Toronto will now have same-day delivery available, for eligible items and orders of $25 or more. Previously launched two years ago, it cost $6.99 for same-day delivery, but that is now free.
The company said there are over 500,000 items in Vancouver and over one million in Toronto available for free same-day Prime shipping, seven days a week, ahead of the fall and holiday shopping season.
Prime orders placed in the morning will be delivered by 9PM the same day (or by ‘bedtime’ as Amazon says), while those placed later in the day will be delivered the next day by the same time, for free.
Alexandre Gagnon, Country Manager for Amazon.ca, said in a statement to iPhone in Canada, “Prime was developed to make shopping on Amazon fast and convenient, and Prime members in Canada can now enjoy fast, unlimited, free Prime delivery seven days a week,” adding “We keep making Prime better, and as our operational capabilities grow, we continue to increase product selection and enhance delivery options that customers in Canada enjoy.”
Eligible items will show an icon which indicates a Prime ‘FREE’ Same-Day icon, available to those in Vancouver and Toronto.
