People ordering through Amazon will now be able to receive deliveries on a Sunday.
Amazon Prime members, who receive unlimited One-Day Delivery on millions of items, can now receive their packages on a Sunday at no additional charge. The announcement comes after the service was trialled in London for four weeks in the run up to Christmas.
The offering will be provided via the Amazon Logistics service which operates a number of delivery stations that act as hubs for deliveries in their local area. Amazon Logistics works with regional delivery partners to deliver items directly to customers.
The service will be available in London, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Nottingham, Manchester and Leeds. Customers that select the One-Day Delivery option in these areas can also benefit from Sunday deliveries.
Jamie Stephenson, UK Director for Amazon Logistics, said: “Delivery on a Sunday means every day is now an Amazon delivery day and that Prime members can enjoy even more convenience when shopping on Amazon. At Amazon, we’re continually innovating on behalf of our customers. We know customers really appreciated the immediacy of Sunday deliveries during the Christmas period and we were able to deliver thousands more parcels in this way in those four weeks. We’re delighted to now offer this service to customers in London, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Nottingham, Manchester and Leeds.”
To participate, Amazon customers in these selected areas can simply add any of the millions of eligible items to their basket and will see the Sunday delivery promise at the checkout when it is available in their region.
