We reported last week that it was possible for AmazonFresh to be launched in San Francisco on Tuesday, December 10th. Granted that the expected launch date didn’t hit the bullseye, but today Amazon finally expanded its grocery delivery service to San Francisco. This service was initially launched in Amazon’s home base Seattle, and six months after its initial launch, Los Angeles was added to the list. AmazonFresh is now live in three cities in the U.S., so its still quite far from becoming a mainstream service.
The service offers same-day delivery for items that are ordered by 10 a.m., any orders placed after that will be delivered in the following morning. Through AmazonFresh, customers can order fresh produce, dairy products, fish and even toys and electronics that are available in its warehouses. Initially customers will be given a 30-day free trial of the service, that doesn’t mean that they won’t be charged for groceries. After the trial is over, customers will be required to pay $299 annually to become a member of Prime Fresh, the membership also gets them Amazon Prime’s two-day free shipping benefits. Once again, paying the membership fees doesn’t mean that the price of the products you order will be waived, you will have to pay for what you purchase through the service, though it will be much easier to get groceries now if you live in San Francisco.
