The Amazon Fresh service is now available in Spain for the delivery of groceries and other products. With a home delivery service to be selected by the customer in two time windows, this is initially available from today, but for the time being only in Madrid and the surrounding area.
Amazon Fresh delivers fresh products from the supermarket to your home in just two hours
As confirmed by Amazon, there will be a gradual expansion to other areas of the country. The aim is to expand coverage of the service by 2021, when it is operational for millions of Amazon Prime customers across Spain.
After purchasing from Amazon Fresh, as in any online shop, the delivery time is selected, which is the same day free of charge for orders over 50 euros, but only for Amazon Prime customers, the annual premium subscription service.
Amazon Fresh has two time slots per day in which you can choose when the order is most conveniently placed at home. The delivery takes place between 8 a.m. and 12 noon. Delivery takes place seven days a week. Orders can be placed through both the website and the Amazon app without having to access any other specific website, as was the case with Prime Now.
The initiative joins the business DIA supermarkets already have on Amazon and delivers a selection of more than 10,000 fresh supermarket products In addition to a further 7,000 products from the DIA brand, to which there are also other local food markets, such as the Mercado de La Paz in Madrid.
This service is intended to compete with those of other supermarkets that also have their own home delivery service, such as Aldi, Carrefour, El Corte Inglés or Mercadona. It also comes in a very propitious context where, related to the pandemic, social distancing and home ownership restrictions (voluntary or tax), the convenience of online shopping, electronic payment, home delivery and the proliferation of platform delivery companies like Glovo and Deliveroo.
Be with fresh products Delivery in the same The first day of one of the main obstacles that could be ascribed to home delivery of this type of product is demolished due to its proper preservation and, in the case of perishable products, its expiration date. In addition to fresh food, you can also buy beauty products, hygiene products or even toys at Amazon Fresh.
If you want to use this service, you have to register with Amazon Prime and have the opportunity to do so with one 30 days free trial This also includes this Amazon Fresh service.
