Amazon introduces Sunday delivery

Business Technology | December 3, 2013

Don’t be surprised to see your postman show up with an Amazon package this Sunday…if you live in one of three key cities: New York, Los Angeles or London. The online retail giant recently announced plans to deliver packages on Sundays throughout the holiday season in these cities, as outlined by a story on the TechCrunch Web site.

Holiday business

Amazon has become one of the go-to shopping sites for consumers during the holiday season. So it’s little surprise that Amazon is ready to test Sunday deliveries. The company is working with the United States Postal Service to do this.

Not all qualify

This perk, though, is not offered to everyone. As TechCrunch reports, you have to be a member of Amazon’s Prime service to benefit from Sunday delivery. Amazon Prime is a subscription service — kind of like a preferred customer club – that will cost you $79 a year.

More cities

If you don’t live in New York, Los Angeles or London, don’t worry. This is merely a pilot program for Amazon. The business has plans to expand the Sunday-deliver program to other markets — including cities such as Dallas, Houston and New Orleans — in 2014.
