Amazon shuts down Prime Now, its online store with two-hour delivery

It’s official, the e-commerce giant has announced that it will close Prime Now on August 31 after almost seven years of activity. However, customers will still be able to purchase products with fast delivery from Amazon’s website or directly from the app.

Although the final date had not yet been confirmed, Jeff Bezos’ company had already announced months ago the closure of this platform in order to simplify the shopping experience and bring it together within the same website and app.

Starting August 31, the Prime Now shopping experience will be integrated within Amazon and its customers will still be able to place orders with two-hour delivery. The only difference is that, now, they will have to make their purchases directly through Amazon.
