Amazon launches Pantry to deliver groceries in the UK, but only to Prime members

Amazon launches Pantry to deliver groceries in the UK, but only to Prime members

Amazon has launched a new delivery option for Prime subscribers in the UK today called Amazon Pantry.

The service, which follows a limited trial of AmazonFresh, has around 4,000 items available at launch from a range of categories, including: food and drink, household supplies, baby and child  care, pet, and health and beauty products.

Delivery options are slightly different to Amazon’s standard approach – you can fill up a box with items up to a total weight of 20KG. The first box costs £2.99 for delivery, but additional ones are 99p each.

While Amazon Now already let you order some of these items already, Pantry has a far larger selection of household goods and edibles. It’s also available nationwide, whereas Now is not.

That’s one more reason to leave the house gone.
