On January 25, 2018, Amazon announced that it would be the first grocery retailer in the world to offer grocery delivery.
As part of the initiative, Amazon Prime members in Australia will be able to get the same items at a lower price than Amazon.com and Whole Foods.
The company is launching an exclusive, all-new delivery service that will deliver its groceries to the homes of Prime members across Australia.
The Amazon Prime delivery service will be available in select areas of Australia from January 24, 2019.
The Amazon Prime Delivery service will enable Prime members to purchase products from select Amazon.ca stores, which will then be delivered to their doorsteps.
In addition to Prime members, the service will also allow shoppers in some states to receive the same products as Prime members and will be offered to Australian residents in the coming months.
Amazon says the service is available to Prime Members in most states and territories, but is limited to the following states and the territories: Western Australia, Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania, South Africa, Northern Territory, the ACT, the Federal Territory, and the Northern Territory Territories.
Amazon Prime membership currently costs $49.99 a year. AAP/ABC
