Amazon Prime Now makes its Web browser debut

Since launching in late 2014, the speedy-delivery service had only been available through a mobile app.

Shopping on a laptop is so 2016.

Amazon has quickly expanded Prime Now, a delivery service that offers paper towels, video games or even lunch in two hours or less. But ever since the service launched in late 2014, customers could only make orders on the Prime Now mobile app. Hoping to bring the service to even more people, Amazon on Monday said it has launched PrimeNow.com, which for the first time lets US customers make these speedy orders on a desktop or laptop.

"Customers told us that they would want the option to shop on a browser as well as mobile," Stephenie Landry, vice president of Prime Now, said in a statement.

Prime Now is available in more than 25 metro areas and offers tens of thousands of items, a fraction of the massive inventory on Amazon.com. The service is an exclusive perk for Amazon's Prime members, who pay $99 annually for a handful of benefits including unlimited, free two-day shipping.
