Amazon Announces Deliveries on The Same Day of Purchase
Company announced a new logistical effort to deliver products on the same day as purchases in the city of Sao Paulo.
The retailer Amazon announced that it will start to deliver expressly within the same day of purchase. The new option will be available for consumers in the central region of the city of São Paulo and for selected products with shipping starting at R $ 14.90 for Prime members and R $ 18.90 for other customers.
To check the products eligible for immediate delivery, consumers can select the “faster delivery: today” filter at the time of purchase, before finalizing the order. The service applies to orders placed until 12 noon on the same day.
“With the same day delivery, Amazon further accelerates the pace of launches and news that it has brought to Brazil. In Sao Paulo alone, the company has four Distribution Centers in Cajamar to support delivery logistics to consumers, ”Prime leader and Amazon Brazil delivery experience, Mariana Roth.
Before the new logistical effort, the company already offered the Prime club, which guarantees free deliveries and within two days to all of Brazil with no minimum purchase amount.
Fast deliveries became an essential tool for online retailers during the pandemic, a period in which more than 13 million Brazilians bought on the internet for the first time. As one of the main buying engines, consumers look at free shipping and the speed with which they receive their products at home. As a result, logistics has become quite a challenge for companies.
One of Amazon’s main competitors, Mercado Livre has announced in the last few months a billion dollar investment in logistics in Latin America. In 2020, the company’s planned investment in Brazil was 4 billion reais, a record amount compared to previous years. For 2021, the amount more than doubled, and the company projects investments of around 10 billion reais.
