Amazon Is Shutting Down Its Prime Now App Globally

Amazon Is Shutting Down Its Prime Now App Globally

Amazon shut down its two-hour delivery platform, Prime Now, in India last year. Now, it is doing the same to the platform globally.

Amazon today announced that it is shutting down its Prime Now app and website globally. But the service isn’t going away. Instead, it is folding the service in its main platform. “To make this experience even more seamless for customers, we are moving the experience from a separate Prime Now app onto the Amazon app and website so customers can shop all Amazon has to offer from one convenient location,” Amazon wrote in a blog post.

The company also said that with the Prime Now experience being integrated on Amazon, it will retire the Prime Now app and website by the end of this year. “While the experience may vary slightly by country, customers in the US can shop at Amazon Fresh or Whole Foods Market by searching those stores on Amazon.com or the Amazon app, the company added.
