Jun 30, 2015 — Allan Pulga

Today, Amazon announced "Prime Now," one-hour delivery in London, U.K. exclusively for Amazon Prime members.

As indicated in the above screenshot (full promotional ad is viewable on YouTube), Prime members can pay ?6.99 for one-hour delivery, as long as they live in an appropriate postcode area.

"Prime Now offers up to 10,000 products from groceries to electronics, all of which are stockpiled in Amazon's local fulfilment centre in East London," Engadget's Matt Brian wrote today.

"To take advantage of 60-minute deliveries, you'll need to download the separate Prime Now app (available on both iOS and Android), add the products you simply can't wait to receive and then agree to pay the £6.99 shipment charge. If you can wait an extra hour, Amazon will ship your items for free when you choose a two-hour delivery slot between 8am and midnight during any day of the week."
