Amazon Brings Prime Now Service To Handmade Business

Amazon is teaming its Prime Now one- and two-hour delivery service with Amazon Handmade, the company’s handcrafted merchandise business, to offer consumers unique products from local artisans available for quick turnaround for the holidays.

With the delivery services, Amazon Handmade is extending product availability through Christmas Eve on Prime Now. Prime members in Austin, TX, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Portland, OR, Raleigh, NC, San Diego, Seattle and San Francisco can take advantage of the quick delivery service, as can residents of Brooklyn and Manhattan.

The new Handmade holiday selection includes pottery, candles, necklaces, skin care and totes from local artisans. Handmade categories available on Prime Now include home décor, kitchen and dining, artwork and party supplies, and jewelry.

“Amazon is thrilled to continue expanding on our commitment to small businesses and artisans who can leverage Amazon’s last-mile delivery technology to get their handcrafted items to Prime members in an hour or less,” said Stephenie Landry, vp/Prime Now. “This holiday season, customers can shop an even greater selection of handcrafted, giftable items and have the products delivered through Christmas Eve.”
