Tech Crunch reported earlier this week that the online shopping giant will launch its services in the country.

It will be Amazon's first foray into the Southeast Asian market, and takes on local delivery services by the likes of FairPrice Online and RedMart in Singapore.

The Fortune 500 company launched its Prime Now service in the country last night, making its app available via iTunes and Google Playstore

Prime Now will allow Singapore users to place orders for fast delivery on a variety of items, including beer, beverages, milk, eggs, fresh produce, dried goods, consumer electronics, toys, and baby products.

There are currently two delivery options for the service

The first is for orders less than S$40 (RM126): It will cost S$5.99 (RM18) to deliver the orders within two hours, or S$9.99 (RM31) for one-hour delivery. Two-hour deliveries for orders more than S$40 (RM126) will be free.

Delivery times in Singapore will be from 10am to 10pm, seven days a week. Do note that the service will only be able to deliver in Singapore only.

Though Prime Now is a service that is available only to Prime members, the company is making it available for non-members for a limited period of time
