Amazon tests two-hour delivery from Rite Aid
Amazon notes that prescriptions and pharmaceuticals from Rite Aid are not available through the delivery partnership. Amazon has its own prescription delivery service through Amazon Pharmacy, first launched in 2020. Earlier this year, the e-commerce retailer launched RxPass, a monthly add-on for Prime members that offers unlimited generic prescription delivery for a $5 monthly fee.
Amazon already offers two-hour delivery from other third-party retailers that include Bristol Farms, Bartell Drugs, Pet Food Express, Cardenas Markets and Save Mart in select cities, according to the release sent to Retail Leader. The retailer last year introduced Buy with Prime, which lets third-party retailers sell products directly to consumers using the Amazon Prime platform.
Amazon in January made the Buy with Prime platform widely available to U.S. merchants — the program was previously only available to invited merchants. Amazon earlier this year said Buy with Prime had increased shopper conversion for third-party merchants by an average of 25%.
