Mubasher: Amazon.com launched an online pharmacy called Amazon Pharmacy, allowing customers in the US to order prescription medications for home delivery, Reuters reported on Tuesday
The web retailer has been building out its pharmacy for years following the acquisition of PillPack in 2018.
The new store will allow consumers to price-compare as they buy medications on the company’s website or app.
Amazon Pharmacy will compete with drug retailers such as Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc, CVS Health Corp, Walmart Inc, Rite Aid Corp, Kroger Co, and others.
Prime subscribers will have access to prescription savings benefit which offers a discount of up to 80% on generic drugs and up to 40% on brand medications, as well as two-day delivery.
