Amazon offering deliveries to vehicles
Expanding on its Amazon Key, which enables access for in-home deliveries, Amazon has started offering deliveries to vehicles.
With Amazon Key-in-Car, Prime members with compatible vehicles can have packages delivered to the boots and back seats of their cars when parked at home or in public areas.
Customers need to have a compatible vehicle from Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC or Volvo, reports The Verge.
Free for Prime members, the service is so far available in 37 US cities following beta tests in California and Washington State for the past six months. Amazon is using multiple layers of verification to secure the in-car deliveries.
The Amazon Key app also shares notifications with users throughout the four-hour delivery-time window, such as when the delivery is on its way, when the package was delivered and when the car was relocked.
The service expands on the Amazon Key program, a lock-and-camera service that enables Prime members to receive packages directly inside their homes.
