Amazon Prime customers in Manchester will be able to take advantage of the e-tailer’s one-hour delivery service, as it continues to expand across the UK.

Since its launch in London in June, customers in Birmingham, Newcastle – and now Manchester – have been able to choose one-hour delivery on selected products for the cost of £6.99. Prime customers can also choose a two-hour delivery window for free. 

The e-tail giant also revealed its most popular Prime Now purchases, which include the Fire TV Stick, bottled water, Pepsi Max and Terry’s Chocolate Orange. 

And since the launch of its chilled and frozen items, bestselling products on Prime Now include: fresh semi-skimmed milk and Ben & Jerry’s Karamel Sutra Core Ice Cream.

Amazon said customers are also using Prime Now to receive the latest video games as soon as possible, while parents are ordering essential baby products.

Christopher North, managing director of Amazon.co.uk, said: “It’s been only six months since we first launched Prime Now for customers in London and we’ve grown rapidly across London and to Birmingham and Newcastle. Just in time for Christmas we’ve also launched in Manchester and surrounding areas and we expect to see many last minute Christmas gifts ordered through Prime Now between now and the late hours of Christmas Eve.”

Amazon said its fastest Prime Now delivery took 15 minutes, and was the Call of Duty: Black Ops III PS4 game, ordered in Castle Vale, Birmingham.

Meanwhile, Amazon Prime customers in Newcastle use the service for food delivery, with the bestsellers being McCain Mexican Wedges, Birds Eye Hot and Spicy Chicken in Breadcrumbs and Mars Ice Cream Bars.

The most Prime Now orders come from East London in areas including Spitalfields, Shoreditch and Brick Lane, who like to order sparkling bottled water, meanwhile West Londoners seem to run out of milk often as they tend to order two litres of semi-skimmed milk.

And the bestselling Christmas products have been fairy lights, mince pies, Christmas jumpers, gift bags and Cadbury’s Christmas selection boxes.
