AmazonFresh, which started in June 2016 and has sold over 500 million items, is the most-popular grocery delivery service in the U.S. by revenue and the most popular online grocery delivery option by sales.
AmazonFresh’s growing popularity has resulted in many businesses buying products directly from AmazonFresh and, for those that don’t, Amazon offers discounts to consumers that go directly to the business.
Amazon offers a variety of delivery options including regular delivery, express, free shipping and more.
The Wall Street, citing research from research firm IHS Markit, found that AmazonFresh customers are the fastest-growing customer base for the grocer in the country, accounting for 27% of its customer base in the third quarter of 2019.
AmazonFresh also leads the grocery delivery market as a whole, according to the company, with over 3.6 million grocery delivery trips made last quarter.
That number includes regular delivery and its express delivery services.
The company’s other grocery delivery services include AmazonFresh Next, which delivers products to customers at a store, as well as AmazonFresh Prime, which offers discounts and free shipping to customers.
In 2018, AmazonFresh also became the first grocery delivery company to offer free delivery to customers that use its Prime Now program.
Amazon Fresh is growing quickly.
In the third-quarter of 2019, Amazon Fresh shipped over 3 million items.
In total, Amazon delivered over 1.5 billion items in that period.
