Online retail giant Amazon today launched Amazon Pharmacy, a new online store offering prescription delivery to customers.

The addition of medications to Amazon’s increasingly far-reaching product list started with PillPack, a service the company initiated in 2018 for customers with chronic conditions who require multiple daily medications. PillPack is now a part of Amazon Pharmacy.

Customers who are members of the loyalty club Prime will receive 2-day free shipping on their medications, as well as discounts on generic drugs up to 80% off and up to 40% off brand-name drugs.
