San Francisco: Amazon has introduced new pharmacy offerings to help customers in the US conveniently purchase their prescription medications, giving drug retailers such as Walmart and Walgreens new competition.
The e-commerce giant said that Amazon Pharmacy, a new store on Amazon, allows customers to complete an entire pharmacy transaction on their desktop or mobile device through the Amazon App.
Using a secure pharmacy profile, customers can add their insurance information, manage prescriptions, and choose payment options before checking out.

Amazon said that Prime members can access savings on medications at Amazon Pharmacy when paying without insurance, as well as at over 50,000 other participating pharmacies nationwide.
