Amazon has expanded their Amazon Key service to in-car deliveries. Previously, Amazon Key allowed for in-home delivery and keyless guest access.
With the launch of Amazon Key In-Car, Prime Members with a compatible vehicle can have their packages delivered straight to the trunk of their cars.
Amazon Key In-Car delivery is available for Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles 2015 or newer with an active OnStar account. Or if you have a 2015 or newer Volvo vehicle with an active Volvo On Call account. Amazon says more vehicle will be added over time.
“Since launching Amazon Key last November, we’ve safely delivered everything from cameras to collectable coins inside the home. Customers have also told us they love features like keyless guest access and being able to monitor their front door from anywhere with the Amazon Key App,” said Peter Larsen, Vice President of Delivery Technology, Amazon. “In-car delivery gives customers that same peace of mind and allows them to take the Amazon experience with them. And, with no additional hardware or devices required, customers can start ordering in-car delivery today.”
To get started, customers will need to download the Amazon Key app which is available for Android and iOS, then they link their connected car service account. From then on, customers will be able to choose In-Car delivery when purchasing items from Amazon.com.
How it works, on the delivery day, the Amazon Key app asks the customer if they’ve parked within range of the delivery location and will get a notification of a 4-hour delivery window.
Amazon Key In-Car has multiple layers of verification to help ensure that in-car deliveries are safe and secure. When a delivery driver requests access, Amazon will verify that an authorized driver is at the correct location with the correct package via an encrypted authentication process.
After that’s done, the vehicle is unlocked and customers will get a notification via the Amazon Key app once the delivery is complete. In-car deliver is backed by Amazon’s Happiness Guarantee.
You can find out more about Amazon Key In-Car delivery and check if your vehicle is compatible on the Amazon Key site.
The Amazon Key In-Car delivery service is available today for Prime members in 37 cities in the US and more cities coming later.
