Amazon adds a new city to the list of those covered by the online shopping service "Fresh": here's which one it is and how to get your shopping at home.

Doing your shopping online becomes easier and easier with Amazon Fresh, the online shopping service of the shopping giant. After having already embraced three of the main Italian cities, this time it's the turn of another major reality that, as of today, can order their favorite products - food and non-food - directly with a click.

Only a month ago, precisely last September, Amazon had decided to include among the areas covered by the service the city of how does it work? Just go to the website or to the "Fresh" section of the free app for Android and iOS, click on the products listed and put them in the shopping cart, just as happens with normal purchases through the platform.

Purely in this case, with Amazon Fresh you can choose from fruits and vegetables, frozen foods, meat and fish, cold cuts and pantry products; there are also many products for the hygiene of the house and the person, including the smallest. In addition to these, there are also drinks, including alcoholic beverages, and specialties from Emilia Romagna as well as those strictly organic.

Once the cart is filled, you can proceed with the purchase, choosing delivery times of two hours, even during the day, from 12 until 20; free delivery is reserved for all orders over 80 euros while, for the others, there is a minimum expenditure of 20 euros. Once the selection has been made, it will be possible to pay and wait to receive one's complete shopping in front of the house door or in a place selected by the user.

As anticipated, the service is dedicated to those who are in the city area of Bologna and surrounding areas, including Sasso Marconi, Castelfranco Emilia, Sala Bolognese and Castel dei Britti. As has happened in the past, the people of Bologna will also be able to use the code FRESH10 and receive a €10 discount on their first order placed from a smartphone, tablet or desktop browser.
