Amazon Prime is a service available to Amazon customers who pay an annual fee.

Amazon first launched Prime Now in New York City in December 2014 and has since expanded it all over the US, London and China.

Amazon's Prime Now in Singapore will operate out of an urban fulfillment center, a facility of around 100,000 square feet, the company's largest Prime Now only fulfillment center in the world, Low said.

Amazon has launched its Prime Now service in Singapore - the first time it has gone head-to-head with Chinese rival Alibaba in the region.
