Amazon just launched Prime Now in Manhattan, offering a one-hour delivery service on many household items.

If same-day delivery of your Amazon Prime items isn’t quick enough for you, you’re in luck. Now you can get more than 25,000 Prime items delivered to your door in an hour. The only catch right now is you have to live in Manhattan.

Amazon just launched Prime Now, a one-hour delivery service that’s currently limited to certain parts of Manhattan but will expand to more cities in 2015.

Prime Now is available exclusively to Amazon Prime customers through a smartphone app and includes lots of daily essentials, such as shampoo, paper towels and batteries, and even toys and books, according to a company news release.

The one-hour Prime Now delivery costs $7.99, but if you can wait a little longer, a two-hour delivery option is free. The service is available seven days a week, from 6 a.m. to midnight. According to The Wall Street Journal, bike messengers deliver the items.

“Several analysts who tried out the service on Thursday said they got their orders in less than an hour,” the WSJ said.

Dave Clark, Amazon’s senior vice president of worldwide operations, said in a statement:

There are times when you can’t make it to the store and other times when you simply don’t want to go. There are so many reasons to skip the trip, and now Prime members in Manhattan can get the items they need delivered in an hour or less.

Amazon and Google Inc. also offer same-day delivery in a number of U.S. cities.
