Amazon today introduced Prime Photos for customers in Canada, providing free unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive.
Tens of millions of members around the world already enjoy Prime. And this past holiday season, more than 10 million new members worldwide tried Prime for the first time.
In Canada, the number of orders shipped via Prime nearly tripled last year. Since the program was introduced in Canada in 2013, Amazon.ca customers ordered millions of items with Prime. In fact, customers ordered enough items via Prime that if each were packaged separately, they would cover nearly 1,000 hockey rinks.
Starting today, members can securely store their existing photo collections, automatically upload new photos taken and access them anytime, anywhere, at no cost. Members can start using the Prime Photos benefit by visiting www.amazon.ca/primephotos.
In Canada, membership includes unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping on millions of items, discounted One-Day Shipping for as low as $3.99/item and Same-Day Delivery in Toronto and Vancouver for a flat fee of $6.99 per-order.
“With a brand new year ahead of us, it’s the perfect time to organize all of your photo memories – from photos of last year’s holiday parties, to recent and past family gatherings, birthdays, graduations and more,” said Alexandre Gagnon, country manager for Amazon.ca.
“With free unlimited photo storage, we’re giving Prime members in Canada one more reason to use Prime every day. Prime has helped members save time and money, and now with Prime Photos they can save special memories too.”
