Customers who do not have a Prime membership in the US can, however, enjoy free delivery within the country for orders totalling US or more on eligible items.
Lazada, the region's largest e-commerce site, launched its own membership programme in April called Live Up in anticipation of Amazon's entry to Singapore.
While existing Amazon Prime Video subscribers in Singapore will not be forced into joining Prime, it will no longer be available for subscription as a standalone service.
Prime membership in the US costs US.99 a month or US a year, and provides access to a slew of services such as music streaming, free same-day delivery and even restaurant delivery in certain areas.
The Prime membership here will cost .99 per month.
But for a limited period, it will go for .99 a month, although Amazon did not specify for how long.
