CHICAGO – Amazon has opened an online pharmacy.

The online retailer’s new outlet will allow both medication orders and prescription refills, allowing them to be delivered to a customer’s door in just a few days.

Most insurance will be accepted, Amazon says, but Prime members without insurance will also be able to buy generic drugs and brand name drugs from the retailer at a discount. The new offerings, which include creams, pills, and other medications like insulin, will be available to shoppers beginning today.

It’s part of a long term investment the online retailer first began setting up two years ago, when the company paid $750 million dollars for the online pharmacy PillPack.
