Amazon today launched a new service called Amazon Flex which pays part-time drivers to deliver packages. The service, which takes its cue from Uber, will pay drivers between $18 to $25 an hour to work for two-, four-, or eight-hour shifts. Amazon Flex will first come to Seattle, but will expand to Manhattan, Baltimore, Miami, Dallas, Austin, Chicago, Indianapolis, Atlanta, and Portland soon. The service will only be used for Amazon Prime Now orders at first, but may expand to other Amazon deliveries.
