Amazon's own COVID-19 tests are now available to the public for $39.99. According to the e-commerce giant's website, customers who purchase the real-time, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test are eligible for free one-day shipping through Prime.

The nasal swab test, which provides results within 24 hours after samples arrive at Amazon's labs for processing, received an emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration back in March. 

Though it does not detect antibodies or confirm immunity with respect to COVID-19, results from Amazon's tests are valid for travel in the U.S., except for Hawaii, and in select international locations, according to the company.  

Results will be made available through Amazon's diagnostics website originally designed for the company's employees. Customers can login using the same credentials from their regular accounts.
