Starting today in the US, Amazon says it removes the minimum purchase requirement to qualify free shipping for non-prime members. In general, you'll need to pay $ 25 to get a free standard shipping cost (usually 5-8 days) from an online retailer. Amazon described it as a limited-time limited-time product.
During the Shopping Shopping period last week, a promotion was launched with the aim of free shipping for two days to gain more market. Walmart offers two days of free shipping when ordering over $ 35. Amazon's promotions will further boost the pressure on current retailers and make it cheaper to buy online from companies that recently valued at $ 1 trillion. Amazon has already shipped $ 7.3 billion during last year's holiday season, and the cost is likely to be higher due to this promotion.
