Last year, Amazon customers who use the service Amazon Prime (free shipping for two days), had to spend at least $25 in products so that the shipping was free. Now, however, Amazon abandoned the principle of minimum order to give “customers more convenient and quick opportunities” and offer free shipping.
This year, according to forecasts, retail sales will increase 4.8% compared to last year. So Amazon tries to stay ahead of their most serious competitors, such as Target, which already offer free delivery within two days for all orders from 1 November to 22 December.
According to Amazon, this step will affect hundreds of millions of units of goods. For comparison, Walmart, one of the toughest competitors Amazon, via the Internet sells about 75 million units of goods.
Amazon needs to accumulate sales after the profit forecast of the company for the remainder of the year fell below analysts ‘ estimates on wall street. The company expects sales in the fourth quarter will be $66,5–72,5 billion
Amazon has not announced the end date of the free shipping, but said that the service will be available for all Christmas orders. Usually, companies set a final date by the end of the season.
In addition to this service, Amazon customers who use the service Amazon Prime in the United States, will receive another holiday gift in the form of delivery of the goods on the same day during the holidays.
