Amazon Debuts Free Shipping on Small Goods ➝

Spencer Soper, writing for Bloomberg:

The service covers items that weigh 8 ounces (230 grams) or less, which usually cost no more than $10. Delivery will take four to eight business days from a new shipping hub in Florence, Kentucky, specifically stocked for the program dubbed Fulfillment by Amazon Small and Light.

Previously, the only way for non-Prime customers to get free shipping on Amazon was to order $35 worth of items. But, this new offering has no minimums and will give customers free shipping on small items such as makeup, phone accessories, and more. At this point, I’m not sure why anyone would buy something online without at least checking Amazon first.
