Amazon Australia has lowered its standard free domestic shipping threshold from $49 to $39.
From 31 July, eligible orders over $39 are delivered free in three to five business days for Australian customers in metro areas, while those in regional and remote areas will recieve their parcel in five to eight business days.
As is standard protocol for eCommerce businesses, Amazon Australia is still offering fast-tracked shipping options for additional fees.
The new Australian threshold brings the Australian site closer to the thresholds for free standard shipping from Amazon in the US and the UK.
In the US the threshold is a $25 spend on eligible items, while in the UK the threshold is £20 on eligible items to receive free shipping.
