Free delivery for Swiss shoppers buying on Amazon’s German, French and Italian sites
Amazon has announced that Swiss online shoppers can now get free deliveries for products that they buy on Amazon’s German, French or Italian portals for orders over €49. Amazon announced the policy on its website on Friday (30 October), and NetComm Suisse, the Swiss e-commerce association, was quick to welcome the announcement.
Carlo Terreni, NetComm’s General Director, commented: “Today’s announcement from Amazon that delivery costs will not apply to orders over 49 euro for shoppers in Switzerland buying from the Italian, French or German website will clearly be warmly welcomed by Swiss consumers who will be able to choose from an even wider range of products compared to what is currently available.”
Terreni added: “It is worth noting that already 64% of Swiss online shoppers regularly buy from foreign websites, because in 72% of cases, they find products which are cheaper compared to those available on Swiss websites.
“Now, Amazon’s move, as well as raising the bar in terms of competitiveness, will undoubtedly push Swiss e-Commerce operators and the entire supply chain to further improve their offer and support services.”
