Amazon Prime members rejoice! Amazon is spending a reported $800 million dollars to bring their operations up to a standard that will support a standard 1 day shipping option for Amazon Prime members versus the 2-day standard. That’s right! Amazon CFO says, ”We’re currently working on evolving our prime free two-day shipping program to be a free one-day shipping program.”
Whoa! Amazon Prime Standard Shipping Will
Now Soon Be Only 1 Day
According to CNBC,
Amazon is making one-day shipping the standard for Prime members.
Chief Financial Officer Brian Olsavsky said on the company’s first-quarter earnings call on Thursday that it plans to shorten the current two-day default free shipping plan by one day for Prime members.
”We’re currently working on evolving our prime free two-day shipping program to be a free one-day shipping program, ” Olsavsky said.
In order to make the change, Amazon is expected to spend $800 million in the second quarter improving warehouses and delivery infrastructures, Olsavsky said. The investment will cut into Amazon’s profit margins, and the company gave lower-than-expected earnings guidance for the period.
This is a pretty sweet new perk of Amazon Prime. What do you think of this latest enhancement?
