Amazon’s Prime subscription service offers free two-day shipping as one of its best perks, and now the company is about to make things even better.
The Internet retailer is planning to transition Prime from free two-day to free one-day shipping as its default option, the company has revealed, enabling customers to get their products the day after they order them.
Amazon revealed its most profitable quarter ever on Thursday, stating that it made double what had been expected at $59.7 billion.
The Internet retailer follows Apple and Microsoft as one of the most profitable companies in the world, one that is increasingly expanding into a variety of markets.
During its Q1 2019 earnings call today, Amazon CFO Brian Olsavsky revealed that the company intends to evolve Prime from two- to one-day free shipping.
As with the current two-day shipping times, the new Prime default would be free — but unlike the existing free one-day shipping, customers wouldn’t be required to order a minimum dollar amount of products.
