Amazon is giving up free shipments to Poland

The British branch of the online store Amazon announced that from now on all consignments carried to Poland will have to be paid for.

Amazon has announced the shipping fees to Poland and also to several other European countries. Among them are: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Gibraltar, Iceland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Sweden. Each order will now be associated with an additional cost, which in the case of Poland will be about $ 25.


Free shipping present has been available in the store  from October 2010 under the name of Free Super Saver Delivery. It pertained to orders with a value greater than £25. Amazon has not revealed its official reasons for changing these rule. Probably economic issues are hidden behind this decision.

The change seems to be surprising especially because in September last year Amazon announced opening of a logistics center in Poland. It is supposed to employ  about 6 thousand of Polish employees.
