End of Amazon free shipping to Israel?
« on: March 21, 2020, 06:53:36 PM »
Seems like it's gone. Plus lots of items that shipped last week to Israel no longer do.
Say it ain't so :(
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

I'd imagine cargo rates have gone up. And Amazon excess goods for sale have gone down.

Hopefully. Doesn't seem consistent that they would drop out without notice after all the work and money they invested in Israel. It would have made sense if they opened a warehouse here and stopped the shipping from America but the suddenness of the move makes me hope this is just a Covid 19 response.

Don't forget that Amazon ships everything by air and there are very few flights left between Israel and the U.S. Maybe their contract was with Delta and/or United and they aren't sure they will have a shipping method in the near future...
