Freight is a whole subject on Amazon but we’ll keep it all here and in the how to loose text further down. Winning on Amazon involves not paying freight for anything, to do that the first step to secure that you don’t risk on doing that is to use the filter and set it to fulfilled by Amazon. As that will set the result to only show items that are fulfilled by Amazon, if it’s fulfilled by Amazon the freight is free if you have Amazon Prime no matter the price (press here to read more about Amazon Prime). Amazon Prime is also a great way to win on Amazon if you’re a frequent buyer on Amazon as the added value for that point alone is massive and you get a lot of other extra stuff with the membership! If you do not have Amazon Prime you need to shop for more than 229 SEK to not pay any freight. And remember the rules are also different for the freight depending on which Amazon you’re at (.se/.de/.nl/.co.uk and so on) and to make it more complicated it’s also dependent on where you’re shopping from. So for example shopping from Amazon.de and delivery to Sweden is always 5.99€ while it’s free at a threshold for shoppers in Germany.
