Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, has today opened up its free delivery service for customers in an additional 17 European countries, allowing for free delivery of millions of its items on all orders that total over £25.

Only customers from UK and Ireland were previously able to benefit from free delivery within Europe but after today’s announcement, customers from Italy, Greece, Norway, Spain, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Sweden, San Marino, Netherlands, Denmark, Portugal and Finland will now be able to take advantage of the service.

Brian McBride, Managing Director at Amazon UK said:

“Free delivery has been an important part of the great value Amazon shopping experience for many years and we are delighted to announce its availability to even more European customers in time for Christmas.

The aim is for European customers to be able to purchase anything they want to buy online at a low price from a vast selection of products. Now, tens of millions of customers in Europe can also benefit from delivery to their door, absolutely free of charge.”

As Amazon continues to incorporate more and more products into its shopping portal, this will be good news for customers in the above 17 countries, especially as the holiday season approaches, undoubtedly lining Amazon’s pockets in the process.
