As part of a long-term test, Chinese online retailer Joyo.com says it is significantly lowering the order size needed to qualify for free shipping, making it easier for customers to save money and place orders with the company.
At the conclusion of this test, which is expected to last 3 to 6 months, Joyo.com will decide whether to make this change permanent.
Starting today, all Joyo.com customers will qualify for free shipping with qualifying purchases of CNY 99, instead of CNY 200.
"Joyo.com works hard to lower prices for customers, and we're eager to see how customers respond to this new free shipping test of CNY 99 Yuan," said Wang Hanhua, managing director of Joyo.com. "As part of Amazon.com, everything we do starts with the customer, and we never stop thinking about ways to make our customer's shopping experience with Joyo.com even better. We look forward to bringing our customers more improvements and innovations in the weeks and months to come."
In 2004, Amazon.com (AMZN) acquired Joyo.com Limited, which operates the Joyo.com Web site in cooperation with Chinese subsidiaries and affiliates.
