Amazon.ca today announced the launch of Amazon Prime, a membership program that provides “all-you-can-eat” Free Two-Day shipping to customers for an annual fee of $79.
The Prime membership offers unlimited "free" shipping on millions of eligible items on Amazon's Canadian website (with no minimum purchase).
“We are proud to bring Amazon Prime to Canada,” said Steve Oliver, country manager for Amazon.ca. “Amazon Prime offers its members the convenience of fast, free shipping on millions of eligible items, whether the order is for a single DVD or a kitchen mixer. There is no minimum purchase amount and no need to consolidate orders, so Canadians from coast-to-coast can enjoy a simpler, faster shopping experience."
Prime is available on items across electronics, baby, kitchen, books, movies, music, watches, sporting goods, tools and other product categories. Amazon Prime also offers customers in most areas of Canada one-day shipping for as low as $3.99 per item.
However, Canadians will not get access to video streaming like US members. Canadians can try Amazon Prime for one month free here.
