Wal-Mart ditches Shipping Pass membership, offers free 2-day delivery
Starting from today, WalMart will offer two-day guaranteed free shipping of over 2 million essential items present in the store inventories. There is no minimum purchase price for free site-to-store shipping.
"We don't think it's necessary to charge for a membership", Marc Lore, Wal-Mart's president and CEO of USA e-commerce, said Monday. "It no longer makes sense to charge for it", said Marc Lore, CEO of Wal-Mart's e-commerce efforts. Amazon uses it to drive growth and subsidize features like free two-day shipping, as well as pay for extras like original video content. All those differences have contributed to Amazon becoming the leading e-retailer in the world, while Walmart is a distant sixth, according to Euromonitor. "We don't think it's necessary to charge a membership fee for it". The company will offer refunds for ShippingPass membership fees.
