While the beginning of the corona crisis, Amazon stopped free shipping to Israel, last week the company announced that it was returning its regular shipping to Israel. If the products are relatively small, the shipping price is attractive and amounts to a few dollars, but there are cases where it is more profitable to buy in the country.

One day it went down, in late March, the counter went down and Amazon stopped shipping to Israel, in general. The company then returned its express shipments, which did not help much as these are very expensive shipments that make any transaction almost unprofitable.

Last week, Amazon decided to resume operations and announced the return of regular shipments to Israel. Now, the shipping cost of small products amounts to only $ 4-13, a price very similar to shipping within Israel, which makes the price of many products (including shipping) attractive.

“Online consumption has risen by tens of percent since the outbreak of the Korna crisis, people have become accustomed to buying online and the expectation is that those who have become accustomed will not return to physical stores so quickly, even when the crisis is over,” said Maayan Prilok, who founded a Facebook consumer group. “Once you cross a certain barrier and realize that you can buy everything from home and that you can return a product if we don’t like it, we lose some of the need to walk around the stores.”

How do you know which product is profitable on Amazon and which is not?

“The products that are supposed to be particularly lucrative are mostly small products that do not weigh much and do not have a large volume,” states Frilock. “You should include the shipping price in the order and make sure that it is indeed more affordable than its price in Israel. Keep in mind that shipping in Israel also costs NIS 20-35 and therefore, if the price of the product on Amazon is lower and the shipping price is similar in Israel, it will probably pay to buy it on Amazon. The alternative. “

“Many products still see expensive shipping via Amazon and express delivery only. It is likely that these days Amazon’s systems are working overtime to update prices and within a few days we will see regular and relatively cheap shipping prices on all products on the site,” explains Frilock. “In addition, there are sites that monitor prices on Amazon at any given moment and find out when there is a drastic price drop on certain products. The CAMEL CAMEL site monitors prices at any given moment and indicates products that have discounts,” says Frilok. “Amazon itself also publishes daily and lucrative daily deals and it is recommended to follow.”
