Amazon is seeking more business in Israel and reintroduced free shipping for orders that cost more than $65.

It’s not the first time that the e-commerce giant has offered discounts in order to try to boost Israeli sales numbers, according to a report in the Israeli business daily Globes.

Last year, Amazon offered free shipping for purchases over $49 but ended it after the coronavirus outbreak. In 2019, Amazon offered free shipping on orders of $80 or more.

Amazon has considered expanding operations in Israel to add to its Hebrew website, though the plan never came to fruition, said the report.

The current offer can be found at the top of Amazon’s website in Israel. The deal is limited to certain products.
