Along with the confirmation that “most of the best-selling products in Amazon Pantry will soon be available on Amazon.es”, lThe company remembers on the website where it has announced Pantry’s goodbye that today, many products can be purchased on its main website.
Among the categories, food, drinks, home care, care and beauty, babies and pets stand out. The advantage so far of Pantry over the ordinary Amazon was that they had their logo and were shipped separately so they didn’t have to mix.
Yes, shipping costs were paid below purchases of 90 euros, which is now eliminated and will not apply in the future on Amazon. We look forward to how the service will continue to function in the sense of shipping logistics.
