Online clothing and outdoor gear retailer L.L. Bean is upping the ante in the online shopping arena. L.L. Bean is trying to get a leg up on the competition by offering free shipping to customers, regardless of the order size.
Following the lead of Zappos.com, L.L. Bean orders will now ship free, with no minimum order requirement. This will put pressure on other retailers to go the No Miniumum Free Shipping route as well. For example online retail giant Amazon.com still only has free shipping on “qualified” super saver free shipping, and a minimum order requirement of $25. You can bet they are now taking a long hard look at dropping all the restrictions after L.L. Beans announcement.
The trend towards free shipping has been increasing rapidly over the last 2 years as online retailers look to increase market share and to maintain the rapid revenue growth of previous years.
