OnePlus now offering free standard shipping on orders of $100 and up


Earlier today, OnePlus announced that it will now offer free standard shipping on larger orders. US customers have to place an order of at least $100 to get free standard shipping while European and UK customers have to meet a €100 or £60 minimum, respectively.

Aside from free standard shipping on all orders $100 an up, OnePlus is also reducing the cost of priority shipping. This reduction is dependent on the item you're purchasing, but as an example, US customers getting the OnePlus 2 now have to pay $9.63, down from $17.63 previously. Priority shipping for the same item will now cost European customers €16.49, down from €24.49. 

One way to look at this price correction is that OnePlus is now offering free shipping on its smartphones. While the savings are not big enough to change the perceived value of the current-generation OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X, this is surely a welcomed change for future customers. 

Also, it's worth reminding that the OnePlus X is only available for purchase without an invite on each Tuesday, while the larger and more powerful OnePlus 2 is openly available on any day of the week. 

What do you guys think of the company's decision to offer free standard shipping on orders $100 and up?

Poor Oneplus, They didn't manage the brand well when people appreciated it. Now, it's too late I think, when the market respond with much more competitive products, at the same price-tag like moto X Pure, Nexuses, and those wave coming from China also. Bye bye 1plus, I was dreaming of having you, money ready, no invite. Now I have so many more options !!

STILL will not buy from this SHAM company. "Startup" HA! OnePlus is NOTHING but the beta test arm of Oppo. Build a phone, leave a feature or two off, offer a low ball price, send it out and wait for the complaints. Fix the bugs, sell a few more, wait for hopefully less complaints, fix those and then put the missing features back in, sell it as the "new" Oppo device at a MUCH higher price. OnePlus One, then the Oppo Find7. OnePlus Two, and it was suppose to be the Find9, BUT! There was a problem, the 810 chip. Oppo had a good idea by making the entire frame a heat sink, but, it really didn't work. It still underclocks when it gets HOT. Oppo delayed the release of the Find9, until the 820 chip comes out.

You have a point but I need too remind you that the Oppo Find 7 released way before OP One.
