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.
