Consumers like their free delivery

|By:, SA News Editor

A survey from comScore indicates 58% of consumers have added items to their shopping cart in order to qualify for free shipping.

More than 80% of respondents said they would be willing to wait an additional two days for a delivery in order to qualify for free shipping.

The results fall in line with the general margin-crunching trends at UPS (UPS -0.2%) and FedEx (FDX -0.6%) of seeing a higher mix of lower-cost delivery orders.
