Amazon.com now offers free shipping to Israel on many items with an order of $49 or more!

You can view sample items that ship free to Israel here.

The new lower free shipping threshold allows you to avoid paying import taxes and value added taxes as Israel doesn’t assess those taxes on imports under $75. That makes $49-$75 orders the sweet spot for delivery to Israel.

Bulky and heavy items are excluded from free shipping. You can see if an item qualifies for free shipping by changing your shipping address on the top left to Israel:

 

And then click on a product, like this deal on Green Toys, to see if it says eligible for free shipping to Israel on $49+ orders:

 

At checkout, just select free shipping:

 

One DDF member notes that you should allow a couple of days between orders, so that multiple orders don’t get lumped together in the same shipment and become subject to import taxes and value added taxes. However, others say that has not happened to them.

finally!

Thanks! Do you know how long this free shipping promotion will last?
Just for the “high holidays” of November or the new standard?

Judy Frankel

This is amazing!

Yitz

What about returns? Can I make a $49 order and return whatever I don’t need?

Sharon Cohen

Grandma’s dream comes true!

Upon checkout, it is asking for recipients passport for customs clearance. Is there any way around that?

Moe

There should be no reason to not put it in. You can also assume you know the number…

Yael Horovitz

it just helps the package get to you smoother in Israel. people usually list their teudat zehut number for this purpose

moG

ID required for customs clearance
We’ll need your ID information within 48 hours of placing your order or it will be canceled. Delay in providing ID, may impact your delivery date.

Mesila

When Target did it, it only lasted a few hours and most orders were cancelled. I hope this lasts longer..

Abraham

I’m so excited! I don’t know why… I don’t live there but I’m happy for them

yeah that’s been out for a few weeks and it’s super lame

AMAZING news. Incredible!! I have not been this happy since Chanuka 2018

Dan\'s the Man

Thanks Dan. I finally found a way to avoid state sales tax. Ship it to a friend in Israel have them send it back to the States when a friends comes here! Who would have ever thought we in America would be shipping things to Israel to save money.
Just kidding of course but isn’t the irony funny? Maybe states here should learn a lesson and have a minimum order amount that is subject to sales tax.

Might be easier for you to ship somewhere in the State of Delaware to save on the sales tax. DE pays 0% tax

Just remember when purchasing appliances etc that you get 220v

Raf

Its not that great for Israel’s economy. Small businesses are going to close

Mesila

Or they can improve their customer service and prices!

Moe

And not charge VAT?

Anon

Maybe they should realize that Israel is not immune from Globalization and e-commerce and if they don’t adapt – IE, actually attempt to care about their customers, they are going to close.

Business’s that suck and can’t adept should close.
I ordered something from Azrieli.com which is the “Israeli Amazon”. I ordered the stuff last Tuesday and it is scheduled to be delivered this Thursday. BTW, the delivery is to the Jerusalem branch of the Azrieli mall and not to my home since that would cost additional delivery fees.

Now compare that to Amazon where everything is significantly cheaper and now has free delivery which takes 4-5 to arrive to the post office near my house.

Compete or close!

IMO it’s not going to last long, Israel will slap a tax no doubt.

Ed

There has already been talk of eliminating the entire “under $75 ” vat exemption altogether. Since they are realizing that it’s hurting then…..

Jessica

Can anyone comment on how long it takes for items to get to Israel? (Jerusalem)

Chaya

Amazing!!!!!!!!!

Aron K

you could probably also make slight differences in the spelling of the name to avoid orders being boxed together…(?)

moG

Israeli’s arent that dumb…

Aron K

I would imagine Amazon boxes the items here. Regardless, if a label is different, I doubt it would be boxed together.

moG

If parts of my order have different delivery dates, does that mean it wont be delivered together?

Al

Hello, I am getting an error message when entering Zip for Har Nof. Could someone please advise. Thank you.

C

Your zip code should be 7 digits. If you google zip codes for israel, you can look up the zip code for your address.

Al

Never mind, I see from screenshot above you need to add two zeros at end of zip.

RH

Can we throw an Amazon party for all of us who will gain from this?! Life just got a whole lot easier!!

Mo

Does anyone know if there is also free return shipping. Also if there is not then what is the return policy?

Israel

I ordered something the day before they launched Amazon Israel and I got charged for shipping$30 andit got here in 3 days to my house aND just week ago got email saying that giving me back the shipping charges!!!!

Irit

Pls explain how to put in ship to Israel
Can it be several sellers ?

Zena Maslin

1. Make sure you have an official document with your exact name on it when you pick up. The name you’re sending to must match this name.

Zena Maslin

Does anyone know why Amazon is refusing to ship nutritional supplements and vitamins?

Travels

Multiple packages arriving within 72 hours, from the same vendor to the same person, are lumped together.
Sometimes (rarely) Amazon also combines multiple orders into one package, so you need to be careful of that as well.

FYI – Currently, all packages in Israel have to be picked up at the post office, including Amazon. The post offices have long lines and not always easy to deal with. My married kids work full time and have kids to deal with so have to plan shipments to them. May be cheaper, but not always convenient.

E.R.

Is there a charge for items heavier than 5 Kg? I just got an email that I need to put in a Teudat Zehut number for it to be released from customs.

D

Is this only for the us amazon site?

annie

does anyone know what shipping company amazon uses to ship to israel? i am trying to track a package from amazon that has an incorrect street name and is stuck at customs.

Sam

Ari

Is it true that now Amazon has cancelled all shipping to Israel? Now it seems that anything sold or fulfilled by Amazon does not ship to Israel

Michoel V\'Yitzchak

Dan, any idea if this free shipping to Israel is going to be restarted at any point?
