A British online shopper is planning to buy a Christmas present via Amazon. But when she opened the time-to-receive option, she noticed that delivery fees over the Christmas period were as high as 9,999 pounds (about 90,000 yuan). If you want to pay the usual shipping fee of 2.99 pounds (27 yuan), you won’t receive the goods until at least January 11 next year.
The woman, named as Danielle Long, lives in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. The Daily Mail reported Wednesday that she plans to buy a mobile phone and tablet bag from Amazon.com, which costs 4.99 pounds (45.3 yuan). But when she chose the time to receive the goods, she found that the website’s “one-day delivery” and “fast delivery” charges were both 9,999 pounds, and there was no guarantee that it would arrive on Christmas Day; If you only want to pay a regular delivery fee of ?.99, the time of receipt will be between 11 and 21 January next year. According to the Daily Mail, it seems more like a system error.
Long eventually chose to pay a delivery fee of 2.99 pounds. She posted her experience on social media Facebook: “It’s so hard. I hope it’s a joke because I really want to receive it before Christmas. “
Amazon had no comment at the time of writing.
