In today’s world of online shopping, no one likes to pay shipping costs and still have to wait a week for a package to arrive. That’s why Amazon Prime memberships, offering free two-day shipping at monthly or yearly rates, rose from 25 million in December 2013 to an estimated 90 million in September 2017. Of course, it also helps when that subscription includes a large library of videos.
