Nordstrom simplifies online ordering, offering free shipping for nearly all orders

Seattle-based fashion and apparel retailer Nordstrom Inc. has decided to offer free shipping on online orders for nearly all purchases less than $200.

Up to now, the policy had been free shipping only for purchases over $200.

Jamie Nordstrom, president of Nordstrom Direct, told media outlets that expanding its free shipping service will simplify online orders.

Earlier this month Nordstrom said its going to improve its e-commerce capabilities during the next five years. It will spend about $375 million on that effort.

Nordstrom is No. 34 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide.'s terms note that free shipping doesn't apply to Coach-brand items or on the Westin Heavenly Bed.  Free shipping, it also noted, will result in standard shipping. Faster shipping can be offered for $15 (two-day delivery) or $35 (Saturday delivery).
