Romania’s largest online retailer, eMAG, has changed the terms of its Genius service. Customers will now no longer benefit from free deliveries to easyboxes, showrooms and post offices for orders, given from the eMAG and Fashion Days apps, with a value less than 30 lei. Courier delivery remains free for orders over 100 lei.
The Genius service was launched in 2020 and has over 400,000 subscribers. The company says the decision was made to protect the environment. “There’s only one thing we want to do with your help: reduce carbon emissions by reducing the number of trips needed to deliver orders,” eMAG wrote in an email to Genius subscribers.
The full message sent by eMAG:
The company’s decision comes in a difficult economic environment with very high inflation and a recession looming.
Genius benefits can be used in four apps: eMAG, Tazz, Fashion Days and Freshfull. The subscription costs 99 lei a year and can be used by two family members.
