It is understood that IKEA currently only has an E-Commerce business on the official website. The sales category covers more than 20 kitchen cabinets, home appliances and mattresses, and more than 9,000 products.

At present, the distribution methods provided by IKEA are divided into express delivery and truck delivery. The delivery of goods within 30 kilograms of a single piece is 9.9 yuan per piece; the delivery of goods is provided by goods within 30 cubic meters or more of a single piece. According to the distance, it is divided into three distribution standards: 69 yuan, 99 yuan and 199 yuan, and IKEA’s delivery fee is charged on a single basis.
