France sets minimum delivery fee for online book sales to help independent stores compete

French lawmakers voted to impose a minimum delivery fee of 3 euros ($2.93) for online book orders of less than 35 euros to level the playing field for independent bookstores struggling to compete against e-commerce giants. A 2014 law already prohibits free book deliveries, but local book stores typically charge up to 7 euros for shipping a book.
