That’s because Amazon is reportedly adding a $9.95 fee on each delivery order from the grocery chain starting Oct. 25. The move comes to offset the service’s operating costs, according to a Whole Foods spokesperson. Customers previously enjoyed free delivery on all grocery orders over $35.

The service fee has already been in effect as part of a pilot test in certain markets around the country, including the Detroit, Boston and Chicago metro areas, as well as in Portland, Maine; Providence, Rhode Island; and Manchester, New Hampshire.
