Ancestry DNA no longer on Amazon
« on: Wednesday 08 July 20 09:03 BST (UK) »
Ancestry DNA kits are no longer available on Amazon UK

https://www.amazon.co.uk/AncestryDNA-Genetic-Testing-Ethnicity/dp/B00TRLVKW0

You still seem to be able to order directly from Ancestry, but perhaps they want to discourage too many tests being sent in, due to less staff able to deal with them in the US?

Although they say that they are still testing, I've noticed that there are  far fewer matches coming through now.

They are not doing special offers on kits at the moment either

So you are probably right
I didn't know you could order via Amazon what was advantage over ordering direct ?

Free postage, which sometimes meant it was cheaper there, even if it was on offer at the same price (sometimes as low as 49).

Yes, definitely. It could be a problem with producing the actual kits themselves I suppose.
