October 19, 2012–Almost everyone has encountered an issue with their mail carrier. Whether it’s getting someone else’s mail or not receiving your packages, delivery services can be a pain—and for Amazon Sellers it can be a nightmarish experience. Although we won’t get into it as a seller, Amazon buyers now have a new option.
Although Amazon.com unveiled their Amazon lockers earlier this year, the program is slowly becoming more and more popular. Amazon Lockers is a new feature where Amazon buyers can have their packages sent directly to a locker in their area. Once the package is delivered, buyers will receive an automated email (text message on request) providing a secret code to open the locker and get your package.
To pick up your package at an Amazon Locker:
- Take the unique pick-up code that you received via email or a text message to your locker location.
- Enter your code into the touch screen display.
- The compartment with your package will open.
Whether you have a horrible mail carrier or don’t have an actual mailbox, this service is fantastic. If you’re interested in finding Amazon lockers in your area, visit this website.
