Amazon is one of the most trusted online shopping stops for customers all over the world. It has, again and again, proved its worth by coming up with innovative ideas for the convenience of its customers. Amazon, the online shopping giant is also known for its eco-friendly concepts and other social responsibility programs for communities.
This time, Amazon will now let the customers choose the day and time for the delivery according to their wish. The company will provide this service in exchange of additional charges. The service has already been launched in Italy and will be available for selected cities in UK.
Amazon has always kept good records when it comes to the fast one-day or same-day delivery for Prime members. However, the fast delivery options were free for only the Prime customers, the regular customers have to pay extra charges to avail the speed delivery. But, this new delivery option will cost both Prime and Non-Prime members. For choosing the day and time of the delivery, Prime members have to pay € 4.49, and the Non- Prime members can avail it at € 10.49.
Though this service can be availed by everyone through Amazon.co.uk, it is mainly available in the main Italian cities like Milan, Turin and Florence. According to the reports, the new service will soon be available for major cities in the UK also.
How it works?
The customers will now be able to receive their delivery at any time they want from Amazon. With this service, they can now concentrate on their work without any worry about the sudden arrival of the parcel. All of these will be available for € 4.49 for Amazon Prime users and € 10.49 for non-Prime users.
There are time slots available in every two hours. Customers just have to choose the time slots according to their taste. The available time slots are as follows:
- 09:00 – 11:00
- 11:00 – 13:00
- 14:00 – 16:00
- 16:00 – 18:00
- 19:00 – 21:00
- 21:00 – 23:00
This delivery option will only be available on Monday and Friday as Saturday and Sunday time slot is reserved for the classic deliveries. Reports also suggest that the Prime members can also activate the delivery reservation on products with delivery in one day and at a cost of € 3.49 instead of € 4.49.
For now, this delivery option is only available in Italy and will soon be launched in the UK. We don’t know exactly when Amazon will make this service available in India. But, we are looking forward to this as it will certainly be a huge help to the people who face problems with the delivery timings.
