Amazon Prime Users Can Now Choose Their Delivery Days
Amazon has launched a new service for Prime members. Starting today, Prime customers can select which day of the week they want to receive deliveries through a program called Amazon Day.
With Amazon Day, shoppers can group their purchases together to ship at one time. For instance, if a Prime member placed an order on Monday and another order on Tuesday, he could request both orders to be delivered on Thursday. This could reduce the number of packages for the order, which cuts down on costs and the environmental impact.
Amazon Day is part of Amazon’s Shipment Zero project. The company aims to have 50% of its shipments reach net zero carbon by 2030. Net zero refers to an environmental movement where businesses utilize renewable energy to reduce their carbon footprint.
Members can still opt for standard two-day Prime shipping. They can also choose which parts of their order(s) they want to be included with Amazon Day. This creates a more customized online shopping experience, where users receive their packages at a time that best suits their schedule.
Shoppers can add to their Amazon Day orders before they arrive, and can change their delivery date as needed. Amazon says most items that qualify for Prime two-day shipping also qualify for Amazon Day.
