The typical shipping times on Amazon are from 8 AM to 8 PM. They typically won’t deliver after 8 PM. Your order, however, can arrive as late as 10 PM if you’re an Amazon Prime member.
If you are an Amazon Prime member, you have the option to schedule your packages for a specific day and time. You can even choose a different address other than your home address if you want. It’s really easy to set up these preferences in your account settings.
What Time Does Amazon Stop Delivering?
As we mentioned, earlier on average Amazon ships packages between the hours of 8 AM and 8 PM.
The time it takes for an Amazon delivery to arrive will vary based on where you live. The carrier that delivers your package from the warehouse where it was packaged to your residence will determine how quickly it reaches its destination, as well as how long it takes for an Amazon package to be delivered.
Carriers also differ in terms of how quickly they deliver packages. For example, UPS and FedEx generally have faster delivery times than the United States Postal Service (USPS), though all three carriers deliver packages with varying levels of efficiency depending on where they are located within a given city or town.
The type of item ordered also impacts when an order is delivered by Amazon, with items like books taking longer than other types due to their size and weight.
Will the Package Come if I am Not Home?
If you’re not going to be home when your package arrives, don’t worry. The courier will make an attempt to get in touch with you to set up another attempt or leave a note with more details at your door. Additionally, a text message will be sent to you with a special URL to manage your shipment.
How to Change Delivery Times on Amazon Prime
Go to the Manage Your Prime Membership page, click on “Edit Your Delivery Address” and enter your new address.
Select a different delivery date for your order.
How to Add a New Home Address on Amazon
The easiest way to add a new address is by going to Prime Now, clicking on the menu icon (the 3 horizontal lines) and then choosing “Your Account”. From here, you’ll see an option called “Manage Your Prime Now Account”. Clicking this will take you to another page where you can update your shipping address.
You’ll then be able to select your current city as well as any other cities that may have been added in the past. You can also add a secondary location if desired, but it’s not necessary unless Amazon has already shipped at least one item there.
Does Amazon deliver till 10pm?
Between 6 am and 8 pm, Monday to Saturday, Amazon delivers parcels and groceries. Your order can arrive as late as 10 PM if you are an Amazon Prime member and chose either same-day or two-day delivery for your package.
Here’s the bottom line: Amazon is available 24/7, but will stop delivering packages at different times on different days. After setting your mind at ease that your overnight delivery or Sunday delivery will arrive on time so long as you order within the cutoff, you can breath easy. Well, as long as there aren’t any unforeseen or extreme weather events that are out of their control.
