Not only does it give an excuse for delivery people to pretend to deliver, but even if they do and any passerby sees it I could disappear. If you click on that and add the tracking number and your postcode (on Tuesday morning, the day of delivery) it will show you an expected time of arrival.
It may be that those requesting this are fairly relaxed about security where they live and I would not really have concerns on low value items, on higher value then it’s simply not at option, a signature is required whatever view the buyer may express. If a buyer asks you to add the message, then you should (to standard packet post items).
But you should make it clear in a reply email that the parcel is being left at their own risk… sometimes they change their minds then! More expensive couriered items do usually need a signature, and then we normally contact the buyer for further instructions or a different delivery address e.g.
Gardening Delights Ltd: If a buyer asks you to add the message, then you should (to standard packet post items). If someone wants there post delivered by Royal Mail left elsewhere other than the delivery point they should put it in writing and supply this to the depot, then should a parcel disappear the recipient is accountable rather than the postman.
TNT is the same, you should fill a form so the driver isn’t held accountable should something go wrong. For couriers the cheaper ones will probably do it anyway, requested or not, the better ones would hopefully refuse to just leave something on a door step because the parcel said so.
I agree don’t expect Amazon to back you up, you have to make your own risk analysis based on the value and type of goods. I have an A to Z going at the moment where we have a signature but customer is disputing it is them because the silly driver accepted a name of Russell Crowe.
I’ve a feeling that they are going to go against us despite our evidence because we use APC and the signature is not digital but on the drivers sheet which we have provided a photo of. While most deliveries make it to customers without issue, we are ready to support you in the event of an emergency involving Amazon Logistics and Amazon Flex delivery drivers.
If no secure location is available, or the delivery requires someone to be present, Amazon will send an e-mail to the e-mail address on file. If the third delivery attempt is unsuccessful your package will be returned to Amazon for a refund.
You can visit Find a Missing Package That Shows As Delivered for more information. If you checked these places, and you still can't locate your package, please contact us, and we'll be happy to look into it for you.
Our team of experts will get in touch with Amazon customer service support and request a refund for your lost package. Going through this process can be such a drag sometimes because their site can be overwhelming due to the sheer amount of information on it.
Going through your orders and finding the one you want to refund will likely take you ages, which is why Dorothy is a better, faster option. Bear in mind that the Amazon mobile app is constantly updating, so many users are finding it hard to get used to.
The process is similar to the one you can do on the Amazon website, but since the app is hard to navigate, it can take even more time to submit that request. With the Dorothy web app, everything is super quick because you can take care of your refund request in a few easy steps.
This guarantee only applies to products bought on the Amazon website or from a third party seller. The time it takes to get your money back depends on what refund method you choose.
In case your package is marked as delivered but is nowhere to be found, you need to contact Amazon and the police department. If Amazon does not provide you with a refund even though you presented strong evidence that your item has been stolen, we can help you sue them in small claims court.
A virtual credit card, created by our founder and CEO, Joshua Broader, can help you sign up for an indefinite amount of free trials without them being continued into paid memberships upon expiration. But when you sign up for a free trial, all of your private information is kept secret so that the merchant cannot misuse it.
The card generates random numbers every time you sign up for a free trial, so you never have to worry about paying for an unwanted subscription ever again. Employees are eligible after one year of service, but there is a caveat: Those who accept the offer can never work at Amazon again.
This program, which is called Pay to Quit, was first created by online shoe retailer Campos, which Amazon bought in 2009. Campos only extended the offer to its newest employees, within the first few weeks of employment, and the “quitting bonus” was set at $1,000.
In fact, the headline on the memo states “Please Don't Take This Offer,” according to founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. While Pay to Quit may not necessarily push employees to work harder, he says, it does address the issue of commitment to stay.
In effect, employees who decline the offer are psychologically “signing on the bottom line” and recommitting to the company, says Burch ell. On the flip side, disengaged workers are more likely to accept the offer, says Burch ell, and these types of employees cost organizations a substantial amount of money.
According to Gallup, an actively disengaged employee, someone who is unhappy and unproductive at work, costs their organization $3,400 for every $10,000 of salary, or 34 percent. Though it may cost the company more money to rehire and retrain someone in the short-term, he says, Amazon is able to then fill that position with a more qualified employee.

Amazon just delivered a couple of packages including one for my husband which had alcohol in it. The delivery driver asked me for my date of birth to enter into his handheld device.
I offered to show my driving license but restated that I wasn't happy to have my Date of Birth recorded in the device. I asked what Amazon uses the data for, and he couldn't tell me, but said someone had been fired for not collecting this information on a delivery.
In the end my husband signed for it, gave his date of birth and is going to contact Amazon to find out more. But all the delivery driver needs to do is to check some ID to prove they are over 18, and s/he can tick a box saying they've seen proof of age.
After all, when you purchase alcohol in a shop, you just show ID, you're not asked to input anything there. And shop staff don't need to ask for ID if you are clearly over-25. They just tap a button to say they can see you are of age to buy alcohol.
A bottle of gin came from Amazon for my sister yesterday, and he asked for my date of birth. You’ve overthought this, it’s just a little thing for them to input to prove you’re over 18, a tick box would be a quicker way though I agree with that.
What is the point of him asking if you can just make up a date? Surely he needs to see ID, if he wants proof of age. Like so many things related to personal data, the issue is that the problem they're trying to solve does not require a sledgehammer, which is what is happening here.
Absolutely that a check box for the driver saying it was delivered to someone who looked over 25/on seeing proof of age would be more than sufficient. In my case, at our school where they're so busy protecting everyone for GDPR they've completely lost any ability to be sensible.
We are both in our 60s and the item that required proof that we were over 18 was a pack of Schweppes tonic water! The customer service person just kept saying that they would make it clearer on their website that you would need to show proof of age on delivery.
I couldn't get her to understand that tonic water is a soft drink suitable for all ages. Yes exactly, understand the guy was just doing his job, and I had no problem showing my driving license to prove my age.
Twice my hubby has ordered alcohol from Amazon and I've never been asked for my date of birth. Terms and conditions when buying alcohol on Amazon, clearly state you will need to give your date of birth to receive the order.
I’ve cancelled it because the drivers were insisting on seeing proof of my age when they delivered the wine. I regularly have wine delivered from Majestic, Cato, Tesco, Morrison etc and those drivers are allowed to use their common sense.
