You can operate from an iPhone or Android, but just be sure you meet the specific minimum requirements, as outlined on the FAQ page. Eventually, you’ll need to do a background check, which takes about two to four days to complete.
If you can’t make it, forfeit it at least 45 minutes before the delivery clock begins ticking down. Amazon does emphasize that this gig should not be treated as full-time income; it’s just a great way to earn some extra money in your free time.

I happen to live near the two busiest locations, so I tend to see them more often, but it just depends on availability. If you deliver packages (logistics) and would like to switch to Amazon Prime Now, you will need to change warehouses.
The opposite would be true as well: if you want to switch from Prime Now to Logistics (packages), you will need to change warehouses. Unless you want to change from Prime Now to Logistics or vice versa, there is no reason to change your warehouse, other than if you are moving out of the region, such as San Francisco to Los Angeles, or if you are moving to another state.
If you are one of the few AmazonFlex drivers who have moved out of state and need to change delivery regions, you will need to email to get this to happen. I emailed them and asked them to change to a Prime Now or Logistics Warehouse in a given city.
I was just changing from one Prime Now warehouse in Seattle to another in Boston, but you can try to see if they can swap it for you. Hello, In order to change your location, please select one service area you would like to be assigned to.
In the above email response, they list the warehouses in your requested region. In Boston, there is only one Prime Now warehouse since it just started a few months ago.
The update process may take several days and during that time you will not be able to accept any blocks. Please use the buttons below to vote about your experience today Other drivers noted that it took a few days to change warehouses, but it took about two weeks for me.
After waiting 11 days after the above response, I emailed them, asking about the progress of the change. They reiterated that it would take a few days and that I won’t be able to pick up blocks in the meantime, which was the same response I received above.
A day after I sent an email asking for the update, my region was successfully changed to Boston. I wasn’t sure if it was just a coincidence or that somehow the first support agent forgot to put in the change, but the entire process took under two weeks, which was pretty good.
