Delivery estimates are calculated by taking the estimated shipping date and adding the transit time (the time it takes a package to travel from our facilities to your destination address), based on the shipping speed you've chosen. The transit time is calculated using business days, meaning Saturday and Sunday don't count toward the transit time (unless we've specifically offered a weekend delivery during checkout).
For some delivery dates, we may provide an “order within” countdown timer that indicates the window of time in which you must place the order to receive your delivery by the date shown. FREE Two-Day Shipping through Amazon Prime If the item you're ordering is out of stock or unavailable to ship immediately, you may not receive the item in two business days.
Selecting One-Day or Two-Day shipping will reduce the transit time to one or two business days after we've shipped your order, but it won't impact how long it takes us to obtain the item or prepare it for shipment. Note: If you live in an area experiencing an unexpected service delay (severe weather, natural disasters, unscheduled events, etc.
), please add at least 2 to 3 business days to the estimated delivery date of your order. In some cases, choosing a higher quantity for an item may make it ineligible for immediate shipping, because multiple units may not be available locally or at the same location.
Maybe that’s more permissible as it might be more common and Sunday/Monday doesn’t run the risk to Amazon as someone marks shipped on the payday of Friday and than not actually dropping off? I assume that’s why there is or used to be the policy (combined with buyers maybe creating too much customer support asking why their order was marked shipped last night but at say 8am still isn’t showing up on USPS.com because USPS might not scan until later that evening).
Also, I’ve never used the dropdown list to change the date on the label, except maybe for Express Mail. If we package and label orders at night, we do so after 8pm EST / 5PM PST.
This is not something you can set, so you have to make sure your purchasing labels with a date on it that will have its acceptance scan. +If we package and label orders at night, we do so after 8pm EST / 5PM PST.
After this time, the labels you purchase through Amazon ’s shipping service will automatically have tomorrow’s date as the 'Ship Date+ And when you drop of a package at the post office at 4:59 on the same day, it often does not go out or get scanned until the next anyway.

I print my FedEx shipping labels on Friday night or Saturday or Sunday for Monday pickup. When I look at my orders it's always the next day for shipping date whether I print my labels or not.
I’ve never had a problem with shipping the day after I print my labels, never, and sometimes my packages are picked up as late as 7:00 – 7:30 pm, and they make the truck leaving the post office with their 2nd scan Amazon does not like the postage date to be in the future when you confirm the order.
This has never happened until this week, dunno if they're getting ready for the Xmas rush or something, but honestly, I don't want my delivery window to be open until 10 pm ! Please don't bother telling me IAU to use Amazon in the first place cos of their failure to pay tax etc.
To be honest I'd rather they delivered it at 10pm than 10am, I'm at work during the day and hate having to go to the demo to collect. However, unexpected knocks on the door late on make me quite anxious.
Just caught up a bit on sleep yesterday, and was planning on an early night tonight. We got an Amazon parcel about 9.30pm a couple of weeks ago.
Blimey, if they could guarantee delivering that time, I'd consider it worth signing up to prime. Imagine, actually getting parcels arrive when you've got a fighting chance of being home from work...
I don’t think 9.15pm is too late for most adults, unless they work extreme shifts. As always if you’re not happy with the service you receive you’re free to shop elsewhere.
But personally I find Amazon Prime far more reliable than the likes of My Hermes, UPS etc USPS Priority Mail Express is a guaranteed way to send documents and packages to a destination overnight or in one to two days on any day of the year, including Sundays and holidays.
If the US Postal Service doesn’t deliver your package on time, they will refund the full delivery cost to you. We do not have a regular carrier on the route and whoever gets stuck with it that day delivers it.
The regular letter carrier delivers all the mail and packages to you. But in light of the USPS extreme cost-cutting measures, and lack of proper hiring, at times mail is being delivered as late as 9:00pm (sad to say) in some areas of the country.
UPS Ground packages are generally delivered anytime Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. (and sometimes later) to residences, and to business addresses during their normal business hours Monday through Friday. UPS Ground packages cannot be scheduled to arrive at a specific time of day.
The Post Office said carriers should ring the doorbell or knock, but they said they aren’t required to wait for an answer unless a signature is requested. Carriers should ring the doorbell or knock when delivering a package, but they do not wait for an answer unless the sender or receiver requires a signature.
Average arrival time is 1 – 3 days with delivery confirmation. USPS Express Mail: for packages that need to get to their destination quickly.
