Do Amazon Items Arrive Early

If you only give it a passing thought, you might figure that Amazon is trying to take advantage of the under promise/over deliver psychology tendency that often causes satisfaction. If the expected delivery date is March 29th and you receive the good on the 23rd, you might send warm thoughts to the delivery company because it arrived early.

While this psychological phenomenon does exist, there is also a legal angle that explains why Amazon grants itself this leeway. Your obligations and potential entitlements, depend on whether the goods arrived at the time you expected or before.

Most people do not know this, but if you purchase an item that arrives defective, you have to give the company a “reasonable opportunity” to cure the issue before the expected date. Say you order a giant Easter Bunny today that is scheduled for delivery by March 29th.

Now, of course, some companies can voluntarily establish a higher standard and offer refunds (within 30 days, usually) for all items no questions asked, but this is a competitive policy used to lure customers rather than the legal baseline that otherwise exists. If it arrives at or after the expected date, then you can get a refund because it is defective or keep the good and demand that you receive payment for the damages done.

The most notable exception to these general rules involves car purchases and what is called “the shaken faith doctrine.” If you buy a car on eBay Auto and it arrives ahead of time with transmission trouble, you are entitled to demand a refund or call off the sale without being forced to give the seller a reasonable opportunity to repair. As a matter of marketing, Amazon does a persuasive job advertising on its website that over 90% of orders are delivered ahead of schedule.

Release-Date Delivery is available for eligible pre-order items we can deliver on the release date to ZIP codes within the continental U.S. Shipping charges for Release-Date Delivery vary by item and are displayed on the order confirmation page.

Depending on the quality of Amazon ’s version, that knockoff could be good for consumers and bad for the merchant. Sadly for Amazon, the ambiguous definition of its customer means it can’t wipe out Shopify unless it stops using its market power to raise the fees it charges merchants while knocking off the products of its most successful third-party sellers.

According to the Journal, around 2010 Pirate’s owner Dale Thomas said that his company sold over $3.5 million worth of its Ravelli-brand camera tripods on Amazon. He ordered one of the Amazon tripods and found that it employed Pirate Trading’s design, had the same components, and used the same manufacturer, according to the Journal.

Amazon set its price for the tripod clone below what Thomas paid his manufacturer to make Pirate’s version. He decided to exit the business when he calculated that it would be less profitable for Pirate to pay its manufacturer to make its tripod than to buy Amazon ’s clone, repackage and resell it, according to the Journal.

Amazon cited authenticity issues as the reason it stopped selling the Pirate Trading tripods that competed with Amazonas’s clones. Stories like this create an opening for services aimed at merchants that don’t want to suffer Pirate Trading’s fate.

If a merchant sells a product for $10 on a Shopify store, they pay 59 cents for payment processing and “maybe a few dollars more for storage and fulfillment,” according to the Times. If a merchant is good at designing a product that customers want and marketing it effectively, Shopify is a better platform.

The Times reported that 86% of these generations would gladly post content for money and 54% would be social media influencers. A case in point is Kylie Jenner who has turned her existing social media audiences into a “billion-dollar e-commerce businesses seemingly overnight.” Consumers are eager to pay for such brands as long as they confer the magic feeling of being linked to a celebrity.

As the Times noted, in the recent past, a merchant operating on Shopify could pocket a $50 profit on a sweater it sold to consumers for $80. Facebook also wiped out the profits for brands that could keep their customer acquisition costs under control.

Joey Dillinger, All birds’s co-founder and co-CEO, told the Times that the company will not sell on Amazon or Foot Locker FL-0.1% because that would damage “its brand and pricing power.” They would love to devolve us into a feature-and-benefit set and then put every knockoff in the world next to us, and then just drive everybody down to the lowest price, even if you’re sacrificing quality,” he told the Times.

An Amazon spokesman told the Journal that its Galen shoe “didn’t infringe on All birds’ design” and that “offering products inspired by the trends to which customers are responding is a common practice across the retail industry.” What Amazon did to All birds makes it clear that it is not keen on allowing its most successful third-party merchants to survive.

Moomoo47 Well Amazon does release day delivery, so they ship it before the actual release date so it might get there a little early if you live close by to where the shipment is coming from, but generally no, they're more likely focused on making sure you get it on the 15th and might not ship until the 14th it just depends on how their release day delivery system works. If they want to make sure people get it on the 15th, then they might ship it two days early and it might come sometime late on the 14th, all depends.

They ship it out at a time that should get it to you for launch, and due to this they sometimes give a big enough gap that ends up getting you an item before its “release” I have pre-ordered a few games on Amazon and never gotten them before release day.

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.

The issue isn’t that Amazon gives an exaggerated estimate for the worst case scenario, it’s that they don’t give an accurate picture by stating the delivery estimate is, for example, 4 to 21 business days. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the effect of this is to push buyers into purchasing from sellers who use FBA.

If the customer is asking, you can tell them Amazon sets an extended delivery window to cover delays but the vast majority of packages are delivered far sooner than the time Amazon allows for. Make sure your handling times is only one day and you use USPS for postage and that should lessen the delivery window.

The problem is that the Amazon tracking page only provides the end of the delivery window. So on the tracking page the buyer only sees “Arriving {last date of the window}”.

The tracking page also provides the tracking number from the shipper (USPS, UPS etc) and a buyer could copy and paste that number into the shippers website and get a more detailed account of where the package is in the system. Regardless, I would definitely say that the expected delivery date is unrelated to any perceived preference to sellers.

Package was shipped via first class mail bought through Amazon. In case you have NOT figured this part out yet, Amazon caters to the BIG SELLERS.

That would be the guys who get lots of orders and ship by the LOWEST COST and thus the SLOWEST method imaginable to mankind. To protect those sellers Amazon sets delivery dates far out into the future.

I do have the ability to set my dates quicker but I prefer to leave them longer. Unfortunately while they cater to those guys they can’t find a way for those of us on the “old platform” to convert and not lose our feedback, etc.

This is also a problem for international shipping, which Amazon tells buyers will take 3-6 weeks. +>>In case you have NOT figured this part out yet, Amazon caters to the BIG SELLERS.
