If no one is at the address when delivery is attempted, we will leave the package in a secure location. 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.
For scheduled and signature deliveries, our drivers will place a call to the phone number you provided for your order, but will not attempt to deliver the package outside the time frame of 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. unless they are able to reach you. You can visit Find a Missing Package That Shows As Delivered for more information.

Adding Saturday pickups allows you to reach your customers one day sooner, * and gives you an extra day to fulfill weekend orders. 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 arrival of a parcel from Amazon is often a happy moment but coming home to discover a ‘we missed you’ slip from a courier is less so.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is one of the top ten richest persons in the world. Currently, Amazon is delivering packages to almost every single city on Sundays.
It all started in November 2013 when the negotiated service agreement got approved by the Postal Regulatory Commission, the giant retailer will use the USPS’s Parcel Select service to deliverAmazonpackages. The program started in the New York and Los Angeles metropolitan areas, and later it expanded to more major cities.
Now, the Postal Service delivers Amazon packages to almost every city in the U.S. on Sunday. You don’t need to pay any extra fee for Sunday shipping.
Amazon Prime account customers can place their order as late as Friday and expect to receive the package on Sunday. Amazon doesn’t provide any special notice that it is going to deliver your item on Sunday.
USPS calls for temporary help on Sundays, and in return, it pays them back. It depends on the location of your house from the warehouse where all the packages are kept for the final delivery.
The carriers start delivering packages to their routes at 9:00 a.m. That’s the schedule for Sunday. On the rest of the days, United Parcel Service (UPS) delivers packages, and the delivery time or schedule of that company is just like the same given above.
The world’s largest retailer company delivers on the given day. If you have any doubt or question about Amazon Sunday shipping, then you may leave a comment below.
The delivery time of USPS during Saturdays depend on multiple factors such as: For letter carriers, there isn’t any difference between Saturday and a normal day.
A letter carrier doesn’t leave his or her way unfinished willingly. According to the deal, it started delivering Amazon packages to Los Angeles, New York, and other metropolitan areas like Dallas, New Orleans, Houston, and Phoenix.
The postal service already lost $52 billion since 2007, and continued to do so if certain reforms weren’t taken. Two of the proposed ways to prevent USPS from collapsing is to stop USPS Saturday delivery since it just adds up to the cost, as well as closing unneeded post office locations that only have very few clienteles.
If they do not want to privatize it though, we can still opt to open up some competitions as done by Sweden and New Zealand. These reformed changes made the postal systems of these countries lived more years and there was an improvement seen on services and efficiencies offered by these companies to the postal services which benefited productivity and consumers as well.
In fact, it is the quickest domestic service, which is available throughout the year and can reach to any address in the United States, even including PO boxes. The advantage of it being accessible for an extremely low cost or at least, affordable gives a customer a reason to proceed with it.
The price starts with $23.75 at different Post Office locations as well as online. But if a customer happens to be an Amazon Prime member, then he or she can place an order even on Fridays and can receive his or her delivery by Sunday.
On the other hand, if you use Priority Mail Express, then USPS guarantees an overnight delivery. However, keep in mind that the delivery time might vary based on the location and volume of the mail.
Besides being the third largest employer for civilians in the United States, it already made its name in the postal operations for 45 years and counting. Also, according to the USPS Package Intercept Program, one can redirect his/her undelivered or unreleased domestic shipment for delivery.
If you have an urgent situation that cannot be ignored (example: you are leaving the city), and you need the mail or package soon, you can call USPS customer service for help. There are instances where they let customers pick up their packages or mails but only if the reason is valid.
So at such times, it is better to cancel the home delivery and get the package yourself from the post office. However, if the situation does not agree with the first two scenarios, the carrier may bring back or leave your package to the nearest post office.
By then, they may allow you to pick up the package given that you bring your slip and a valid identification card or ID for security purposes. This means that this time, you are the sender, and you have your package lost, or you have your item not yet released or delivered, and you want to get it back.
At such times, you should submit a request for this type of amenity with an input of the sender’s address. Take your item at the retail counter of the Post Office if it weighs more than 13 ounces.
When scheduling a pickup, first, submit your request online and have your items ready before the specific carrier arrives. For people who are always on the move, remember to update your shipping address every time you go out for home transfer.
When printing postage stamps, you can have it in a moment by doing it online so you don’t need to carry yourself to the local office. Upon receiving, you may confirm sender’s information such as the name and address for security purposes.
This proposal was a few days after President Donald Trump tweeted about Amazon. In April, Trump issued an order to set up special task force to inspect the USPS, saying that it was on an “unmaintainable financial path.” He also tweeted saying that USPS is the new Amazon ’s “delivery boy” and does not make money from their business.
And since Amazon is one of the biggest customers of USPS, this could be a great move but this would also cost the big e-commerce giant a lot. Besides Amazon, even companies like UPS & FedEx will be blown from such high costs.
