You can get your Amazon purchases delivered to an alternate location other than your home or business address when you shop online. Perhaps your apartment building doesn’t have a mailroom or doorman, or maybe you would rather pick up a package on your way to another destination. There may be a gift you would like to keep as a surprise. It doesn’t matter what the reason is, there is an easy, convenient solution: Amazon Locker.
You can arrange for your Amazon orders to be shipped to a location that you choose. You can then pick up the orders at your convenience, and rest assured knowing that they are safe and secure. Prime members have the option of free shipping to a Locker. It takes just a few minutes to set up Amazon Locker. First, you will need to select a location near you. You can search by address or zip code to locate a pickup location near you and then add it to your address book. In addition to the operating hours, the page includes directions to the locker. Additionally, you can add Amazon Locker locations to your address book from your Amazon account by visiting “Your Addresses.”
After placing your order, ensure that you select the Amazon Locker location when checking out your cart. Following delivery confirmation, you will receive simple instructions for opening your locker and retrieving your package. You may need a code, barcode, or the Amazon Shopping app to open the locker. Your package will be available to you after you visit the locker. It’s important to note that not all items are available for Amazon Locker pickup, for example, they must weigh less than ten pounds, have a dimension smaller than 16 x 12 x 14 inches, and be a product that Amazon currently sells or fulfils.

In the event your order is not eligible for Amazon Locker pickup, you will not be able to select that option during the checkout process.
When you receive your package from an Amazon Locker, you have three calendar days to pick it up. If you do not pick it up within the three days, Amazon will return the item and refund you. Amazon offers accessibility features for all Amazon Locker users. In addition to talking features, large and high contrast text, and the ability to always choose a lower locker slot (15-48 inches from the ground), all lockers offer talking features. Additionally, your package can also be picked up by a friend, family member, or anyone else. Just forward the delivery confirmation email to them.
Every Amazon Locker is marked with a direct customer service number that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
