Setting up Steps to Prevent Lost Amazon Shipments: Do Not Add Specific Time

💡 When you proceed to checkout, if you come across delivery time slot options, just like that highlighted in the red box shown, please DO NOT select. Otherwise, your package will be handled by an independent contract courier, increasing the likelihood of delivery outside of US warehouse office hours and the potential for leaving the package directly at the front door of the warehouse.

Choosing those without a specified delivery time slot option below the red box is a more effective way to ensure the safety of your package.

💡 For Amazon, we also highly discourage selecting the ‘Prime delivery option’

With similar reasoning and logic from the tip above, avoid selecting the prime delivery option upon checkout to ensure the safety of your package.
