Amazon lets customers designate single day for weekly delivery

Amazon

Amazon Prime members will be able to group orders to come on one day through a new feature.

Amazon Day, available across the US, will allow customers to choose a certain day of the week as their delivery day.

A customer selects a convenient day through their account settings or at checkout and then all orders throughout the week will arrive via one delivery on the designated day. Customers can also choose to receive parcels on another day.

The ecommerce giant said the initiative was part of Shipment Zero, which aims for 50% of all shipments to have net zero emissions by 2030.

Amazon did not give details on whether or when the service would be rolled out to other markets.

Maria Renz, VP of delivery experience at Amazon, said: “Amazon Day adds another level of convenience to the many shipping benefits Prime members already enjoy. Prime members can now choose to get their orders delivered together in fewer boxes whenever possible on the day that works best for them.

“We’ve been testing this programme with a group of Prime members and Amazon Day has already reduced packaging by tens of thousands of boxes – a number that will only continue to grow now that the programme is available to Prime members nationwide.”
