Thanks to Amazon’s logistics network, they are able to offer customers speedy deliveries either within a couple of days, or within the same day itself, although usually within a timeframe of a couple of hours. However what if you needed something like right this instant? Amazon has the answer for you in the form of Instant Pickup.
As the name suggests, this is a Pickup service and not a delivery service, meaning that you will have to collect it yourself from one of Amazon’s self-service lockers. However not every item on sale on Amazon will be available for Instant Pickup, but rather it will be used more towards need-it-now items like food, drinks, personal care items, and so on, which we guess makes sense since sometimes there are certain items we need at the last minute only to realize we don’t have it at home or with us.
According to Ripley MacDonald, Director, Student Programs, Amazon, “As shopping behaviors continue to evolve, customers consistently tell us that they want items even faster. Whether it’s a snack on-the-go, replacing a lost phone charger in the middle of a hectic day or adding Alexa to your life with an Echo, Instant Pickup saves Prime members time.”
