How Can I Make A Complaint About A Missing Amazon Order?
Complaints about Amazon missing parcels depend on whether it was Amazon Delivery or a self-fulfilled delivery by a third-party seller.
Also, it depends on whether the item is eligible for Amazon Prime shipment. In case of doubt, file the complaint with Amazon Delivery, and they will guide you to the seller.
Still, this is the procedure to follow while reporting a missing delivery to Amazon:
First, check the delivery status through the Order History. If the item is delivered, check your home carefully and by your neighbor’s house too.
Sometimes, Amazon drivers will place your delivery out of sight for safety purposes.
Additionally, it would be best to verify your shipping address’s accuracy to confirm you gave the right information.
- Contact the Carrier for further information or inquire where your delivery might be. If you do not receive it in the next 48 hours, contact Amazon Customer Service.
- If the delivery is by Amazon Delivery, you can launch a claim for a refund by going to the Order List.
- Click the “View/ File Claim” field next to the unreceived item.
- Follow the screen prompts to select the reason for the claim. Remember to provide supporting documents.
- If the claim is valid, Amazon will approve it and refund it.
In comparison, follow this procedure to report a missing delivery from a third party seller:
- Contact your third-party seller for missed deliveries before making a claim. To do this, log in to the Amazon Pay website and select “Contact Seller.”
- Wait for up to 24 hours before filing a claim.
- File a claim at Amazon Pay by clicking the details next to the transaction with the complaint.
- Select the “Where is My Stuff” option and send it to the merchant to report the issue and initiate a refund.
- If the response is unsatisfactory, you can complain to Amazon Delivery using the procedure listed above.

I have tried to call about a driver and have been hung up on 4 times. Your customer service stinks. I am trying to find out how to report a driver. I got no help at all. A driver thinks it’s ok to use my circle thru driveway as his way to get to the next road. This is NOT the first time this has happened. My cameras caught your driver using my driveway, like a racetrack. To get to the road. Teach your drivers that private driveways are not meant for them. UNLESS THEY ARE DELIVERING PACKAGES!!!!!
On May 8th, I placed an order for an IPHONE SE and received my order with no delay on May 11th, 2022. When I opened the box that amazon delivered. Found out that the IPHONE was sealed but empty. Took pictures and Immediately contacted amazon and they agreed to replace it. On May 13th the replacement shipment order came and to my surprise the IPHONE case was sealed but again it was empty. Immediately took pictures and once again contacted amazon and they told me that they will replace it. Which they did. On May 17th we received the 3rd shipment and once again the IPHONE case was sealed but empty. Took pictures again and contacted amazon. This time customer service said that they couldn’t do anything else. Didn’t offer an Investigation or try to solve the issue that looks like it is internally from the company or warehouse. After so many years of doing successfully business with amazon. They didn’t care to follow up to resolve this issue. Telling me that they are not able to give me a refund or replacement which I don’t want any more. This is very BAD service. I received a letter saying that I need it to file a police report, which I did, because I want to get this fixed asap. How can I order a product and never receive it? The worst thing is the box from amazon came sealed inside 3 times but was empty the IPHONE BOX WAS EMPTY. I got an Amazon box with an empty iPhone case that was sealed. They Need to start an investigation, somehow the IPhone are missing/ disappearing from the box before delivery. This is Very bad and poor service. I just got my account closed because “supposedly didn’t comply with the terms of their conditions. According to them I created another account to place orders which is not true. I don’t know for which purpose I need to do that because I have been a customer since 2013 approx. I want the refund of this order. Pay with my debit card $450.00 plus a gift card of $30.00. I need this issue to get solved.
