How Late Does Amazon Deliver?

Amazon typically delivers parcels and groceries between 6 a.m. – 8 p.m., Monday – Saturday, but in some cases, parcels may be delivered later, up to 10 p.m. if there is a large backlog of deliveries. For Sunday deliveries, Amazon drivers can drop off parcels from 9 a.m. to as late as 8 p.m.

If you are curious about Amazon’s delivery schedule and when you can expect your order to arrive, keep reading to find all the information you need.

How Late Does Amazon Deliver On Weekdays?

Amazon delivers most packages between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekdays and sometimes up to 10 pm if the driver is behind on deliveries.

The majority of the company’s deliveries are made throughout the week and should arrive during the day, with delivery drivers dropping off as many as 300 packages daily.

The delivery time for your package depends on delivery preferences and other orders in your area.

Sometimes drivers may make 20-30 stops per hour, and if multiple deliveries are in the same neighborhood, they should all arrive around the same time.

You can also nominate a delivery time or request a signature, with more flexibility available to Prime members.

Does Amazon Deliver Late On Saturday?

Eligible packages should arrive from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Saturday, although early deliveries starting at 6 a.m. or slightly later deliveries until 10 p.m. may be available in your preferences.

If you have a Prime membership, you can get late Saturday deliveries as part of your fast, free delivery options.

Does Amazon Deliver Late On Sunday?

Does Amazon Deliver Late On Sunday?

Sunday Amazon deliveries are available from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Amazon uses UPS, USPS, and their own Amazon Flex drivers to deliver packages across their networks on Sunday.

Whether or not you are an Amazon Prime member, Sunday deliveries are available so long as there is delivery coverage in your area.

While Prime members can take advantage of free two-day delivery to get orders placed on Friday delivered by Sunday, you may need to pay extra for regular expedited shipping for weekend Amazon deliveries.

Your delivery options will appear on each product page and during checkout so you can plan for weekend deliveries as required.

How Late Does Amazon Deliver Groceries?

Amazon Prime members can access fast grocery delivery and pickup through Amazon Fresh. You can select a 2-hour delivery window between standard Amazon delivery times from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Amazon Fresh is available in over 2,000 cities and towns across the U.S., and you can opt to receive groceries on-demand when it works for you, whether that’s early in the morning or late at night.

If you’re ordering packaged grocery items outside of Amazon Fresh, you can pick from the standard Amazon delivery options, with the possibility of weekday or weekend delivery, also between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

How Late Can You Receive Amazon Key Deliveries?

Key by Amazon allows you to accept deliveries inside your home, garage, or car for greater peace of mind and convenience. You can receive Amazon Key deliveries from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. as a Prime member.

There is generally a 4-hour delivery window and multiple notifications so you can anticipate your delivery.

If you want to get items by 9 p.m. on the same day, make sure you order in the morning before noon.

Does Amazon Deliver Before 8 A.M?

Does Amazon Deliver Before 8 A.M?

If you’re an early riser and prefer to get your package first thing in the morning before 8 a.m., you can request an early delivery in your account settings.

Overnight by 8 a.m. delivery options allows drivers on the early shift to drop your package off starting at 6 a.m.

Does Amazon Deliver After 8 P.M?

While Amazon delivery estimates say by 8 p.m., you can arrange for later delivery if that suits you. The last Amazon delivery drivers finish at 10 p.m.

Always check the estimated delivery time and additional fees when placing the order.

Additionally, you can add delivery instructions about your time preferences and whether the driver should knock or leave the package in a particular area.

If you are in a city with Amazon Prime same-day delivery for up to three million items, you can order as late as midnight and have your order come before 8 a.m., thanks to overnight and early morning delivery options.

How Can You Update Amazon Delivery Preferences?

You can update your Amazon delivery preferences through your account and your orders.

When purchasing an item, you can select your preferred delivery time and add instructions on how to notify you and where to leave the package.

Under your account addresses, you can add delivery instructions and outline your preferences.

This form has a few sections, including your availability for Saturday and Sunday. Make sure you nominate your address as open for weekend deliveries so you can receive packages between 8 or 9 a.m. and 8 p.m.

As long as weekend delivery is available in your area, then you can get eligible Amazon deliveries on Saturday and Sunday.
