The internet revolutionized the way we shop. Online shopping makes life more convenient. More and more people these days prefer buying things online rather than the conventional way of going into shops.
Shopping online gives you cheaper deals and better deals since the products come to you directly from the seller or manufacturer. Many online shops also offer discount coupons and rebates. One of the largest and most popular shopping websites worldwide is Amazon.
The choices you can find on Amazon is amazing. You can find gift easier with fewer expenses. From books to posters to rare finds, Amazon has it all. However, not all people have great experiences purchasing stuff online. There were items that went missing in action after the delivery man drops their items on the door.
No More Lost Shipments
Most people, at some point, have had to play detective when the item they ordered online just went missing. Although it is stressful at most times, losing the items you paid for using your hard-earned money may just be a thing of the past, thanks to the trial that the online retail giant is rolling out.
To avoid packages going AWOL, Amazon recently completed their Amazon Logistics Photo On Delivery programme in the United States and will be carried out in the United Kingdom soon.
How Does It Work?
The delivery driver would need to take a photo of your front door to help you find the packages easier. This initiate came after the online company bought smart doorbell company ring, a company that records footages of front doors, for a staggering £700 million.
The online retail giant updated its delivery device and app being used by their delivery personnel. All logistics drivers can now take photos of your home. These photos are loaded onto the Amazon server and drivers and deliverymen don’t have access to them.

Once the package arrives, the customer will receive a photo along with a notice of delivery. That notice includes a photo of your door with the package lying on the floor.
If you think it is invading your privacy already or adding the photos is a little too much, you can opt to have this additional service removed from the Amazon’s website.
On the “Your Orders” section, simply click “Don’t take delivery photos.”
No more lost packages, yes to happy purchases. Do you think this new service from Amazon is good?
