Amazon today announced the launch of Counter, a new pickup service that allows you to pick up your packages from locations nearby like convenience stores and pharmacies. Today, more than a hundred Counter locations are open across the U.S., Amazon will add thousands of additional locations in the coming months.
Counter will work with Same-Day, One-Day, Two-Day and Standard Shipping. There is no additional cost to use a Counter. If you’re not able to pick up your package within this 14 calendar days, package will be returned for a refund.
Here’s how Amazon Counter will work:
- Shipping to a Counter pickup point is easy and secure. After shopping on Amazon.com, customers proceed to checkout and select one of the Counter pickup points available in their zip code as their delivery location.
- As soon as their package arrives at the store, customers receive an e-mail notification with a unique barcode as well as a reminder of the address and the business hours of their selected store.
- At the store, customers provide the barcode to store staff, who will scan it, retrieve the package, and hand it to the customer.
