Before getting into the tutorial and find out how to enter an Amazon Locker address, it is my duty to provide you with more information on the service in question.
As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, Amazon Locker is a service made available by the giant for e-commerce, thanks to which it is possible to have the goods purchased delivered to a self-service collection point nearby, rather than at home.
Similarly to what happens in the case of home delivery, the package is tracked. Furthermore, i times for delivery they are similar to those needed to deliver the goods at home. After delivery, the items can be collected within three days.
Note that the service it does not present any cost of use and activation, but is only suitable for items shipped directly from Amazon and for packages of maximum dimensions equal to 42 x 35 x 32 cm maximum weight of 4,5 Kg.
Once the package has been delivered to an Amazon Locker point, to be able to collect it, simply go to the site with the unique code received via email and type it through the appropriate touch monitor. Alternatively, you can use the barcode, always received by e-mail, scanned on the spot. Once this is done, the compartment containing the goods will open, which can then be finally picked up.
For further information, I invite you to refer to my guide focused specifically on how Amazon Locker works and to the appropriate informative web page that you find on the Amazon website.
