Amazon Locker is self-service lockers that offer platform users the possibility of collecting their orders with total autonomy.
In other words, it is a locker service where anyone can safely pick up their Amazon packages.
At the time that suits them best.
Without having to be aware of being anywhere for when the delivery person arrives.
Lockers usually locate in service stations, pizza restaurants, shopping centers, DIA supermarkets, storage rooms, etc.
In this way, we will prevent the delivery person from going to our home or shipping address and finding that there is no one to pick up the package.
Finally, we have to be the ones to pick it up from the transport agency, for example.
Also, Amazon Lockers offer long service hours.
They do not require us to wait in queues until we can pick up our package, and it is a free service for Amazon Prime members.
