A counter for Amazon Hub — an in-store delivery and returns center operated by the company —has rolled out at over 300 places throughout the United States, with more coming soon. Whether you order from Amazon frequently or have simply heard of the concept but don’t quite understand what it means, the Hub counter can make your life easier, especially if you’re buying things from Amazon regularly. Here’s everything you need to know about how this service works and why you might want to use it. In this article, we will explore the overview of Amazon Hub Counter
What Is the Amazon Hub Counter?
The Amazon Hub Counter is a new service that provides customers with a centralized location to pick up their Amazon packages, as well as return them. The Hub Counter also offers convenience items like food, beauty products, and more. You can access the Hub Counter on both Amazon’s website and mobile app; simply click on Pick up now or Ship To in the navigation menu, select your preferred pickup date or date of shipment, then you will see the available locations where you can receive your package. You can also download the free app from Google Play or App Store to see all the available locations at your fingertips.
What are the benefits of using the Amazon Hub Counter?
There are many benefits of making use of the Amazon Hub Counter. For starters, it’s convenient to have a package delivered right to your doorstep or work desk. You can also schedule a pick-up with the hub counter if you need to send something back. Also, because the packages come from Amazon, they’re guaranteed so there’s no risk of getting stuck with an expensive broken product. Another great benefit is that you don’t have to worry about running out of room in your car because Amazon will deliver to the nearest hub in their network instead of your home address.
How Much Does It Cost?
For Prime members, the service is free. Otherwise, it costs $4.99 per package sent or returns made. You can also bring your items to the counter without paying, but this is only if you have an order that is eligible for in-store pickup. With no price markup, customers who choose not to use this service will still pay less than the retail price at many stores like Target, Walmart, Best Buy, etc. The cost of shipping was reduced from $3.99 to $2.98 on November 27th of 2018 so now there are more options for cheaper shipping too!
How Do I Get Started?
Starting at the Amazon Hub counter is easy. Simply bring an email confirming your order, a photo ID (if you live in an area where you need to show ID), and a completed packing slip. The packing slip can be found in the shipment notification email or on the packing slip in your box. If it’s not in either of those places, please contact us so we can print one for you! You’ll need to present your photo ID with this form too. Once everything has been verified, we’ll get you checked out and all set up with the materials needed for returning packages — and if there are any issues with your order that were brought up by our associates during checkout, we can address them right away. After that process is done, you’re all set!
