Next Day Delivery - Myths & Facts

It seems as if Amazon, the online megastore, is being unfair to you. Both you and your friend ordered the same item on the same day. However, your friend received delivery of his order on the next day, whereas the email from Amazon to you informs that you should expect delivery of the goods after 4-5 working days. On the one hand, you can rest assured that such a huge online marketing behemoth will never do such injustice with its clients. Chances are bright that your friend has paid more to Amazon for expedited delivery or is a "prime" member of Amazon. You too can receive goods on the same day (providing you have ordered it in the morning) or on the next day by becoming a prime member of Amazon. Visit the website of Amazon to find out the terms and conditions for this special membership. Normally, they charge £79 for one year of prime membership. However, they are currently offering a special discount promotion through which you can avail of prime membership for 12 months for just £59.

Beat your friend

Although this membership allows you to get your goods on the same or on the next day, you can up the ante on your friend, by opting for their "prime now" service. This helps you to get goods within 1-2 hours of ordering them. Make sure that your purchases are eligible for this offer. Only select items that have the "prime" logo underneath or beside it. Alternatively, you can click on the checkbox next to "prime" in the left hand search parameters panel to ensure that you are only shown items in the "prime" category. Many of you might be wondering of how the personnel of this gargantuan online store manage their logistics. They stock all goods in a warehouse close to the city. They first sort the goods by category, then by manufacturer, and finally place them on vertical shelves with the help of a hyster forklift. For the uninitiated, Hyster is one of UK's leading manufacturer of forklifts and other equipment required in a warehouse such as "pallet stackers," "pallet trucks," "high capacity forklift trucks," "3 wheel electric forklifts," and much more. This equipment makes it easy for the staff of the warehouse to put goods on the shelves or remove them from it.
