Has anyone used the Amazon Locker service in the Boulevard and how easy was it to use?

I'm forever ordering bits and bobs from Amazon but get fed up waiting in for delivery.

Never used one in Spain, but the ones in the UK are very easy to use. They send you a code and you punch it in and your locker opens.

Some items can’t be delivered to a locker as they are too big, but it tells you that when  you choose the delivery location.

Pete.

Thanks Pete, I might give it a try next time we order something from Amazon.

We have never used the lockers in the UK, but it sounds simple enough. 🙂

If you're not ordering large or heavy items, use the option for delivery to be to a post office. That's what I've been doing for a good while, and it works a treat.

In your amazon.es account, pick a locker near you and set it up as a delivery address.

When you make your order, select the locker. When amazon deliver to the locker, they send you a code. You just go to the locker, enter the code, and a door opens for you.

The code is time-limited. Usually 3 days.

amazon UK won't deliver to a Spanish locker. It has to be amazon.es.

Only orders fulfilled by amazon themselves can be directed to the lockers. Third parties can't use them.

As Kelvin says, delivery options do depend on the order being supplied by Amazon.

If you opt for delivery to a post office, then you have two weeks to collect.

We have up to now just used Amazon UK, understand that it's only Amazon es and any orders fulfilled by Amazon rather than individual sellers.

Thanks for info about timescales.
