Amazon Logistics taking proof of delivery photos
Amazon Logistics in the UK is now taking proof of delivery photos for parcels that are left unattended.
In a notice posted on its UK website, the online retailer said: “Amazon Logistics (AMZL) may take a photo on delivery when a package is left unattended.
“Capturing delivery photos is intended to help customers see that their package was safely delivered and where.
“The photo will focus on the placement of the package.
“If a photo on delivery is captured, it may show up when you track a package from Your Orders.”
The notice said that the Amazon customer will have to sign in with their user name and password to access a delivery photo (if it is available), and added that “Customer Service may look at delivery photos to troubleshoot what happened to a package if you contact us or report a problem with the photo”.
For orders shipped to an address marked confidential, such as a Wish List or Registry address, Amazon won’t post a delivery photo on the order in order to protect the privacy of the recipient.
Users can opt out of Amazon’s Photo on Delivery service.
A number of UK parcel delivery companies have been taking proof of delivery photos for some time now.
