Wondering how to change the delivery date on Amazon?

All you have to do is go to Your Orders, find the order you want to reschedule, then click Reschedule.

However, these steps only work under certain conditions, so I created this guide to help you understand the whole process.

Keep reading to learn how to change your Amazon delivery date and your other options.

Let’s begin.

How To Change the Delivery Date on Amazon: Step-by-Step

Step 1- Check the Order Status.

First, check your order status to ensure you can still change your scheduled delivery date. Your order must meet the following conditions:

  • Your item has shipped.
  • You assigned an original delivery date and schedule during the checkout process.

To check if your order is on the way, track your order using these steps:

  1. Log into your account on the Amazon website.
  2. Click the Account & Lists button and select Orders to see your order details.
  3. Search for the order you want to track.
  4. Select Track Package.

If your order still hasn’t shipped, proceed to Step 2.

Step 2- Reschedule Your Delivery.

  1. From Your Orders, locate the order you want to reschedule.
  2. Click Reschedule.
  3. Select a new delivery day and time on the pop-up calendar.
  4. Click Confirm.

What if there’s no Reschedule option?

Proceed to Step 3.

Step 3- Contact the Amazon Customer Service.

If your order hasn’t shipped yet or you didn’t have an original delivery schedule, you won’t see the Reschedule option in your order.

Amazon instead requires you to contact their customer service to see your options.

Here’s how to contact Amazon customer service:

1- Visit the Contact Us page and click the Something Else option.

5- If successful, you should be able to see the changes reflected in your order status.

How Does Amazon Scheduled Delivery Work?

Amazon Scheduled Delivery allows you to select a specific delivery date and time for large and bulky items. It doesn’t necessarily make your orders arrive faster, but more predictable.

A carrier from the Amazon Transportation Services (ATS) will handle your order.

Note: Not all orders are available for scheduled delivery.

If available, you can designate a delivery date and time during checkout, where you can choose or change shipping methods.

Otherwise, you’ll only have to rely on Amazon’s estimated time for its shipping options. You can select your desired shipping speed and shipping method at checkout to ensure you get your package when convenient.

Tip: You can also change your shipping speed on Amazon later.

How To Change Subscribe & Save Delivery Dayword image 45623 7

If you have a Subscribe & Save subscription, Amazon will automatically deliver your order at your specified address at a specific day each month or as otherwise scheduled.

If you want to change the monthly delivery date, here’s how to do it:

  1. Go to the Subscribe & Save manager.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Select a new delivery day below Monthly/Weekly subscriptions.
  4. Click Confirm.

Your new delivery date will take effect in your next schedule.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can You Schedule a Delivery on Amazon?

Yes, you can schedule delivery dates for eligible items. If this delivery option is available, you can select a day and time on a pop-up calendar to control when your package arrives.

This option should also be available on the Amazon app.

Can You Cancel an Amazon Delivery?

Yes, you can, as long as your Amazon order hasn’t shipped. Orders shipped are already on the way to you, so you’re unable to cancel them.

If this option is available for you, here’s how to cancel your orders:

  1. Log into your Amazon account.
  2. Go to Your Orders.
  3. Select the item or the entire order to cancel.
  4. Choose a reason for the cancellation.
  5. Click Cancel selected items in this order to confirm.

How Long Do Amazon Sellers Have To Ship?

As per Amazon’s shipping process, sellers must ship their orders within two business days from the time the sellers receive their order notification.

For example, an American seller receives an order notification on Friday of this week.

In that case, he or she should have finished the process of preparing, labeling, packaging, and having the assigned courier company pick up the item for shipment by the end of Tuesday the following week (note Saturday and Sunday are not counted as business days).

Take note that buyers, in this case, don’t necessarily receive the item within two business days.

The two-day standard here refers ultimately to the period between online purchase and loading items for shipment, not the timeframe from the said purchase to doorstep delivery.

Can Amazon Buyers Receive Their Orders Within 2 days?

Yes. Amazon Prime orders come with a free Two-Day Shipping guarantee. With this method, an order shipped today can be delivered the next day.

However, buyers in a different country don’t have access to this perk.

The Bottom Line

The process regarding how to change delivery date on Amazon is quite simple.

However, it’s crucial to know the shipping details of your product before ordering, especially if you want the option of modifying your item’s scheduled delivery time and day EVEN AFTER you placed your order.

Hopefully, through all the information I’ve laid out in this article, you’ll be able to handle the sticky (and sometimes embarrassing) situation of having to change your scheduled delivery date due to mistakes or sudden change of plans.

  1. Good day,
    We are seniors and are currently receiving Amazon Prime on the one month free trial offer that expires in mid April. We have only used Amazon’s free shipping on about 5 items and do not require all the other options available for the regular monthly charge when our one month free offer ends. Is there any reduced rate similar to the reduced seniors senior offer for a monthly fee that only uses the free shipping on a limited number of items ordered per month. Thanks.
