Amazon Package Not Delivered? You Can Count on DoNotPay for Help

If you’re frustrated because your Amazon package hasn’t been delivered yet, don’t worry—DoNotPay is here with a simple solution! You can forget all about dealing with customer support and filing return claims because you can now get a refund or a return in just a few clicks.

Our easy-to-read guide will teach you what Amazon’s delivery policy is and how to submit a claim in a flash.

How To Track a Package You Ordered on Amazon

The first step in solving your issue with a package that hasn’t arrived is to track it down. Once Amazon ships your order, you will get a unique identifier via email that’s assigned to your package. As it moves through destinations, the ID will be scanned, giving you real-time feedback on where your item is.

To track your package, you will have to:

  1. Sign in to your Amazon account
  2. Go to Your Orders
  3. Select the order you want to track
  4. Click on Track Package

If 48 hours have passed after the expected delivery time and the package still isn’t at your front door, follow the next steps:

  1. Verify your shipping address
  2. Search for a notice of attempted delivery
  3. Check if someone else accepted the delivery in your stead

If none of the above seems to help, you should consider asking for a refund.

What Are the Reasons My Amazon Package Never Arrived?

If you’re wondering why your Amazon package hasn’t been delivered yet, here are some of the probable reasons:

Third-party seller delivery timesIn case you ordered an item from an Amazon reseller, you can expect a late delivery because the delivery isn’t fulfilled by Amazon. If you don’t receive the package on time, you should contact the seller by clicking on Contact Seller on the Order Detail page
COVID-19Due to the outbreak of the pandemic, Amazon had to start prioritizing items like medical supplies, household items, and similar. This led to more orders than ever staying in the Pending status
Natural eventsHurricanes, tornadoes, and power outages are what may prevent Amazon packages from being delivered on time. If you live in an area that’s been hit by a natural catastrophe recently, Amazon says that you should wait for two or three business days extra on top of your estimated delivery date

In case your order status says Delivered but you didn’t receive your order, there’s a chance that the courier will return the package to Amazon. Here are some reasons why this might occur:

Transportation problemsIf there are any problems during the sorting process or if the label is damaged, the delivery could fail
Refused deliveryIf there was someone at your address who wasn’t expecting the package, they might have refused the delivery
Insecure locationThe courier won’t leave the package at your location if it’s facing bad weather
Incorrect addressYou won’t get your package if you’ve mistakenly entered the wrong address
Small P.O. boxThe courier won’t deliver your package if it doesn’t fit the P.O. box
Accessibility issuesYour package might not get delivered if the courier can’t access your house due to a buzzer or security gate
