How to Prevent lost Packages from Amazon

7 how-to-prevent-lost-packages-from-amazon

If you are an Amazon shopper, you may have experienced a lost or stolen package at some point. Though Amazon is diligent about preventing lost parcels, you can still take some steps to protect your packages further. In this article, we will share tips on preventing lost packages from Amazon.

1. Make sure your shipping address is correct

The first and most crucial step is ensuring your shipping address is correct. Although it might seem obvious, many people forget to update their delivery address when they move. Your package may be delivered to the wrong address if your shipping address is erroneous, or worse, it may be returned to Amazon, and you may have to wait even longer for your package.


2. Track your package

Another way to prevent lost packages from Amazon is to track your parcel once it has been shipped. You can do this by a move to the "Your Orders" page on Amazon and selecting the "Track Package" option next to your order. This way, you will know precisely where it is and when it is supposed to be delivered.


3. Choose Two-Day Shipping

If you are worried about losing your package, you can choose the Two-Day Shipping option when you checkout. By doing this, you may track your package at every stage of the delivery process and receive it within two days. However, this option is more expensive than the standard shipping option.


4. Request a signature upon delivery

Another option to help prevent lost packages from Amazon is requesting a signature upon delivery. This means someone must be at the shipping address to sign the parcel. This option does not guarantee that your package will be recovered, but it does make it more difficult for someone to steal it because they would need access to the shipping address to sign for the package.


How to Get a Refund for a Lost Amazon Package

8 how-to-get-a-refund-for-a-lost-amazon-package

The process is straightforward if you're wondering how to get a refund for a lost Amazon package. Amazon has a dedicated team that handles these sorts of claims, and as long as you have your order number, they should be able to process your request without too much trouble.

Of course, there are a few caveats. First and foremost, Amazon's refund policy only covers missing or stolen packages. If your package arrives damaged, you'll need to contact the seller directly to see if they will refund or replace the item. Additionally, Amazon notes that "in some cases," it may take hold of up to two business days for them to investigate your claim, so there may be a bit of a stand-by before you see any money back in your account.

Getting a refund for a lost Amazon package is simple and shouldn't take more than a few minutes. Here's what you need to do:

1. Go to Amazon's main help page and scroll until you see the "Contact Us" section.

2. Click on the "Select an issue" drop-down menu and choose "Orders."

3. Click on the "A different issue not listed" option on the next page.

4. On the next page, enter "My package was stolen" in the description field and click on the "Continue" button.

5. On the next page, enter your order number (you can find this on your receipt or in the order confirmation email Amazon sent you when you placed the order) and then click on the "Continue" button again.

6. From there, follow the instructions on the screen - Amazon will walk you through submitting your claim and deciding how you want them to handle it (refunding your purchase price or replacing the item).



-If you have yet to receive your package, go to The Orders section of your account and click on the missing order. Select Report a problem with this order and fill out the form with all the information listed there.

-If you still have not received your package after it has been reported as missing, please get in touch with customer service by clicking on Live Chat. You will be connected with an agent who can help you discover why your package was not delivered.
