Who can deliver for Amazon Flex?
We are looking for Delivery Partners who are at least 18 years old with a valid UK driving licence and a vehicle. You will need to be entitled to work in the UK and pass a background and criminal record check which includes, but is not limited to, a review of driving licence records. Current Amazon employees are not eligible to be Delivery Partners.
What do I need to make deliveries?
You will need a vehicle and an Android or iOS phone. We'll provide access to the app and opportunities to deliver.
Can I deliver by foot, bicycle, or scooter?
Currently, a 4-door car, van, or scooter (with trunks) are the only delivery options. But in the future we may offer opportunities to deliver by foot, bicycle, 2-door cars, and other modes of transportation. Check back often and sign up when your preferred delivery mode is added.
Do I have to pay taxes as a Flex driver?
Is Amazon Flex a full-time work opportunity?
No, Amazon Flex provides a flexible opportunity for Delivery Partners looking to turn free time into supplementary income. The available delivery blocks may fluctuate week to week and are not guaranteed.
How long are the blocks and how many blocks can I schedule per week?
Blocks vary in length, from 1 to 4 hours, depending on the delivery service you support. For example, 1- and 2-hour blocks are available for Prime Now deliveries, where customer addresses are closer to the delivery station you collect parcels from. However, for Same Day and One Day parcels, the area served by a delivery station is larger, and therefore travelling time to customer addresses is longer. In those cases, it's not feasible to have 1- or 2-hour blocks, and the available blocks can be 4 hours. Amazon Flex is a great way to earn money delivering when you want. You can choose any available blocks of time to work the same day, or set your availability for the future. Future blocks are allocated randomly, based on expected volume and availability of Delivery Partners.
What are earnings estimates based on?
Earnings estimates are based on delivering a number of parcels across an estimated length of time (referred to as a block). We aim to ensure that the number of parcels you are assigned to deliver within your block is realistic, taking into account traffic congestion and the primary requirement to drive safely. However, the actual time taken per delivery may vary (because it could, occasionally, take less time or a little more time than expected) so the earnings per hour may vary.
Do I need an Amazon account?
Yes, you'll need an Amazon account, but if you don't have one (or want to use a new one) you can create one when you sign up.
