Re: Amazon Purchases

I just noticed there is an Amazon Locker in Waldshut.

https://www.amazon.de/amazon-locker/s?k=amazon+locker

I am happy to save the fees charged by the package shops.

A further tip to save on these fees would be merely to ensure shipping is done with a particular carrier and is sent to one of that carrier's pick up points.
If you send Hermes parcels to a Hermes point, a DPD parcel to a DPD pick up point etc. you don't pay the packet shop charges anyway.

Anything sent by ordinary Deutsche Post or more specifically DHL, for stuff that's larger/heavier than the category 'large letter' can be sent to and picked up free of charge from nearly all Deutsche Post/DHL outlets.

The best way is to enquire with the seller/sender in advance and make sure you are registered with the carrier in question. If everyone did this there would be no reason for any of these packet shops or their fees!

When you pick up a Swiss parcel from an alternative delivery point in Switzerland, you don't pay anything, so I don't see why one should have to pay for this exact same service in Germany.

Re: Amazon Purchases

With the Swiss Post saying they are not serving all countries for the time being, I would like to know if anyone has purchased and received items from Amazon.de recently?

Thanks!

Re: Amazon Purchases

Also yes, a purchase from amazon.de last Friday, arrived yesterday. And a purchase from amazon.de on Monday, arrived today.

Both delivered by our local postal chap, who handed the parcels and our mail over at arms length.



We have however put a brake on our amazon purchases - figuring that its not really fair to have someone driving up our mountain to deliver things that aren't essential right now (so for us, no more movies or gadgets etc, just our usual meds)
