Amazon is on the Cusp of Perfecting Delivery
Amazon is one of the few retailers who deliver your products to your doorstep as quickly as same day. The online giant is currently in the works to create a delivery method where your packages can be delivered inside your home or even into your car.
Delivery Right to Your Trunk
Amazon is currently in talks with Phrame, a company that makes smart license plates. The two are negotiating a method in which the online retail mogul can deliver packages right to a customer’s trunk. This method can help customers avoid having packages delivered to their home, left on their doorstep and exposed to all kinds of risks.
How Innovative Delivery Methods Can Benefit Third Party Sellers
Unattended delivery is a big problem for Amazon and also third-party sellers on Amazon. The new innovative methods Amazon is currently working on can help third-party sellers avoid unexpected or unnecessary losses from lost or stolen packages. Packages that are left unattended can also become damaged if there the weather is bad, causing the customer to return their purchase. Regardless of why the delivery issue occurred, each reason can cause the seller to experience losses and incur unnecessary or unforeseen costs.
Since the impact of a failed delivery has a significant negative impact on a seller, new innovative delivery methods can mean great benefits for Amazon and even their third-party sellers. Failed or missed deliveries can make a customer feel a company is unreliable and thus lead to a bad reputation. If Amazon is able to create a new way to satisfy customer’s quick delivery needs while ensuring their packages will be safe, it will undoubtedly make customers happy. With customer satisfaction, sellers are more likely to see customers return and, thus, increase their profits.
As these new delivery methods continue, more information should become available. If you have any questions about this new delivery methods and any financial implications it may have on you as a third-party seller, you should contact an experienced accountant.
