Amazon will now confirm package delivery with a picture
Smile, you are on camera!
Amazon has been slowly and quietly pushing a new program over the last couple of months where delivery workers will use pictures to prove that your package has been delivered, and at the right address. The image that the driver takes will be displayed in your delivery confirmation, so Amazon shoppers will know that their package has arrived safely.
There have been numerous stories about packages being lost or stolen, or Amazon shoppers trying to trick the company into sending multiple items. With the new Amazon Logistics Photo On Program, Amazon will be able to track if packages got delivered safely, successfully, and is at the right address.
USA Today claims that the program has been running for the past six months, but it has only been within the past couple of weeks that Amazon has updated driver’s delivery device and app so all drivers can take pictures. Customers can also opt-out of the program if they wish not to have their photos taken. If you want to opt-out, go to “Your Orders,” and select “don’t take delivery photos”.
As of now, the program is only running in Oregon, Las Vegas, Indianapolis, Seattle, San Francisco, and Northern Virginia.
