Amazon customers select the locker location as their shipping address and receive a digital pickup code via email or text message. You can retrieve your order at that location within 3 days by entering the pickup code on the locker's touch screen.
* Please note some Amazon third-party distributors use other shipping services such as FedEx and UPS that require a signature, so they may not be able to ship to the locker or the locker may not be available to use when attempting delivery, in which case you will have to wait for the space to become available. For short stays, please be careful about the time it takes to receive your order!
