Amazon shipping status “Shipping Now” Preparing shipping

Don’t worry folks. A lot of people worries about their items purchased from amazon will not shipped or delivered as promised. For instant, you might place an order for free shipping or whatever shipping method you have, and you see a date range giving on when your products will arrive. It could be 1-2 weeks. However you’re seeing the status of preparing shipping, or shipping now, and you the estimated delivery only a couple days away. Don’t worry, it will get delivered before or on that date 99% of the time, unless some issue with shipping company.

In other word. Let say you place an order on May 1st, 2014. The free shipping indicated that you will get it on May 5th to May 10th. Chances are, 50% of the orders will delivered to you on May 5th, the other 25% on May 7th, and the other 24% will delivered on May 9th, and 1% will get delivered on May 10th or longer.

Basically don’t worry, Amazon is an internet company. They have high tech equipment and system to monitor shipping orders status and so on. What might have happen is you ordered items sold by Amazon and also third party sellers. Sometime the third party sellers ship it directly to you, but for some other sellers they ship the items to Amazon, then Amazon combined with other items sold by Amazon and ship it to you at the same time. Consolidation shipments so call, that’s why you get free shipping discount. It’s all good.

So the next time you worries, just look at the estimated delivery date and always take the last date delivered by as your delivery date, however 50% of time you will get it sooner, but better to go with last date. Let say May 1st to May 10th, take May 10th to be safe 🙂
