Amazon Is Trying To Put Deliveries In The Trunk Of Your Car

Amazon Is Trying To Put Deliveries In The Trunk Of Your Car

Walmart says it will reach more than 40 percent of USA households via its expansion this year, but it was only offering delivery in six markets as of March.

"Partnering with Amazon to leverage our embedded in-vehicle connectivity gives Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac owners the option to conveniently receive deliveries inside their vehicle parked at home, work or near other locations in their Amazon address book", Alan Batey, President of GM in North America, said in the release. They will also have to install the Amazon Key App on their smartphone and, as mentioned, have a vehicle that can be remotely unlocked by the appropriate service.

Amazon Prime members can now have their Amazon orders delivered directly into their vehicle through Amazon Key, the company announced in a Tuesday press release. The service is also available in 2015 or newer model Volvos to drivers who have an active Volvo On Call account. Visit the Volvo On Call website to learn more.

"Amazon has a voracious appetite for people's information, and this is one more example of its breathless rush to grab every piece of data and turn it into new forms of revenue", said Jeffrey Chester, executive director of the Center for Digital Democracy, a Washington nonprofit.

This new service is available to Amazon Prime members and is connected to the Amazon Key service that the company recently launched.

Customers won't be able to get in-car deliveries if they park inside gated and underground parking garages where satellite signals often can't penetrate. Early on, it was free two-day shipping for people who pay a monthly or yearly Prime subscription. It doesn't matter whether you pick Same Day, Two-Day or Standard Shipping; all items will be able to be dropped off to your vehicle.

Riyad Mansour calls to set up independent commission to investigate Israeli crimes
Several thousand Palestinians participated in the protests Friday, the fourth large-scale demonstrations since late March. Israel's use of live fire has drawn worldwide criticism and Ayoub's death received special attention.

Amazon's popping up everywhere, even in the back seat of your vehicle.

Well, now your auto trunk can be a safe and convenient delivery option.

Customers choose in-car drop off when placing the order and the they receive an alert on their app the morning of delivery, providing a four-hour window.

The cars must be parked in a publicly accessible location in order to receive packages, which will be placed either in the trunk or inside the vehicle itself. On the day your delivery is due, you'll have to ensure that your vehicle is parked within a specified range of your property, more of which can be found in the Key app.

Not satisfied with dropping off parcels inside your home, Amazon can now deliver packages to the trunk of your auto. "Letting a stranger put your purchases into the trunk of your vehicle also takes a fair bit of trust - but less so".

Last week, I purchased a pack of D batteries on Amazon.com for $10.65.
