About Same Day (Evening Express) Delivery

When you choose Same-Day (Evening Delivery), items are delivered on the same day you place your order.

Same-Day (Evening Delivery) has no charge for Amazon Prime members, and is charged at a cost of £5.99 per delivery for all eligible items for non-Prime members. Currently, this service is available for selected postcodes and Amazon lockers in the UK. You can check if your postcode is eligible by clicking here. If you are logged in and have selected an eligible address on the product detail page, Same-Day delivery filters will be displayed.

Note: We're unable to offer Same-Day (Evening Delivery) to BFPO and commercial addresses.

Amazon Prime members can use Same-Day (Evening Delivery) in three ways:

  • Choose the Same-Day (Evening Delivery) option at checkout.
  • Look for any item with the "Prime | Same-Day" icon on its detail page.
  • Filter search results by clicking on the Same-Day filter. You can use our Same-Day filter to find eligible items by searching for the item you’d like to order, and then filtering your search results by clicking on the "Prime | Same-Day" filter on the left-hand side of your desktop web browser.

If you're not an Amazon Prime member, you can use our Get it Today filter to find eligible items in your search results.

The Same-Day and Get it Today filters are only active before the Same-Day (Evening Delivery) cut-off deadline if you are logged into Your Account, and have a default address within a Same-Day (Evening Delivery) eligible area.

Qualifying orders must be placed before the deadline displayed on the product detail page and dispatched to an eligible address. If the Same-Day (Evening Delivery) option doesn't appear in checkout, the order isn't eligible for Same-Day (Evening Delivery). Item eligibility is indicated on the product detail page and during checkout.

Same-Day (Evening Delivery) deliveries will be made between 18:00 and 22:00 Monday to Sunday. In some cases, your delivery will require a signature and in such cases, if there's no-one at home when the delivery attempt is made, delivery will automatically be attempted again over each of the next three days. If the delivery is not completed within this time, you'll receive an email requesting additional delivery instructions or an alternative delivery address. If a response is not received within 48 hours, your parcel will be returned to Amazon, where a full refund will be issued. See our Help page for information on how to set your unattended delivery preference which allows you to tell us what you'd like to happen to your parcel if you're not at home to receive it.

Same-Day (Evening Delivery) is available most days from midnight until the order deadline displayed on the product detail page. The deadline for Same-Day (Evening Delivery) is 12.00 (noon) most days of the year. On certain holidays and busy shopping days, the order deadline may be earlier than 12.00.

In some cases, choosing a higher quantity for an item may make it ineligible for Same-Day (Evening Delivery), because multiple units may not be available locally. In this case, the option to choose Same-Day (Evening Delivery) will disappear, and other delivery options will display.
