  • Yeah, I would say that the vans that I get to see in Dublin are also filled 75% or maybe even more with Amazon boxes. It seems though that they have not ramped up enough to meet the demand and appear confident that even without Amazon there will still be enough deliveries to keep everyone's job.




  • We are doing up the house at the moment and are buying a lot of stuff from Amazon. I mean a lot. The postman is annoyed genarally with the amount of Amazon stuff he has to deal with and I think annoyed with me too. First few times he was jokey about the amount I was ordering but no quips from him lately.

    Have had three packages now in last week delayed so far as Amazon offered refund.

    These were all dispatched by amazon coming through the Merseyside depo but not arriving anywhere after they leave there. My daughter has another two that will be eligible for a refund tomorrow, they also seem to have disappeared after the Merseyside depo.

    What’s the story with this. Is this just volume overload or what.

    Am unsure what to do now, do I reorder, do I source elsewhere.

    What are the chances these will turn up over next few weeks anyway ??

    They'll turn up I got refunded for 3 and 2 and arrived today and yesterday.

    Not your problem- tell him to take it up with his boss if he doesn't like his job.




  • It looks that, if only Amazon maintain their growing commitment to the Irish market in spite of Brexit, Anpost are going to be gradually relieved by them from deliveries on the most profitable routes. Huge opportunity lost it I suppose. But hey, whenever I talk to Anpost employees they only seem frustrated having to handle Amazon parcels.

    I've heard An Post employees in the sorting office complaining about Amazon parcels. I suppose unlike with couriers, losing their biggest customer will just mean less work rather than job losses.

    I was talking to our postman abkut this last week, I was saying we have few more to come.

    He’s delighted with the amazon business. He said they were talking of making larger routes and less postmen but the amazon business has saved them.

    He’s a pragmatic individual, we live down a long lane, 400m off the road. I said to him before not to be bothering coming down if it’s just flyers. He said no, he’s glad to have them to deliver and they keep the show on the road.

    He gets a bottle of whiskey and €50 at Christmas.

    We aren't as generous the postman gets €20 at Christmas but he only has to deliver to the gate.

    Wake me up when it's all over.

    Ahh he’s a great lad, good service. He will open the door and leave parcels on the hall table if we’re not about, text or ring me. . He will stand and chat for a while. .




  • They're working long hours, got a delivery last night and just had another now....7.50pm on a Sunday night.




  • Yea, got a package myself last night around 7. Have to say the 2 day prime ship is great especially if its been delivered by Amazon this end. I ordered ear pods Friday night and had them last night.

    I know An post are ok delivering amazon stuff but you would never get a Sunday Delivery.

    Its a disgrace Joe!

  • Ordered items on Saturday,notification on Sunday as posted and arrived today ahead of schedule as was expecting it Tuesday WOW.




  • Ordered a book yesterday about 3pm, was delivered 1pm today.




  • They’ve just sent me another parcel with Asendia :eek: supposed to arrive on the 24th, we’ll see. My previous Asendia parcel was dispatched on the 6th and due today, no sign of it as expected, getting ridiculous now.

    Not all over the country, our postman only comes around in the van Mon-Fri.

    Its up to the individual areas. My postman started doing Saturdays (West Waterford area) two weeks back. But he told me some areas had started earlier.

    I can't see him doing a Sunday as well. The idea is to get parcels cleared so thats all they do 9-12 Saturday morning. He thinks its great as he gets good money for the hours and it takes the pressure off Mondays when there is normally a build up of stuff thats arrived over the weekend.

    Wake me up when it's all over.





  • Amazon have now put Euro pricing up on their website.

    They seem to be doing Next Day Delivery on some items too.




  • 2 items I ordered yesterday both due tomorrow, however in last hour tracking changed to out for delivery today. One item just arrived (in a taxi, Nightline) one more due. Both said delivery by Amazon.

    Seem the EUR pricing is indicative, not sure if that is new in settings or not?

    I noticed for the first time a few days before Grahamer72 posted about it. Don't think it was there a week ago?

  • An attempt to sway more customers into using their lousy currency conversion.




  • An attempt to sway more customers into using their lousy currency conversion.

    The euro prices are actually accurate, you still pay in GBP at the checkout.




  • Indeed. They now separate the conversion fee as "exchange rate guarantee fee" on the payment screen. Not sure for how long that's been going on, as I pay exclusively in GBP on the uk site to avoid that fee.




  • Not all over the country, our postman only comes around in the van Mon-Fri.

    They seem to so flat out that they have to hire vans from Enterprise.
    The amazon operation doesn't seem very efficient as I've twice had two deliveries by separate drivers on the same day.




  • 2nd item just arrived there, delivered by Amazon. Both items a day early so basically one day shipping.

    Ive a funny feeling most of Dublin will eventully get one day shipping when this place in Greenouge gets in to full swing.

    Its a disgrace Joe!





  • Last two have been with AMZL, seems like they're probably taking up more and more of the Dub capacity.

  • Forgot to mention that the vans delivering for amazon have "Parcel King" on them.
