Amazon’s standard shipping will typically deliver packages in 3 to 5 business days.

It’s what they are known for. If you are a Prime member of Amazon, you guaranteed to get packages that are labeled as “Prime” in 2 days.

Yet sometimes 2 to 5 days is too long, especially with the holidays approaching. If it’s business days, the package can take at least a week to arrive at your home. That can be too long if you need the package in a day.

This is why Amazon’s expedited shipping option gives shoppers the flexibility to shop last minute. It gives the option to select a gift they day before they need it so it can arrive on time.

If you’re a last-minute shopper, Amazon expedited shipping gives you more options with shipping of 1-3 business days instead of 3-5 business days. In fact, you’ll find that Amazon’s expedited avoids a lot of the issues that personal sellers or other sites have when it comes to expedited shipping.  There are a lot of reasons why people are choosing Amazon’s expedited shipping option, and it’s time to discover the benefits of why they are choosing this option.

Depending on the price of the package, a seller can expedite it with a courier service to ensure it arrives within 1 to 2 business days. Some items will need to be sold at a price higher than $25 in order for it to meet the expedite requirements of couriers.

For sellers, they will often find that they expedite items that are priced lower than $25, but it will cost more in shipping to the buyer. It’s important to see how pricing your items effects shipping for the buyer because it can change a buyer’s decision on if they should purchase your item or not.
