How to use Locker Click and Collect.
1. If you are already an Amazon customer, log in with your regular username and password. If you are not an Amazon customer, register using your name, e-mail, home or work address, and a method of payment. Confirm you account by clicking on the confirmation link that will be sent to you by email to the same address that you entered at the time of registration.
2. Click on “Your Account”, and select “Manage Addresses and One-Click settings.” Ensure that the address that you entered on file is correct, and that the payment method that you want to use for quick checkouts, “one-click”, is also selected. Going through this step is important because it will help prevent errors with shipping or charging for items.
3. Locate the “Amazon Locker” option on the page. Select the locker location nearest you and add it to your address book. If you have not done so, sign up for a locker. Once you do, you will receive a unique locker number and important information by e-mail that will be only available to you. You will receive a code that will give you access to your locker. Whenever your items are shipped, you will have three business days to visit the store, use the code to open your locker, and collect your items. Please keep your codes safe and do not share them.
4. After setting up and confirming your information, you proceed to log in to Amazon.co.uk. After selecting your purchases, use the option “dispatch to this address”. This is how you will route the items to your Amazon locker once they are shipped to you. You can also use the “dispatch to this address” option for returning items.
