Why is Amazon sooooo slooooow?

Every time I order directly from Amazon, it takes FOREVER to ship, but it usually ships within two business days from one of the sellers on Amazon.

  • I ordered on Thursday and got it yesterday, and it was shipped US Mail, which usually takes longer!

  • That's strange, it's just the opposite for me. I always get Amazon merchandise quicker than their sellers.

  • Are you a Prime member? I order most of my work supplies and home needs on Amazon and if they are in stock they ship the same day and with free two day shipping and no tax I can't see a better way.

  • Hmm, everything I order directly from Amazon is here within 4 days, and I always pick the slowest/lowest price shipping.

  • Never had a problem with them as far as shipping speed.

  • Love amazon and never had a problem with shipping. Anytime I order something it was shipped that night or the next day and I got everything but the end of the week.

  • It's starting to annoy me. I placed my order Friday and it still hasn't shipped, but everything from the other sellers has. I'm used to them being slow, but it's usually only a day or so longer than the other sellers. I should be getting most of the rest of my order tomorrow and Friday. Grr. Maybe it's a fluke or something.
