I placed an order on May 4th, all items listed as sold by Amazon, here it is May 9th and they still haven't even shipped yet.

Anyone else seeing this? I've not encountered this with any previous orders and I'm wondering if this has become the new normal at Amazon (in which case I'll start ordering directly from the mfg of these products).

Was it a Kindle you ordered?

did you order something that was on backorder or is on pre-order and selected the ship as cheap as possible option?

Yes, it happens. It can happen if the order was shipped using Super Saver Shipping. It can happen if an item in the order is out of stock and you choose to ship everything together. It can happen if it's a 3rd party seller but fulfilled by Amazon (thus may be out of stock at the moment). It can happen if you choose to ship everything together and the fulfillment center that has most of the items, and will be the one the order ships from, is waiting on the rest of the items to arrive. Etc. The date an order ships never matters. All that matters is the Estimated Delivery Date on your order.

And exactly what was the shipping estimate date on your order? If it is after that date, have you contacted Amazon support? What did they say?

Yes, I've had stock items that the shipping estimate for not for a week or so. Since it is clearly stated on my order, I have the opportunity to cancel should I wish. In ALL cases I did receive the goods prior to the delivery estimate.

In my experience of late, yes, this has become the new normal. It doesn't seem to matter whether which shipping option I choose.

Thanks for the responses, delivery date isn't past, it's the 14th. I just found it curious that after placing countless orders over the years with them that I had never seen an order sit an entire business week and not even leave Amazon that entire time.

If this is in fact the new normal for Amazon I'll adjust my expectations accordingly, no problem. Or as I said, simply order it directly from the mfg who has actual skin in the game when it comes to whether I keep or cancel an order.

P.S. This was not a kindle, just items that are sourced from Amazon not 3rd party and not backordered, hence my surprise it's just sitting there.

Again, thanks everyone for the responses!

Does this have something to do with Kindles?
Did you talk to customer service?

Seeing as this was over a year ago, I think it's pretty safe to say he received his order.

Wow, talk about Zombies!

I ordered "zombie war: an account of the zombie apocalypse that swept across america" and it says it will arrive tomorrow by 8:00pm but it also says :not yet shipped". I'm getting really sick and tired of amazon doing this to me all the time.

This is a Kindle Discussion forum and none of the forums are Customer Service and no one in any of the forums has access to your account to help you - you need to click on the Help link at the top and/or bottom of any Amazon webpage, select Need More Help and then click on Contact Us and talk to Customer Service who might be able to help you (we can't)

You should have a delivery date estimate. Amazon is pretty good about it. If you need it faster pay for the faster shipping.
