Anyone bought alcohol from Amazon?

Posted 27th Sep
I bought a bottle of whiskey from Amazon and it stated on the item that the driver will ask for a signature and ID. Anyone bought alcohol and confirm whether they do this in practice?

I may not be at home when the driver comes and they normally leave the item in the porch. But if they need a signature and ID they won't do this so I would have to wait in for them.

They didn't used to bother, but last couple of weeks they seem to have clamped down. Taking DOB off my driving license and punching it into their phone then getting signature

Have you checked Amazon?

Anyway , FYI

"If Amazon can't deliver your parcel on the first attempt, delivery will automatically be re-attempted for up to four more times. You can select a date for redelivery by clicking on the Track Package button beside the relevant order, in Your Orders. If your order is eligible for redelivery, you’ll be able to click the ‘Request reschedule’ link. If Amazon is unable to successfully deliver the parcel, it will then be returned to our Fulfilment Centre and a refund will be processed to your payment card. "

And

"Note: Certain items available on Amazon.co.uk are age restricted. By placing an order for one of these items you are declaring that you are 18 years of age or over. Valid photographic ID and a signature of the recipient will be required upon delivery. It is not possible to request that Amazon leave these items at a neighbour’s address or in a safe-location and they can't be delivered to a locker or Pickup point. If your order is being delivered to a commercial address or residential apartment block, the receptionist, concierge or mail room attendant receiving your parcel will need to provide a valid ID, showing they are aged 18 or over. If they can’t, the parcel will be returned to Amazon for re-delivery the following day. All information we receive about customers is treated in accordance with our Privacy Notice."

rescheduled delivery. cheers guys
Both times they've delivered alcohol to me the driver has asked for my full name and dob. As I'm obviously over 18 (65 in fact) they didn't ask for proof. Told me that they were under instruction not to leave 'safe' or with neighbours.
