Amazon Flex is a delivery platform where you can get paid to deliver packages for Amazon.
Flex drivers are independent contractors: You use your own vehicle, choose delivery ‘blocks,’ and decide when you want to work.
It’s a popular gig that pays $18–$25 per hour on average.
Delivering for Amazon Flex: The Basics
To qualify for Flex, you must be 21 or older with access to a 4-door sedan, pickup truck, or van.
As a Flex driver, you can do several different types of Amazon deliveries. You might pick up a batch of boxes from an Amazon Warehouse, or deliver groceries from Whole Foods.
Amazon Flex isn’t an on-demand delivery platform like Uber Eats or DoorDash. Instead of logging in and waiting for orders, you sign up for delivery blocks that are typically between 2 and 4 hours.
Each delivery block shows you how much you will earn, the block duration, and the order type.
When it’s time for your delivery block, you arrive at the pickup location to receive packages, then use the navigation route in the Flex app to deliver each package.
That’s Flex in a nutshell! Check out our popular Flex articles for a deep dive into the life of a Flex driver.
