Amazon Flex is an app-based gig that allows you to make money by delivering packages from Amazon. It’s also a job that requires you to track your assignments, follow set schedules, and monitor your performance. Sounds exhausting? It kind of is.
As exciting as being a delivery driver for Amazon sounds, it’s still a job with its fair share of downsides. You can’t just turn up whenever you feel like it — you need to give plenty of notice before each shift and find someone to cover for you if you can’t make it on time or at all.
Cancelling your Amazon Flex appointment is probably one of the hardest things about being an Amazon Flex driver. Luckily, this article will walk you through everything you need to know about cancelling your block and no longer working with Amazon Flex!
What does cancelling your block mean?
Your block is the number of deliveries you have to complete per week. You’ll have one block per week, which you can split up however you like. You might choose to work one shift on Monday, one on Wednesday, and one on Friday. Or you might decide to work a shift every day from Monday to Saturday, with Sunday off. It’s completely up to you. You’ll have an average of two to four hours per shift as an Amazon Flex driver. You’ll be paid per delivery, and you can earn up to $25 per hour.
How to cancel an Amazon Flex appointment
If you’re signed up to work with Amazon Flex, you can cancel your appointments directly from the app.
- Simply go to the “My Schedule” tab and tap the appointment you want to cancel.
- From here, you can select “Cancel this block” to cancel the shift.
- You can also select “Extend” if you don’t have time to make your current appointment.
- If you’ve signed up to work with Amazon Flex but haven’t downloaded the app yet, then you can cancel your appointment via email.
Simply write to Amazon and let them know you don’t want to work with them any longer. Include your Amazon Flex ID and the date you joined.
Why you might want to cancel your block
Like we’ve said, cancelling your Amazon Flex appointment can be incredibly difficult. You may want to quit for any number of reasons, but you need to make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons.
If you’re struggling to make your block, you’re almost certainly going to struggle to keep your job. Amazon Flex drivers are expected to work at least 80% of their appointments each week, so missing more than a few shifts per month will cost you your job.
If you’re finding your schedule too stressful, or if you have other commitments that prevent you from working enough hours, then it’s probably time to quit. You don’t want to be fired for neglecting your commitments, so it’s best to call it quits before you get to that point. If you signed up to work with Amazon Flex and haven’t downloaded their app yet, you can also let them know you’d like to cancel your contract.
Is it possible to extend your block?
If you want to extend your block, you can do so by editing your scheduled shift. Tap the “Schedule” tab on the app and select “Edit” next to the shift you want to extend. Tap “Add time” and select “Add time to this block”. You can now choose to extend your block by 30 minutes, 1 hour, or 2 hours. If you want to cancel your block early, you can. Simply select “Cancel this block” when editing your appointment.
