Amazon Flex is a great gig for drivers who want to work on their own schedule, but you might not be able to commit to it every week. Fortunately, Amazon also gives you the option of canceling your block whenever you want. If you’re reading this article, it probably means that you recently signed up for the Amazon Flex program and need to know how to cancel your block so that you can stop delivering packages. Luckily, it’s a pretty straightforward process.
You can log into the Amazon Flex app and cancel a block up to 45 minutes before the scheduled start of the block. However, cancelling a block up to five minutes before it begins will negatively impact your account status.
The remainder of this article will describe the process for canceling Amazon Flex deliveries.
How to Cancel Amazon Flex Block
If you need to cancel an Amazon Flex block, you can do so by following these steps:
- Open the Amazon Flex app on your mobile device.
- Tap the menu icon in the top left corner of the screen.
- Tap ‘Your Schedule’ to view your upcoming blocks.
- Tap the block you wish to cancel.
- Tap ‘Cancel Block’ at the bottom of the screen.
- You will be asked to confirm that you wish to cancel the block. Tap ‘Confirm’ to proceed.
Why You Shouldn’t Cancel Your Amazon Flex Block
One of the first thoughts that comes to mind when you’re trying to decide whether to cancel your block is that you’re going to get out of a commitment. But you shouldn’t do it. There are several reasons why you shouldn’t cancel your block. First and foremost, when you sign up for the Amazon Flex program, you promise to fulfill your commitment. If you decide to cancel your block, you’re breaking that promise and you might get banned from the program as a result. In other words, you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
What happens after you cancel your block?
If you decide to cancel your block, you’re not automatically out of the Amazon Flex program, but you might get banned from driving for the platform in the future. If you decide to cancel, you have until your next scheduled block to do so. Amazon Flex has a 24-hour “cancellation grace period” during which you can back out of your commitment. If you don’t cancel, you’re expected to work the number of hours you committed to during your next block. If you decide to cancel your block, it is unlikely that you will get another one in the future.
Can You Forfeit an Amazon Flex Block
Yes, you can forfeit an Amazon flex block. If you do not want to complete a block or are unable to complete a block, you can forfeit the block. Forfeiting a block means that you will not be paid for the block and the block will not be completed.
If you want to forfeit an Amazon flex block, make sure that your reasons are legitimate. There’s no reason to skip out on work just because someone else wants your space or because they have something against the company as a whole.
There is no requirement for Amazon Flex blocks to be canceled, and the process is simple. However, canceling too many blocks without sufficient notice (45 minutes) will result in your account being disabled.
It is important to provide sufficient notice before canceling an Amazon Flex block. Try not to cancel blocks at the last minute.
