Amazon delivery in Australia through Amazon Flex has instantly become popular with gig workers as it entered the Australian parcel delivery market. Since you only need a car to sign up, it’s a great opportunity to top up your income. In a nutshell, Amazon Flex recruits on-demand drivers to move packages from central delivery stations to customers’ homes.
To become an Amazon Flex driver, you have to meet some requirements, similar to the Uber or Didi driver requirements. If you’re already driving with any of the most popular rideshare apps or other on-demand platforms, signing up for Amazon Flex will be no different. In fact, it’ll be more straightforward as they require less paperwork, most of which you should already have.
If you fit these criteria and have all the paperwork ready, simply create an Amazon Flex profile online and you’re ready to go.
Amazon Flex is not picky when it comes to car requirements, but the idea is that it has to be large enough to safely carry enough packages to keep you busy for a few hours. This is why motorcycles and even two-door passenger cars or utes that don’t have a covered bed won’t qualify.
On top of your existing insurance coverage, Amazon will provide Amazon Insurance Coverage which is at no cost to you (subject to deductibles) and will help cover any Amazon Flex deliveries.
To boost your weekly income, you can do parcel delivery and Uber driving at the same time, be active on both platforms and split your working time. Check the Uber driver and car requirements to see if you fit the criteria.
TIP: Even if you’re driving in your hometown, use a navigation app to go straight to the destination through the shortest and cheapest route.

Amazon Flex is currently available for delivery opportunities in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Newcastle. See below the Amazon Flex pick-up locations for each city.
After downloading the Amazon Flex app and setting up your account, you can easily look for available “delivery blocks” when they’re released weekly. These blocks are set amounts of time that you can reserve in advance, to let Amazon and the clients know when you’re available, and also help you plan ahead both in terms of your schedule and your income.
With every block, you can see the expected earnings and the amount of time it will take you to complete the delivery. Simply choose the block that works best for you and turn off your rideshare apps during the time you’re working with Amazon Flex.
TIP: Use Amazon Flex to top up your rideshare earnings. By using the delivery blocks, you make sure to have plenty of work and a reliable income during the hours when rideshare demand is low.
When you choose your block, the app gives you a pick-up location, the estimated duration for the trip, and a minimum amount for completing the block. The app will also help you navigate to each destination – you simply deliver the package that corresponds with that address.
Once you complete your deliveries, Amazon Flex will pay you once a week via direct deposit. You can track this in your Earnings section within the Amazon Flex app.
