Will UPS take Amazon Returns?
The simple answer is yes, UPS will take your Amazon returns. In fact, not only will they take your returns to ship, but UPS can package and label them for you as well.

If you get your returns picked up, just make sure you will be around to hand them to the UPS worker.
How Does UPS Pickup for Amazon Returns Work?
When you are returning items on Amazon, the website will prompt you to select a return shipping method.
You’ll probably have to scroll quite a way down to find it, but the UPS Pick Up option will be on there somewhere.
All you have to do is press UPS Pick Up and then confirm your return.
After this is done, it should tell you when the UPS person will arrive to pick up your return.
You will need to package whatever products you plan on returning before they arrive, but UPS can provide the shipping label if you don’t have one.
The process is very simple. The UPS worker will arrive and knock on your door, then you can bring them whatever packaged items you are going to return. And that’s it!
This is also a nice option because it’s actually free.
So you don’t even have to leave your house, and your items will still be able to get returned without paying any extra fees.

It helps if you box them beforehand, but that’s not entirely necessary, and UPS can do it for you completely free of charge.
Here are the steps:
- From the Amazon home screen, go to “Orders”.

- In the return method section, pick “UPS Drop-off” or “UPS Pickup” depending on which one you plan on doing.
- Press “Submit”.
That’s pretty much it, that is how simple it is.
