I've never had a problem when shipping to my daughter's PO Box in CA.

Also they give you other options, like Amazon lockers, maybe one close to where you live.

They can't give a blanket promise like that because they have third-party vendors on their platform that they don't have control over as far as how they ship.

As for eBay, many eBay sellers refuse to ship to PO Boxes as a safety measure to prevent scams and fraud. They would prefer a real physical address to verify that the user is real.

Amazon lockers was my suggestion too.
I live in Charlotte NC and wonder how many small towns have lockers.

Yes, the delivery system can be difficult. We live actually near an Amazon facility. But sometimes one driver delivers to the door (apartment) and another to the mailbox downstairs in the lobby. So that's not the greatest. But I do believe they have drop-off facilities at stores.

We live in a large city (Fort Lauderdale) and there are dropoff facilities at a couple of stores around here.

Amazon has a whole bunch of other places you can receive deliveries, for instance in drug stores, in grocery stores, and in other stores.

they are put in a locker inside these stores, and you are sent a code to type in to retrieve your packages. it works great.

All my Amazon orders go to my Post Office address and I never had any problems with that. It's safe, easy and I don't need to worry about package being stolen.

Amazon provides other options as well, like above mentioned lockers and dropoff facilities, Amazon hub delivery programs.

I've picked up my packages at Dollar General, before, in the winter, when it was snowing on my mountain.

Can you have the packages delivered to your work? That's what I do.
