Whatever the case may be, cancelling an Amazon Flex block can be accomplished smoothly by following some simple steps. This article will outline the process in detail.

What is Amazon Flex?

Amazon Flex is a program that provides drivers, called Amazon Flex drivers, the opportunity to earn money by delivering Amazon packages.

They can choose available delivery blocks through the Amazon Flex app. The blocks last approximately 2-5 hours.

That is all it takes to cancel an Amazon Flex block. The block will be removed from your schedule immediately. You will no longer be expected to complete that delivery block.

Note: Be aware blocks must be cancelled no later than 44 minutes and 59 seconds before the start time to avoid a late cancellation.

Amazon Flex Cancellation Policies

Amazon has specific policies regarding late cancellations of blocks. Understanding these policies can help avoid violations.

Blocks can be cancelled up to 45 minutes before start time with no impact to driver standing. Blocks accepted less than 45 minutes in advance have a 5 minute grace period to cancel.

What Happens After Cancelling an Amazon Flex Block?

Once a block is cancelled, it will immediately free up the driver’s schedule at that time. The block will become available for other drivers to reserve.

Cancelling a block will not incur any fees or penalties as long as it is not considered a late cancellation within 45 minutes of the start time. No further actions are required after cancelling through the app.

The driver’s overall Flex statistics and ratings are not affected by properly cancelling blocks. However, if excessive late cancellations occur, it can lead to warnings and eventually deactivation. Amazon expects drivers to maintain high attendance rates for reserved blocks.


Cancelling an Amazon Flex block is easy to do through the mobile app. Simply tap into your schedule, select the block, and confirm the cancellation. Be aware of the attendance policies around late cancellations to avoid violations. With responsible use, the cancellation feature provides flexibility for drivers when the need arises.
