A lot of us like to shop online because it's fast and easy.
Now Amazon.com is hoping to make the delivery process just as speedy.
The company is testing a new system called Prime Air that would deliver packages using drones.
It would all begin here at an Amazon distribution center.
The item would be placed in a yellow box, sent down a conveyer belt, and a drone would pick up the package and fly it to the customer's home.
Guided by a GPS system, the drone would be capable of delivering packages up to 5 pounds and traveling within a 10-mile radius.
Amazon's CEO says it'll probably be another four to five years before the new drone delivery system makes it to a home near you.
