Amazon.com wants to ship your package before you buy it.

The Wall Street Journal reports the website has a patent for “anticipatory shipping.” The process might evaluate factors like previous orders, a customer's search history, wish lists, shopping-cart contents and returns and perhaps even how long a customer's cursor hovers over an item according to the paper.
 
An Amazon spokesperson declined to comment.
