(CNN) — Amazon claims to know its customers so well they can ship what you need before you order it.
The Wall Street Journal reports the retail giant got a patent last month for what it calls "anticipatory shopping."
The company said it may ship products based on customer's previous orders and shopping habits like searches, wishlists, and shopping cart contents.
This is Amazon's second attempt at cutting delivery time in an effort to keep customers happy.
The first was when they announced they'd like to use drones to deliver packages.
