Pickup Points

Pickup Points

The point that allows the customer to choose where they want to receive their order is known as a pickup point. This service is also known as out-of-home delivery and provides more flexibility than home delivery. The customer can choose the pickup location as per their convenience and schedules. Pick-up points offer flexibility, bring variety, save time and money and also avoid failed deliveries.

The different kinds of pick-up points include:

  1. Click and collect - Popular among retailers. The method helps create customer turnover indirectly and even increases sales.
  2. Parcel lockers - Located in public spaces and require complex infrastructure. The only disadvantage of this is that the system cannot be used for large parcels.
  3. Post office - Can be used as a pickup point where there are no other pick-up points available.
  4. Collection points - The are similar to Pick Up In-Store except that the store can be a bakery, laundry, or even grocery store nearby
