Amazon extends 'Pickup Location' scheme to Post Office branches

Amazon has expanded its PickUp Location scheme to include more than 10,500 Post Office branches.

The move takes the total number of Amazon pickup points across the UK to more than 16,000.

Amazon said deliveries made to Amazon Pickup Locations nationally have more than tripled in the last year. Through the retailer’s use of Royal Mail’s Local Collect service, Amazon shoppers can now also have their orders delivered to Post Office branches.

“Customers can collect their Amazon orders from over 16,000 Pickup Locations across the UK,” said Christopher North, managing director of Amazon.co.uk. “Pickup Locations have become the delivery method of choice for many shoppers. Offering the collection of packages from Post Offices is another great way of providing our customers with the highest levels of convenience.”

When using the new service, Amazon customers select their preferred Pickup Location during checkout at Amazon.co.uk and then present identification at the Post Office branch to receive their parcel. Delivery to Post Offices branches is free for Amazon Prime members. Customers who are not Prime members will be charged First Class delivery rates.

Existing Amazon Pickup Locations include ‘Pass My Parcel’ stores, Collect+ stores and Amazon Lockers.
