Amazon trials CollectPlus local delivery scheme

Amazon has begun trialling a scheme where it delivers parcels to around 5,000 corner shops across the country.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Amazon trials CollectPlus local delivery scheme

The online giant has partnered with courier company CollectPlus to enable its customers to receive parcels from their local cornershop or newsagent if it is more convenient than having them delivered to their home. They will also be able to use the service to return any unwanted items. If the trial is successful, it will be rolled out nationwide.

Mark Lewis, CEO at CollectPlus, said: "We are delighted that Amazon.co.uk customers can now choose to have purchases delivered to a CollectPlus store local to them. By opting for a CollectPlus ‘pick up location’ at checkout, Amazon.co.uk customers can choose to collect their items from one of our thousands of shops nationwide, at a time that suits them best. 

"CollectPlus is already integrated into Amazon.co.uk Marketplace, so sellers can choose us as their delivery service. The extension of our service means that more people will be able to use CollectPlus, providing further choice and convenience for their deliveries."    

The CollectPlus delivery scheme is managed by Paypoint, which has a network of 4,900 convenience stores taking delivery of parcels, such as Spar, Costcutter and the Co-operative Group.
