Argos and eBay extend click & collect partnership to 650 shops

Argos and eBay have extended their click & collect partnership to enable shoppers to select products from a wider range of eBay sellers for collection from around 650 Argos stores.

Launched in September 2013, the partnership initially began with a trial of 50 eBay sellers offering a selected range of products for collection in 150 Argos stores.

As the trial has proved successful, the two companies now expect around 65,000 eBay sellers to be offering items for collection at Argos by the end of 2014, with the number rising to around 80,000 in 2015. Argos will make the click & collect service available in around 650 of its stores.

Argos chief operating officer David Robinson said: “The next stage in the agreement is to have more sellers, more stores and more volume to assess how we can scale this partnership for the benefit of consumers, Argos and eBay. Fulfilment is the next retail battleground and Argos’ unique model is well placed to leverage this.”

Tanya Lawler, UK vice president at eBay, added: “Retail has changed and shoppers are in the driving seat like never before. They want to shop anytime, anywhere, on any device and British shoppers love to click & collect. It’s a service being rapidly adopted by larger retailers and this partnership with Argos now gives tens of thousands of sellers the chance to capitalise on click & collect, even if they have no high street presence of their own.”
