eBay & Argos extend partnership to offer nationwide fulfilment services to buyers and sellers

eBay and Argos have signed a wider multi-year partnership in which they will offer nationwide fulfilment services to eBay buyers and sellers.

eBay will for the first time roll-out a parcel drop-off service where eBay consumer sellers can drop-off their sold items at Argos stores nationwide. The service will commence with 150 stores before the end of 2015, with more stores to follow in the coming year.

Under the new service, items packaged and dropped off in Argos stores by consumer sellers will be despatched to eBay buyers. The move follows a pilot drop-off and delivery service earlier this year in ten Argos stores across four towns.

Tanya Lawler, UK vice president of eBay, said: “In 1995, eBay disrupted shopping by creating a commerce platform powered by customers. Our continued success is all about listening and responding to customers’ needs – and we know that they expect ever digital and traditional retail.”

In addition, Argos and eBay have extended their ongoing commitment to their click & collect programme which began as a small pilot in late 2013.

David Robinson, chief operating officer at Argos, said: “The ability for customers to get their purchases quickly, easily and locally has become the new retail battleground. With over 800 stores and a friendly face on every high street, we are ideally placed to attract eBay’s business and consumer customers to use our unique store network. This deal reaffirms and builds on the successful and deepening relationship between our businesses.”
