Parcel shop is so 2020. A Parcelly location partnership is much more than that. Today Parcelly powers some of the most innovative businesses across the convenience, hospitality and retail sectors with our all-ecommerce aggregating tech solution. Do you know a warehousing platform that activates commercial real estate for a range of E-commerce related services? You do now. It starts with P and ends in Y.
Parcelly is on a mission to simplify parcel collections, by allowing your customers to pick up their online purchases how, when and where is most convenient for them. Because of this, we are on the look-out for partner locations to be set up as Hyper-local Warehouses. The opportunity is out there waiting for you ... With no costs involved, becoming a Parcelly location provides your store with extra revenue, direct access to new customers and cross-selling opportunities, keeping your business at the forefront of the ever-growing world of E-commerce. Perks that benefit not only you and your business but also your customers! An all-round win (we like to think anyway!)
Online shopping continues to grow year on year. British consumers spent a total of £ 113 billion online throughout 2020, a rise of 48% on the year before. The Covid-19 pandemic caused online shopping to boom and brick-and-mortar retail to struggle. While E-commerce saw a rise of 18%, brick-and-mortar retail saw a decline of 14%. Why not make your brick-and-mortar store a part of this online revolution? Online orders currently account for 1 in 20 convenience store transactions. Shopping habits are changing. Start infusing your business!
Our Parcelly network is growing. We currently operate 2500+ PUDO ('Pick-up and Drop-off' that is) locations for collections and returns, having location partnerships with many reputable businesses including Costcutter, OneStop, Booker , Kwiksave, ACS and Barnardos . While driving ever-growing parcel volumes through our partner network, we collaborate with a broad range of international retail and logistics brands, such as DHL, Stuart, Deliveroo, Just Eat, Uber Eats, Aesop, Krispy Kreme, Community Fiber and many, many more. E-commerce is the future and your business can be a part of that.
