Tell us what your business does:

Parcelly’s aim is to make it easier for people to receive their online purchases by allowing them to send their parcels to shops of their choice, where they can pick the items up when it is best for them.

The app informs users  when the parcel is delivered and ready to be picked up, and it’s accessible for consumers via iOS devices (Android to follow shortly). We’re currently partnering with a growing number of independent local and nationwide businesses (convenience stores, newsagents, dry cleaners, gyms, etc.) enabling them to get an additional income as well as footfall for their business.

Alongside supporting the local high street and retailers, we also donate 5% of our profits to Atmosfair in order to reduce the carbon footprint of every delivery.
