5 Ways Parcelly Makes Your Life More Convenient


1.       Responsive

Parcelly aims to make the online shopping experience as convenient as possible for consumers. With over more than 250 locations across the U.K, we are working towards opening new collection points on every corner. You can also suggest a new location by clicking on the ‘Request a new location’ button in the Parcelly app, the team will strive as hard as they can to open a new location in your neighbourhood, as soon as possible.

2.       Simple

As a subscribing customer, once you’ve generated your Parcelly ID you can use this same code wherever you shop online, safe in the knowledge that your parcels will be sent securely to your chosen location. In addition, with our app you’ll never have to sign for a parcel–simply mark the parcels as ‘collected’ and the process is validated.  

3.       On-the-go

Parcelly is the only service that allows you to shop anywhere online and track the progress of your parcel no matter where you are. Our app-based service means you can order while on the go and receive immediate notification when your parcel arrives by push notification, even if you don’t have phone signal to receive texts.

4.       Worldwide

With Parcelly you can order online with any retailer, worldwide. That means literally absolutely every online retailer. It doesn’t matter if you’re ordering from Tesco Online, Amazon US or Alibaba, if the website delivers to the UK, you can collect it at a Parcelly location. Once you’ve generated your Parcelly ID it becomes part of your address field, so no matter where you’re shopping online, just add it to the top line when you’re on the checkout screen. With Parcelly you can shop global and collect local.

5.       Flexible

If you miss your delivery it can be a real pain having to go after work to queue up at a depot. But it’s even worse that many of these depots close before 6, forcing you to spend your Saturdays queuing up at the Post Office. Many of our Parcelly locations are open late nights, 7 days a week, with some even 24/7 which allows you to collect your parcel when it suits you best.  

The new shopping trend: ''Click and Collect''

Missed deliveries are now a thing of the past for online shoppers with Parcelly’s click and collect technology.

Click and Collect is now booming in Europe. 2015 statistics reveal that in the UK, one third of all online retail revenue now comes from click and collect transactions. 73% of online consumers have used click and collect services in the UK in 2015(IMRG). A recent report from JDA and Centrino also showed that 41% of shoppers used click and collect services over the Christmas period vs 39% in 2014. However, the survey also highlights that 1 in 3 customers were not happy with their click and collect experience.

These days the typical online shopper leads a busy lifestyle, and many consumers now find it easier to use click and collect services. Parcelly aims to make this click and collect process as easy and convenient as possible for both customers and retailers, by allowing customers to send parcels to their chosen Parcelly location from any web store, worldwide. Our parcel enthusiasts will then ensure that your package arrives safely at your local Parcelly collection point, instead of your doorstep. In addition, our click and collect service is highly flexible, as customers can pick up their parcels at a time and location that suits them, with many of our locations open late nights or even 24/7. Our competitive pricing and the convenience we offer are what have led to us expanding rapidly in the click and collect industry over the past year.

In the frantic modern world of e-commerce, retailers have to keep pace with the competition and diversify their click and collect services in order to meet the increasing demand for convenience from consumers. ‘’We are constantly working with new online retailers to offer them our app based click and collect solution,’’ says Sebastian Steinhauser, Parcelly’s CEO.
