Amazon UK has announced an expansion of its Pick-Up Location program with its first ever Same-Day collection service. Shoppers will be able to purchase products and pick up their order that day through collaboration with newspaper and magazine distributor Smiths News, a division of Connect Group Plc. With same-day collection, shoppers can order as late as 11:45am for collection from 4pm. Shoppers are notified via email when their order is available and can collect their parcel up to 11:59pm, depending on store closing time. Shoppers will also have the option of Express Morning collection with orders placed up to 7:45pm guaranteed for next morning delivery from 6:30am- 9am. The new service is available at more than 500 newsagents and convenience stores which will carry ‘Pass my Parcel’ branding to highlight the service to shoppers. For a limited time, Amazon Prime members will be able to use the new pick-up service free of charge. Shoppers who aren’t members of Amazon Prime can use Same-Day collection or Express Morning Collection for GBP 4.99 for a limited time.
