“Where is my package?” – no doubt the most commonly encountered question by online shop owners.
Deep in our hearts, we totally understand how desperately customers want to receive their packages as soon as possible, but let’s face the reality, retail and online businesses have a very limited budget for deliveries, so it is hard for them to fulfil the ever-demanding customers’ expectations (cry). If you agree to what I just said, keep reading this article. It’s a common misconception for business owners to think that good customer experience comes at the expense of falling profit. After all, you MUST provide the best customer experience ever if you want to stand out from the competitors and break through the current sales bottleneck. What you need is simply a highly-transparent and affordable smart delivery partner. Imagine you are spending most of your time on replying to the “Where is my package?” question, you have no time to market and grow your business. Learn how Pickupp utilises its smart system to provide transparent, reliable yet affordable door-to-door delivery services to help you build a scalable business!
1. Smart algorithm enabling savings of up to 33% delivery cost
Pickupp’s smart delivery platform matches your parcels with suitable delivery agents based on product types, dimensions and weight, for example, if your parcels are light and small, your order will be assigned to walkers or scooters.
