SingPost has launched a new way for shoppers to collect their e-commerce parcels. POPStation (Pick Own Parcel Station) is the new delivery option consumers can choose at checkouts of certain ecommerce stores. Not many merchants have this delivery option on their store yet but here are a few reasons why POPStation is going to become one of the best things that happened to both ecommerce retailers and shoppers in Singapore.
How does POPStation work?
“SingPost will integrate with your favourite retailers on their websites to offer delivery to the POPStation. After you have completed your order, select POPStation as your preferred delivery address and choose the one most convenient for you. You will receive a sms and email notification once the parcel is delivered to your POPStation and you can pop down to collect it 24/7. It’s free and it’s secure.” -http://mypopstation.com/faqs
Convenient and accessible 24/7
POPstations have covered most of Singapore’s grounds and are still increasing. Besides the numerous locations of this service, customer’s do not have to worry about missing parcels delivered through registered post. An email or SMS will notify you when your mail is ready for collection at your selected POPstation. You can collect and return parcels at your convenience.
Easy to use
Simple instructions are displayed on the POPStation’s screen. You can either scan the barcode given in the email sent to you or key in the code that was sent via text message.
Only you will have access to your designated POPStation box with each code being unique. There are also two CCTV monitors at each station.
It is a free service. If you have selected POPStation as your delivery option, there is no extra delivery charges.
