Currys PC World signs On the dot partnership
Written by Chris Lemmon
Currys PC World has partnered with delivery brand On the dot to launch a same-day delivery service across its UK network.
The new fulfilment option is designed to offer customers a more convenient and efficient delivery experience. Customers opting for same-day home deliveries will be able to select a two-hour delivery timeslot of their choice that day, between 12pm and 10pm. Same-day timeslots will automatically be displayed upon checkout to eligible customers – those placing an order for a small item before 4pm.
On the dot’s open API means it can be easily integrated into retailers’ existing checkouts and EPoS, both online and in-store, and all deliveries are GPS tracked in real time, with SMS and email notifications.
Stuart Ramage, e-commerce director at Currys PC World, commented: “At Currys PC World, we pride ourselves on helping our customers get it right when it comes to purchasing electrical items and home appliances. From small screen televisions to microwave ovens, it’s important we get their purchase to them wherever they want it, when they want it.
“We’re excited to be partnering with On the dot to introduce same-day delivery, meaning our customers now have a suite of delivery options available to them, both online and in-store.”
Patrick Gallagher, CEO of On the dot, added: “We are delighted that Currys PC World has chosen to work with On the dot for its new delivery offering. We know that consumers today expect to shop on their terms, and it is retailers like Currys PC World who have put convenient delivery at the top of their agenda that will succeed in retaining and attracting new customers.’’
The new service, which runs seven days a week and costs customers £9.95, is available to shoppers within a 10-mile radius of a Currys PC World store.
