Collect+ experiences surge in parcel traffic on Amazon Prime Day

Collect+, the in-store parcel service from PayPoint, has said it saw a huge increase in parcel collections at convenience stores on Amazon Prime Day.

Amazon Prime Day, which took place on 12-13 July, is an annual deal event exclusively for Prime members.

During the week of the event, the number of parcels collected by consumers across 10,000 Collect+ stores nationwide was 49,956, a 20 per cent increase on the seven days prior.

Data from the parcel service also reveals that there was a 13 per cent increase from last year’s Amazon Prime Day during the same seven-day period which recorded 43,817 parcels collected.

“Online shoppers have always been eagle eyed when it comes to online discounts and the surge in parcel deliveries during Amazon Prime Day is testament to more people than ever seeking bargains amid the rising cost of living, inflation and other economic pressures,” said Nick Williams, head of strategic partners and product at PayPoint. “It’s another reason why it’s important that online retailers consider how they can enhance the customer experience by giving shoppers the option and accessibility of picking up a parcel at an out-of-home location, of their choosing, at a time that’s convenient for them.”
