CollectPlus Introduces New Pricing For Send Service

COLLECTPLUS INTRODUCES NEW PRICING FOR SEND SERVICE FROM £3.99

New, lower price point improves access to CollectPlus Send services for customers, small businesses and sellers on online marketplaces

CollectPlus, the UK’s largest independent store-based delivery and returns service, has reduced the pricing of its popular Send service to support customers, small businesses and sellers on online marketplaces. Available exclusively through the CollectPlus website, the cost of sending a 3-5-day Economy service parcel weighing under 2kg has been cut to £3.99 from £4.99, and the cost of sending a similarly weighted 2-day Standard parcel has been reduced in price to £4.69 from £5.69.

The CollectPlus Send service can be accessed through any of CollectPlus’ 7,000 stores nationwide, and for a small additional cost, labels can be printed in store by customers who do not have a printer at home.

Commenting on the introduction of new pricing for the Send service, Matthew Jacques, Strategic Partnerships Director at CollectPlus, said: “Our customers love our Send service for the high level of convenience it offers to the sender as they can drop off their parcels at a time that suits them, seven days a week. Reducing the cost of the Send service will make it even more attractive to our customers, especially online marketplace sellers and small businesses.”

The reduction in cost for the Send service follows the launch of Social Send in October 2017. This innovative service enables customers to send parcels through the CollectPlus app knowing only the recipient’s email address, or phone number.
