CollectPlus Launches Same Day Click & Collect With ASOS For Leeds University Students

The UK’s largest independent store-based delivery and returns service, and last mile delivery start-up, have unveiled the latest addition to their partnerships with ASOS. ASOS Instant, the leading online retailer’s same-day delivery service, launched this week direct to Leeds University campus – and is free for Premier customers.

ASOS Instant – On Campus means shoppers can buy something before lunch and pick it up from Leeds University Union Pop-Up, the CollectPlus Point by the Student Union, from 5pm that evening. The same-day service is the first of its kind to be offered with CollectPlus and marks a new development in ASOS’ ongoing relationship with On the dot, which has partnered with ASOS to bring ASOS Instant same-day delivery to London, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham over the last few years.

  • Order by 12pm noon (Monday – Friday) for delivery later the same day
  • Packages will be available for collection from the Leeds University campus CollectPlusPoint (inthe Union Pop-Up) from 5pm that evening until it shuts at 7pm
  • ASOS Instant – On Campus is free for Premier Delivery customers. Premier costs just £9.95 for a year and gives customers unlimited next-day delivery as well (more details on Premier here)
  • For those who aren’t a Premier customer, same day Click & Collect only costs just £2.95
  • Any unwanted items can be deposited at the CollectPlusPoint for free returns to ASOS.

 

Is this service just for Leeds University students?

  • No – anyone shipping to the LS2 postcode will see the option in checkout.

What happens if a customer can’t collect their package that day?

  • CollectPlus will hold parcels for 10 days.

How does the process work once the delivery is placed?

  • When an order is placedwith ASOS, CollectPlus will keep customers up to date throughout the delivery process and will confirm when customer orders are ready to collect via email or SMS. Customers can easily track their orders using the CollectPlus app.
