PayPoint and eBay have been announced as the winners of the ‘Best Domestic or International Delivery Options’ award at MetaPack’s prestigious Delivery Excellence Awards 2019.
Voted on by over 100 industry leaders, PayPoint and eBay won the award for their Click & Collect initiative which saw the Collect+ network – that PayPoint owns and operates at more than 7,000 convenience stores – opened up to eBay buyers and sellers in the UK. By partnering with PayPoint, eBay offers its customers the option to choose to collect products from over 2,500 Collect+ stores.
Rob Hattrell, vice president of eBay UK, said, “It’s a great achievement to have our partnership with PayPoint recognized through the receiving of a Delivery Excellence Award. It’s important that we’re able to offer this delivery method to each of our 25 million eBay UK customers a month and it’s brilliant to see it go from strength to strength.”
Dominic Taylor, CEO at PayPoint, said, “This award is a great achievement for all involved and we are thrilled that the eBay Click & Collect solution has been recognized via a prestigious industry accolade.
“The full roll-out to 2,500 stores was completed in the space of just four weeks and since then we have seen rapid adoption of the eBay Click & Collect service across our Collect+ network. Winning this award is an important milestone for our open-carrier parcel solution.”
