Belgian users of consumer online platform Vinted can now use one of the 2,600 bpost pick-up points.
Once the sales transaction via Vinted has gone through and the buyer has chosen bpost for delivery, the seller creates and prints a bpost shipping label on the Vinted platform. Buyers can then choose their preferred delivery location. As part of the renewed partnership, Vinted users will also benefit from competitive bpost postage tariffs.
The parcels are delivered within one to two days in Belgium (depending on what time of day the sender drops them off) and can be tracked by both seller and buyer in the My bpost app or on the Track & Trace webpage. As well as covering shipments between second-hand customers in Belgium, bpost also ensures the delivery of parcels in Luxembourg, the Netherlands and France.
Vinted supports a circular economy by offering an online platform for users to give clothes a new life by selling them as well as buying them. According to bpost, pick-up points and parcel lockers cut carbon emissions by 30% on average compared with home delivery, and the nearest point is never more than 5km away in Belgium. This method is intended to increase the sustainability of the options presented to consumers.
