Clicks launches click-and-collect delivery

| Innovation and technology

Clicks Retailers has partnered with Pargo to enable online shoppers to collect and return their purchases in Clicks stores throughout the country.

Shoppers will be able to buy from online retailers such as Spree, bidorbuy and OneDayOnly and collect their parcels from over 500 Clicks stores.

Pargo’s alternative delivery service, better known as click-and- collect, was launched early 2015 by Lars Veul and Derk Hoekert in response to the growing South African online landscape and lack of available delivery options.

“Delivery is recognized world-wide as the key friction point in ecommerce and a major deterrent to the growth of internet-based economy” said Lars Veul.

“This is especially true in the South African environment where local online shoppers are often forced to make a difficult decision between the deteriorating postal service and pricey couriers.”

Pargo already operates parcel points at retail chains including Freshstop at Caltex, Waltons and 7Eleven.

Vikesh Ramsunder, Clicks COO said: “We know shoppers are busier than ever and are looking for greater convenience and ease in everything they do. This new service will help them make best use of their time by removing the need to wait at home for a parcel to arrive. Parcel pick-up is just another way we are able to help our customers with convenient solutions that suit their individual lifestyles.”
