Ebay is poised to expand its click-and-collect service with new pick-up locations after signing a new deal with Doddle.
The pilot service will commence with Doddle‘s flagship locations in London and Brighton, including Kings Cross, Canary Wharf and Liverpool Street, before expanding to all Doddle locations in supermarkets, shopping centres and charity shops in the coming months.
Under the new service, buyers will be able to collect their Ebay purchases from Doddle stores for free.
Ebay will notify buyers as soon as their item is available for collection and they can pick it up at a time that is most convenient for them.
“Our buyers and sellers are at the heart of everything we do and we want to make shopping and selling on Ebay as convenient and flexible as possible,” Ebay head of shipping development Jon Ford said.
“That means providing as many ways to improve the delivery experience for buyers.
“We already have millions of click-and-collect enabled listings on Ebay and the collaboration with Doddle will help us extend our collection footprint whilst also helping sellers on Ebay to enhance their fulfilment capabilities.”
