Royal Mail has expanded its Sunday delivery service, which is now available to over 12,000 of its online retailer customers, a significant increase from the current 75.
Any retailer or marketplace seller using the Royal Mail Tracked24 service will now be able to provide a next day delivery for items ordered on a Saturday.
“Shoppers can put their feet up at the weekend and let Royal Mail do the work for them,” the company said.
This expanded Sunday delivery service will enable thousands more retailers, regardless of their size, to offer more choice and convenience to their customers.
Royal Mail says it is helping retailers tap into the seven-day-a-week delivery market, as consumers increasingly expect Sunday deliveries as part of their online shopping experience.
In fact, 77% of consumers say fast delivery times make them more confident to shop online.
“We all know how convenient it is to order something online that will arrive the next day. Now you can do the same when ordering from thousands of smaller online retailers using our Tracked24 service, seven days a week,” Royal Mail chief commercial officer Nick Landon said.
“Royal Mail is transforming to make sure we deliver what you need now and in the future. This change will help thousands of businesses to offer the most convenient delivery options to their customers and to compete and grow.
“The UK already trusts Royal Mail to deliver their purchases six-days-a-week both quickly and conveniently. From now on you can trust us to do just the same seven days a week.”
