During this year’s Amazon Prime Day, Collect+ saw a huge surge in Amazon parcel collections at convenience stores, as consumers sought to take advantage of various deals.
Across Prime Day 2022, the number of parcels collected by consumers across Collect+ stores nationwide was 49,956, a 20% increase on the seven days prior of 41,783.
Data from the in-store parcel service also reveals that there was a 13.3% increase from last year’s Amazon Prime Day during the same seven-day period.
“Online shoppers have always been eagle eyed when it comes to online discounts and the surge in parcel deliveries during Amazon Prime Day is testament to more people than ever seeking bargains amid the rising cost of living, inflation and other economic pressures,” PayPoint head of strategic partners and product Nick Williams said.
“It’s another reason why it’s important that online retailers consider how they can enhance the customer experience by giving shoppers the option and accessibility of picking up a parcel at an out-of-home location, of their choosing, at a time that’s convenient for them.”
