Do you remember what mail order shopping looked like before the Internet? Back in the day, (barely 20 years ago), standard delivery took anything up to 28 days. In this digital age, it’s crazy to think that people would wait nearly a month for the postman to deliver their goods.
Today, next day delivery is the norm and, in many cases, even that’s not quick enough. Consumers tell us that they want their deliveries now – and who are we to argue.
Introducing Flubit GO
Flubit GO is a new one-hour delivery service brought to you by Flubit.com, the UK’s largest independent online marketplace in partnership with On the dot (part of CitySprint, the UK’s largest same day distribution service).
The app-based service (launching in Q4, 2016) allows consumers, initially in the London, Birmingham and Manchester metropolitan areas, to select from millions of branded products, at significantly lower prices than available from Amazon, then choose a same-day, one-hour delivery slot to suit their schedule.
Life no longer has to be put on hold while consumers wait for their online shopping to arrive. Bar teleportation, e-commerce couldn’t get any more convenient.
And it’s not just the consumer that wins.
Flubit GO enables retailers to compete with high cost, same-day delivery services like Amazon Prime with absolutely zero financial risk.
Remember: Flubit does not charge retailers any listing or final value fees to add their inventory to the Flubit.com or Flubit Go marketplaces. The price you set for each SKU is the price you’ll receive. Understanding your margins and cost of sale has never been easier.
Flubit GO is actively recruiting retailers to join its fast and free service.
To participate, we need retailers to:
- Hold stock within a 10-mile radius of London, Birmingham or Manchester.
- Be able to pick and pack an order ready for same day collection.
To register your interest simply email [email protected] with your:
- Distribution centre or store address(es)
- Pick & pack lead time
- Opening hours
