Lazada parcel collection at 7-Eleven

Date : 18 October 2018

Lazada shoppers can now choose to collect their online purchases from 7-Eleven outlets in Singapore.

How does it work?

Convenience store chain 7-Eleven, online retailer Lazada and logistics provider Ninja Van announced a collaboration to allow shoppers on Lazada to choose a 7-Eleven store as a pick up point for their parcels. It is available at 159 7-Eleven stores from today (18 October), and will be rolled out to the rest of the 350 participating stores by the end of the year. 

Ray Chou, country head of Ninja Van Singapore, said, "we do encounter a substantial number of failed deliveries, which is disruptive not only for our customers, but sellers and delivery companies as well."

What does it mean for shoppers?

Shoppers are often not at home to receive their parcels, due to the rising number of single and dual residential households. Besides saving time, shoppers can also enjoy some savings if they choose to pick up their own parcels. The parcel pick up service is free for Lazada's shoppers, while home deliveries cost SGD1.49 (US$1.07) for normal and SGD2.99 (US$2.17) for express service.

The service provides an "added convenience to consumers' daily lives and online shopping habits", said 7-Eleven Singapore's head of marketing Crispian Leong.
