E-Commerce Players Seen to Benefit Immensely
The tremendous popularity of e-Commerce in the Philippines has prompted more businesses to sell their products online. As more and more online shops enter the market, competition for customers intensifies and sellers should recognize that any small benefit they can provide their buyers could make or break their business.
According to a study by the Department of Trade and Industry and the World Bank, logistics performance plays a vital role as buyers regard reliability, cost and time to be very important factors when shopping online.
The growth of the online shopping market has led to a corresponding rise in demand for logistics services. And Airspeed has heeded the call. As a reputable, efficient, and innovative end to end logistics solutions and express courier company that has been around for more than 30 years, Airspeed has evolved with the times and now offers online merchants innovative logistics services that can help their businesses grow and progress. Airspeed’s door to door and reverse logistics services are particularly beneficial to online merchants.
Just recently, SM Supermalls, the largest mall developer in the country, has partnered with Airspeed to introduce a new fulfillment service called “Pick-up at SM Supermalls”. Pick-up allows buyers to pick up their online purchases at designated SM Supermalls. Pick up is a cost-effective, efficient and convenient service that benefits online sellers and online buyers. Online retailers save cost by using Pick up as additional delivery hubs for their
buyers, they can consolidate orders of their clients delivery addresses to one Pick up location thereby making it more efficient to fulfill online orders and buyers can be assured of a quick and easy process when they use Pick up to procure their orders.
A Pickup transaction works simply and easily. First, a buyer purchases from an online retailer. Second, the seller packs and delivers the order to a Pick up kiosk at an SM Mall. Then the customer counter associate of the pick- up kiosk receives the order and notifies the buyer that the order is ready for pick-up. The customer goes to the selected SM mall to get the order from the pick-up booth.
Online businesses should take advantage and sign up for Pick up. Aside from affordability and accessibility, merchants can also use other Airspeed services such as Door to Door Forwarding to ship their orders to the pick-up booth at SM, and Reverse Logistics to return any failed Pick up orders.
Online merchants that partner with Airspeed and SM through Pickup service will be able to offer their buyers an effective and convenient delivery option. And in the world of online shopping, even a small advantage can make a big difference.
*Pick up booths will open soon in SM Megamall, SM City Fairview, SM North Edsa and SM Southmall and SM City Masinag.
