If you've ever ordered from Amazon, chances are you've experienced that sinking feeling that comes with missing the delivery. Amazon UK is currently trying to remedy this issue with a new trial that will allow customers to have their packages delivered to stores near where they live.
A collaboration with courier company Collect+, The Telegraph reports that a total of 5,000 corner shops and newsagents will be participating in the scheme. Initially dealing with shipments of books and clothes, customers will also be able to use Collect+ to return unwanted items. The scheme is designed to offer people a convenient way to collect parcels while also driving traffic for the participating shops.
According to Engadget, Collect+ will be available as a delivery option for customers when they're checking out on Amazon. Similarly, Marketplace sellers can select it as a mode of delivery.
