No more worrying about whether or not you've missed the postman.
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.
