New Zealand’s Post is about to launch a trial for a new delivery service for Kiwi online shoppers, called Shipmate.
As per NZ Post official news announcement for an up-front payment, shoppers can make an unlimited number of purchases with no delivery fee from participating online retailers.
Brendan Thawley NZ Post’s head of Customer Strategy says, “We’re excited about this new innovation in the New Zealand market and are delighted that four of The Warehouse Group’s brands will be the first to offer the service to their customers”
He also says NZ Post has been listening to its customers and is working with them to develop new initiatives to create value for them.
“A shared problem for both parcel senders and receivers is that often consumers want to buy small things online, but the cost of shipping is too high relative to the purchase. We’re working to deliver solutions for both of these groups.”
