Payzone and fastway couriers

Payzone and Ireland’s leading franchise courier Fastway Couriers, are set to launch a new online product called Parcel Connect – an innovative new service that allows customers to Send, Collect and Return online goods via their local shop.

Bobby O’Keefe, CEO of Fastway Couriers commented: “Online shopping in Ireland is growing at a phenomenal rate and in particular we’ve seen a massive increase of retail sales into Ireland from the likes of Littlewoods, ASOS and Oxendales. However, barriers persist for customers around missed home deliveries and problematic and costly returns. With the introduction of Parcel Connect, both sellers and buyers can now enjoy a more convenient and cost effective service.”

Parcel Connect is a new and unique service in Ireland where you can elect to have your parcels picked up from or delivered to a range of local shops, convenient for you. For this new chapter in Fastway’s journey they chose Payzone as their exclusive channel partner, and together they plan on dramatically changing how people use online shopping now and in the future. With just under 400 Payzone outlets already signed up, mainly across symbol group stores throughout the 26 counties, the plan was to reach 750 by end November 2013 and 1,000 stores by the end of January 2014.
