We have all been there, ordered online and then waiting around for the courier to deliver. In some circumstances it means taking time off work, or simply sitting around at home instead of doing the stuff we love to do on our days off. Even though couriers can now give one hour delivery windows it still means being around to receive the delivery. Also if you have to go out when the driver turns up, he leaves a card and then you have to go through the hassle of re-delivery.
At Gooseberry we want our customers to purchase their hair-care products with the minimum of hassle, this is why we have teamed up with UPS to offer customer a service called ‘Access Point’.
So what is UPS Access Point?
When ordering your hair products online, via the checkout you can select the service UPS Access Point as a delivery option. This service allows you to choose from a selection of drop off points which are convenient for you to pick up your order from. Drop off locations include retail outlets such as newsagents, flower shops, grocery stores and more. Simply enter your post code and find the nearest collection point. You can also see the time opening and closing times of the selected drop off points. No more waiting around for packages to arrive, simply order and collect at your convenience.
So how much will UPS Access Point cost?
You maybe thinking such convenience will come at a premium? Well, in-fact we are currently charging £1.95 within the UK for this service. This means you receive your order on next day delivery and dropped off at a collection point of your choosing! We are also offering the service to our customers in Germany, France and Spain for only £10. Delivery to these destinations will take 48 hours. More EU destinations will be added by UPS soon.
