Yeah you keep saying collect+ only work with 32 retailers. That probably covers the biggest online retailers though and there's nothing stopping them adding more to their list if they believe it would be beneficial.

I think its a decent idea. None of the parcels I've got in transit are from any collectplus available retailers. ebay, nike, picture fram website. How do you earn money? We pay to pick it up?

I see, goodluck with it mate, hope it works out for you.

Collizhum, FAQs say that it's free while they're beta. Then you pay to book deliveries.

Yea, doddle.it have a similar idea to us in that they accept parcels from anyone. They have dedicated stores though so a massive fixed cost per store, which results in a higher price and relatively limited scalability.

Idea is definitely ok as there's space\demand for it. Not having fixed costs or particular technical requirements as your main competitors is a big plus. My only concern is related to the revenue model which seems a bit weak, if you allow me. Customers sooner or later will have to pay, while most of the times competitors will have it for free with a tiny minimum spending. 1.50 is nothing for the customer, but will you keep it all for you? Or you give part of it to the stores?
Amount of parcels moved is huge, you said 1 billion, but what's the dimension of your market\segment?

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I'll pay stores per transaction. This will be more than competitors pay (I've checked). They do also benefit from increased footfall and other purchases made when picking stuff up.
Click and collect makes up 15% of the billion parcels (and it's growing as a share). I want one percent of that 15. That's 1.5 million parcels a year.

I can give you a list of the top 100 magento retailers in the uk (and the key contacts there) drop me a pm.

(cant get parcels shipped to work as puts unnecessary pressure on porters)
