CollectPlus has launched a new in-store label printing service to simplify the process of sending a package for customers who don’t have access to a printer.

The new service is the first of its kind in the UK and will allow customers to buy labels on the CollectPlus website to be printed in stores across the CollectPlus network. Labels cost just 30p each.

The service will be available to almost all of the 5,800+ local convenience stores, newsagents, supermarkets and petrol stations in the CollectPlus network. The ‘Print-in-store’ service is easy to implement with existing technology being capable of carrying out the new service and print out customers’ pre-ordered labels.

Mark Lawrence, ‎operations and service director at CollectPlus, said: “We are proud to offer the first nationwide ‘Print-in-Store’ service designed to suit the needs of our customers, many of whom don’t have ready access to a printer. We are constantly striving to improve our customers’ experience and the ‘Print in-Store’ service plays another invaluable part in us providing a one-stop service for all modern delivery needs.

“We have no doubt that store owners across our network will see the immediate benefit of offering this extension to our service as the added convenience will appeal to both existing and new customers, helping provide additional footfall alongside the commission earned.”

According to CollectPlus, two-thirds of its customers say they are visiting the store for the first time, with the service driving new customers to stores.
