For most Australians, online shopping has become a regular part of everyday life, and the preferred option for many of us. This has been supported and accelerated by improved online retail experiences, availability and speed offered by businesses across the board.
From purchase to your door, in recent years we have seen leaps and bounds in the number of options, and wait-time, that shoppers can expect to receive their online purchases. Months turned to weeks, and weeks to days for delivery.
Whether by land, air or sea, there has been a veritable explosion in delivery technology which has affected all categories and industries, including pharmacy services. However, there are still challenges for both consumers and businesses as we acclimatise to the age of online shopping.
For example, many shoppers have stories of extended wait times, lost parcels, difficulty with collection or pick-up of their order at home or through the post office, incorrect tracking information, and vanishing orders, to identify just a few.
Not only this, but many shops and brands are facing challenging times as increasing numbers of shoppers choose to augment their usual shopping methods with online purchasing. This issue affects businesses of all sizes, from your local store to global retailers.
So what can we do it get what we want faster, and support the businesses that we trust and love? Well, you might try a pick-up alternative to normal shipping. An option like Pharmacy Click and Collect.
Pharmacy Click and Collect is an alternative to a standard delivery service, where online shoppers can elect to pick up their orders directly from a nearby pharmacy in as little as 2-hours from ordering.
So how does it work?
Simply go to one of your favourite online outlets (like IBD Medical) who will give you the option to go directly to the Pharmacy Click and Collect. (Otherwise, you can go to Pharmacy Click and Collect directly by clicking here).
Once at the Pharmacy Click and Collect page, simply enter your postcode, select a pharmacy near you and add items to your cart. Once you have everything you need you can check out. Once you check out and pay online, one of the members of the Pharmacy Click and Collect team will contact you and let you know when your order will be ready to be picked up from the pharmacy you selected. Your order will often be ready for collection in as little as 2-hours.
Both your order and payment are handled by Pharmacy Click and Collect. They will first arrange your order with the chosen pharmacy and once you have collected your order, Pharmacy Click and Collect will pass on your payments to the pharmacy.
