Unlock ecommerce with Click & Collect
South Africans from all walks of life need access to reliable, affordable, and convenient delivery methods.
Research from StatsSA shows that employed people living in townships spend 15% of their gross salary on transportation. With the current cost of living, consumers are looking to stretch their budgets.
By partnering with local spaza shops, internet cafes, supermarkets, and petrol stations, Pargo Click & Collect gives consumers the ability to access ecommerce and save on transportation costs. Consumers can shop their favourite brands online and collect their orders at nearby Pargo Points in their area.
For people living in townships, a Pargo Point at their spaza shop means they do not have to spend money travelling to brick-and-mortar stores to do their shopping.
Instead, people can enjoy online shopping safely delivered nearby and collected when convenient.
This is a win-win as all parties benefit:
- Retailers reach a broader consumer base and spend less on delivery costs with consolidated deliveries which offer a 100% first-attempt success rate.
- Consumers who stay in inaccessible areas have their delivery challenges solved.
- Local shop owners receive an increase in footfall and in store Rand Spend. Research shows that there can be an increase in rand spend of about 30% in store.
With the township economy seeing continued growth and increased spending power, effective last mile delivery methods like Click & Collect is a critical factor in unlocking access to ecommerce, not only for shoppers but for retailers and small business owners as well.
