UK shoppers can now buy items on eBay and pick them up in one of 650 locations at their convenience. The move will make online shopping easier for consumers who like to shop online but prefer to pick up their items in-store rather than pay a shipping fee and wait a few days.
The partnership includes about 65,000 eBay sellers that are expected to offer items for pickup at Argos by the end of the year. This number is expected to reach 80,000 in 2015.
“Retail has changed and shoppers are in the driving seat like never before,” said UK vice president of eBay Tanya Lawyer. “They want to shop any time, anywhere, on any device, and British shoppers love to click and collect.”
EBAY stock is up 0.77% Thursday afternoon.
