ParcelPal Enables eCommerce Sites Instant Delivery in Vancouver
Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) – ParcelPal Technology Inc. (“ParcelPal” or the “Company”), (CSE: PKG) has now launched their API (Application Program Interface) to enable online eCommerce platform services the ability to offer ParcelPal as a same day shipping method.
This year will be defining for eCommerce providers and their merchants, in terms of mobile supremacy. Predictions state that 2016 will mark the consolidation of the mobile era, with half of all consumers using their mobile devices to make transitions and thus growing the eCommerce industry – which is expected to reach 384 billion by year end. Local business can now integrate with ParcelPal and request deliveries through their website which instantly calls ParcelPal to fulfil the order. The company’s API can be installed within mere hours and customers can start requesting deliveries immediately. ParcelPal now directly solves the issue of high delivery costs and speed by delivering products to the consumers in the same day or less. ParcelPal aims to be the number one shipping option in Vancouver by year end.
The Company’s development team has already begun expansion of plug-ins’ for the largest eCommerce providers found in North America such as: Shopify, Magento, PrestaShop, BigCommerce and WordPress. The Company plans on recruiting couriers at the source of where eCommerce merchants are located and scaling to each location where demand is highest.
President and CEO Jason Moreau states, “The growth in eCommerce is resulting in a rapid increase in the overall demand for package delivery services. This continuing growth is making it challenging for retailers to effectively manage their supply chains to profitably fulfill orders. Specifically, the increase in e-commerce transactions is forcing retailers to manage smaller, more frequent orders, thereby shifting the focus of retail distribution centers from pallet picking for store replenishment to single-item picking for orders shipped directly to a consumer’s home. This consequence is compounded by the rising expectations of consumers who want their orders delivered quickly, which requires retailers to do more work in less time.“
“To help those (merchants) meet these and other challenges associated with fulfilling e-commerce orders, retailers are can now integrate ParcelPal directly onto their eCommerce website which offsets the exorbitant costs of shipping for a cheaper and much faster alternative. In many respects, the continued growth of e-commerce is likely to depend on goods consistently arriving on consumers’ doorsteps on time and at the right price.”
