Online shopping is a trend that is popular around the globe. Even customers in developing nations like India are also showing huge interest in this new shopping technology.
Due to the problem of nonavailability of the customer at his destination address during delivery of the purchased commodity, probably gave birth to the ‘pick up center’ concept in the online shopping industry. During on online shopping many companies now allow customers to choose a pick up center where the shipment will be delivered. The customer then collects it from there at their convenient time.
I find this pick up service very much useful. Previously, whenever a parcel use to arrive I use to be in the office and had to rush to my home to receive it. Besides that, it was not possible always to leave workplace and go home to receive the courier. The pick up center concept was not there initially available at my locality so online shopping experiences were not sweet every time. Now there are multiple pickup points in my neighborhood and shopping online has become quite simpler. Nowadays, I simply collect my shopped item while returning back home from my office.
Nevertheless, everything have its own downside too. You should never forget to check your item properly at the pick up center to ensure that no parts are missing or broken. Also make sure you don’t mistakenly bring home the parcel of another person. In addition to that be careful if you are receiving a parcel on behalf of someone else or scenarios like that and make sure you are not being used as a mule to traffic drugs etc. in the name of online shopping. Therefore, stay vigilant.
Finally, you shouldn’t forget to carry your identity card which is generally required to be displayed at the pickup centers to get your shipment.
