This service is a shop to shop service, however if both you and your recipient live near one then it's an amazing deal!

My nearest drop off points are all newsagents, it would be worth taking a look here to see where your participating outlets are: parcel2go.com/par…spx

The UPS Shop to Shop service allows you to drop your parcel in to one of their many outlets. When the parcel has been collected by UPS from your local shop, delivery will be made within 1-2 working days to the recipient’s pre-selected local UPS shop for them to collect. If your parcel is dropped off at your local Access Point before 12 noon it will have a greater chance of next day delivery.

It's a special Offer – limited to 10 parcels per customer and there is a 1kg weight limit.

Agreed, however I have used Collect+ send to store before no problem with eBay. It would be worth offering this as a delivery option on your listings in case anyone decides to take you up on the offer!

Very Important to remember.... the moment you use this you are no longer covered by 'seller protection' on ebay... it clearly states the parcel MUST be sent to the paypal registered address

you are saving money to potentially lose money, I have been asked before on ebay to use this, and got a torrent of abuse when refused...

Need to be clear, if the person signs for this and then says they did not, you are screwed, it is a instant lose

Good point! Thanks for this important info, I'll bear it in mind in future if I do offer this service on eBay.

I used this service last week and it was delivered to my friends store the next morning

Ok for small value light stuff then in big light boxes that cost a fortune as 2nd class royal mail.

nope, it does not mean anything.... if your ebay buyer had signed for it, then opened a dispute saying it was not him, paypal 100% side with him as you vetoed seller protection..

your fault, oh and the courier wont pay out as they will say it was delivered.... double hit

guess its a risk may think twice next time.

Parcel2go are on of the worst companies I've ever used if you need to make a claim a faceless company who take your money and screw you over even if your claim is valid, steer clear, you get what you pay for.

Interparcel do similar ups access point but for 5 kilos and about the size of a DVD player box for £1.29. with regards to eBay if you check all ups tracking inc this it states signed for by recipient and just shows town no full address. still risky though I have used it a few times but starting to get a bit wary of it now.

A buyer could change the address when going through checkout to get the item delivered to them at their local collect+ shop? never done it that way, but you can change addresses when buying on fleebay.

I don't see any problem in doing that, they might have to change their address in PayPal too as that's what is relevant to eBay Buyer Protection - I don't know if this is done automatically at checkout.

Does anyone know if this is the case?

Totally agree. Useless bunch of muppets. Have never used since they delivered something to a 'neighbour' and ebay buyer claimed they hadn't received it. That was me £140 out of pocket.

Isn't Parcel2go a delivery comparison website, not a courier? If you're referring to the courier services they offer I would definitely recommend avoiding Myhermes and Yodel, haven't had the best services with them to say the least.

I have found Yodel to be one of the best. Most of the other couriers when checked state they will not insure a plethora of items. If you send them it is at your own risk. I found this out with a Christmas decoration sent via City Link. Because it had some glass parts, no cover offered. This is also true of Hermes.

I think because Yodel use self employed couriers, the experience varies across the country. I have had many problems with them with parcels in the past however they are fine when one particular driver delivers (always on time, polite and friendly).

It's worth checking what the T&C and restrictions are when sending parcels, I know some companies can be very specific. I think Royal Mail have the most relaxed rules on what you can and can't send.

Don't know if this is now a new service by UPS specialised for Parcel2go? It's been there for months, 2 months, at least, as far as I can recall. Only limited to items under 1kg though, and shop to shop too.

Correct! Yodel uses self-employed couriers, so the quality of service varies. I remeber posting an urgent parcel using next day delivery service, and the parcel was held due to "courier away on annual leave". That was what it said on their website. The parcel was 2-day late (supposed to be there on Sat, but came on Mon). Anyway, at least my local Yodel courier is nice!

I hate Yodel,they left a parcel from Amazon in my recycling bin last week:|

Myhermes is getting much better overall. They always deliver my Next items to me and are very punctual. They also send Amazon stuff too. Yodel are also improving too where I am.

I would agree seeing a better service from them both quite recently, I have had an awful experience in the past with myhermes when it took 10 days to receive a next day delivery parcel- I ended up picking it up from the depot a half hour drive away!

After the number of complaints from retailers' customers, I think they're beginning to step up their service due to the likes of UPS Access Point and Collect+ providing cheaper and (for some) more convenient delivery.

No, they're a broker, not a comparison site, you pay them, not the courier, so your contract is with them if anything goes tits up, unless they've changed since I stopped using themm

By looking at the news with Amazon and Yodel, expect more of this!

Not a bad deal - however used the same service from UPS via interparcel.com last week to send a laptop from Birmingham to London. The problem I had was that the UPS store in London (a supermarket on Green Lanes, Haringay) refused the parcel, stating that they were no longer a UPS store! After a lot of ringing around, etc. we finally retrieved the parcel today. It cost 99p + VAT to send.

Used this. Brilliant service. Collect when you want no more waiting for useless delivery guys!!

shame it's only 1kg

DO NOT USE PARCEL2GO

AVOID THESE CROOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BUNCH OF THIEVES AND WONT REFUND YOU FULLY IF STUFF GOES MISSING EVEN IF YOU TAKE OUT INSURANCE

IVE REPORTED THEM TO THE REGULATORS AND WATCHDOG

I SEND UP TO 40 ITEMS A DAY AND USED THEM ONCE THIS YEAR AND THEY AND THE EQUALLY USELESS HERMES FAILED MISERABLY 100%

WHEN THINGS GO WRONG ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTACT THEM - HAD TO USE THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE

THEY DIDNT EVEN NOTICE IT HADNT BEEN DELIVERED, I REPORTED IT TO THEM AND IT TOOK THEM A MONTH TO RESPOND AND OFFER A REFUND. THEN IT TOOK 2 MONTHS OF BATTLES TO GET A NEAR FULL REFUND - THEY WONT REFUND THE POSTAL INSURANCE EITHER.

NO TRACKING (DESPITE WHAT THEIR SITE SAYS!!) AS THEY DONT KNOW WHERE STUFF IS AT ALL ITS A CON.

nb. my keyboard isn't broken - this company shouldn't be allowed to trade

AVOID HERMES, THEY VIA PARCEL2GO LOST THE ONLY PARCEL I SENT VIA THEM AND THEY COULDNT GIVE A DAMN - A RARE PAIR OF EXPENSIVE SPEAKERS WHICH ARE FAIRLY HARD TO GET

collect + or royal mail for me - then again a lot of these couriers use the same network anyway - its just some employ retarded muppets to do the delivery

Used this service last week only to be informed that the shop which the buyer had to pick up didn't know what he was talking about until he described the item then they admitted to already opening the parcel already as they 'Didn't know what it was' ... took more than a week to get there. Shambolic service Avoid like the plague ! You have been warned! I wont be using again that is for absolute certain. Hermes Are much quicker and the buyers so far have only said good things
