eBay customers who choose Click & Collect at checkout now have access to 1,200 Hubbed locations to pick up their orders.

Hubbed is the leading carrier-agnostic collection point network providing parcel pick-up and drop-off (PUDO) services to e-commerce customers. Recent research from Hubbed suggests that almost three quarters (72%) of shoppers prefer to pick up their parcels from an after-hours location such as a service station or pharmacy.

eBay Australia senior director, David Ramadge said the retailer is pleased to add Hubbed to its Click & Collect network. “The partnership will expand our reach, enabling even greater coverage to buyers in regional areas with 85% of Australians able to access after-hours delivery options when shopping with eBay.

Hubbed CEO and founder, David McLean said there has been significant growth in Click & Collect over the last year, due in part to the acceleration of e-commerce sales.

“Hubbed is pleased to further broaden eBay’s Click & Collect network. Our research shows that customers also prefer locations that are reliable, secure and increasingly support sustainability by reducing the number of journeys made by couriers to individual homes.”
