Zalora cash-on-collection in Singapore via 7-Eleven

Online shoes and fashion shopping platform Zalora has launched an interesting logistics trial in Singapore: Shoppers of the online retailer can select cash-on-collection as payment method and then select their preferred 7-Eleven store to collect their purchases and pay on spot. Shoppers will receive an SMS when the order is ready for collection upon payment.

This would be very for many people who cannot be at the delivery address at a specified time to collect their orders. Just last month, Online marketplace Qoo10 has announced a similar partnership with 7-Eleven to offer Singapore's first cash payment option for online shoppers.

"This is an exciting step for us as it can help those still apprehensive about online shopping get over that initial barrier. We hope that this collaboration can help us grow the market by increasing consumer confidence in e-commerce efficiencies," said Amanda Eng, marketing director for Zalora Singapore.

If this pilot trial is successful, the service will be expanded across all 570 7-Eleven stores in Singapore. Currently 19 stores are participating the trial including outlets Pasir Ris MRT, Causeway Point, Clementi Mall, 313@Somerset and Serangoon Central Mall.
