Moonpig has introduced Sunday deliveries to ensure its personalised cards and gifts can be delivered on the day, every day.
The retailer has signed up for the Royal Mail’s new Sunday delivery service and says that this Father’s Day some 60,0000 cards and presents were delivered on the day itself.
Tony Bannister, shipping director at Moonpig, says: “We have an intelligent operations network that enables us to have the best range and the latest cut off times for personalised cards and gifts anywhere in the market.”
He adds: “This was a significant milestone to allow our customers to send cards and gifts for the first time that arrived on Father’s Day itself, making the day even more special for Dads. We had a record breaking Father’s Day this year, with well over a million Dads receiving a card or gift from Moonpig. The response on social media has been overwhelmingly positive, with smiling faces and happy families all around the country.”
The new seven-day delivery service, available to major retail customers, is part of the Royal Mail’s response as customers now make more of their retail purchases online. Customers can now order gifts on Moonpig until 9pm weekdays and 4pm weekends for a tracked one-day (Tracked 24) parcel delivery, while cards can be ordered until 9pm on weekdays and Sundays for tracked one-day parcel delivery, or 7pm weekdays and noon on Saturdays for standard first class orders.
Nick Landon, chief commercial officer at Royal Mail, says: “We have been delivering for Moonpig for many years and have now extended our partnership to a seven-day service. We always listen to our customers and Sunday deliveries has been one of the services they have been asking for. The UK already trusts us to deliver their purchases six days a week both quickly and conveniently. Now our posties are doing the same thing seven days a week.”
