HubBox launches Shopify app

Click and collect network HubBox has announced that it has developed a plugin for the Shopify e-commerce platform.

Any retailer using Shopify in the UK can integrate the HubBox plugin into their checkout after acquiring it from the Shopify app store. This will allow them to access the 3,000 outlets of the HubBox network nationwide.

Up until now, HubBox has been available through more than 30 retailers on Shopfy, including Yoga Rebel, Lazy Oaf and Maniere De Voir.

“Until now, the cost of development and the fact that most Click and Collect services are tied to specific couriers has inhibited widespread uptake,” said Sam Jarvis, CEO and founder at HubBox. “With the release of this plug-in, implementing Click and Collect requires literally no changes to fulfilment and has a timeframe which you can measure in minutes, not weeks”.

There is a flat, low monthly fee to use the service, which should suit retailers who move lower volumes of parcels. As well as the software, HubBox customers can also access technical support from the company’s London based team.
