Moonpig extends Royal Mail delivery contract

Royal Mail has announced it has extended its contract with online cards, gifts and flowers retailer Moonpig.

Under the extended contract the majority of gifts sent by Moonpig customers will go via Royal Mail Tracked. Royal Mail has been delivering cards for Moonpig for the last 20 years since the company was launched.

In addition Moonpig is to use the new Royal Mail co-branded notifications feature to provide an improved brand experience for its customers.

Nick Landon, Chief Commercial Officer at Royal Mail said: “Moonpig has been doing a fantastic job keeping the country connected through the provision of high quality and personal gifts and cards for all occasions. We have a strong working relationship with the team and the new contract is a great opportunity for us to play our part by ensuring that we deliver them to friends and families across the UK through our trusted service.”

“We chose to work with Royal Mail as they offer a reliable service that people around the country know and trust. They were able to offer us fully tracked, later collections, the kind of flexibility that would ultimately benefit our customers,” said Tony Bannister, Shipping Director at Moonpig. “We offer the latest cut off time in the UK our customers can order cards and gifts up to 7pm each day for same day dispatch. This means that their orders can catch the post even after their usual Post Office has closed and the tracking for gifts can provide additional peace of mind to know when their gifts will arrive.”
