UK online gifts and cards retailer Moonpig is taking advantage of Royal Mail’s new Sunday delivery service. The retailer started using the service ahead of this year’s Fathers Day.
Moonpig has been using Royal Mail since the year 2000. This year, the online retailer delivered over 60,000 gifts and cards. Royal Mail has introduced the service that applies to Royal Mail Tracked 24 parcels, in response to customer demand for quick delivery, seven days a week.
Tony Bannister, Shipping Director at Moonpig said: “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. We continue to work incredibly hard and keep innovating with our partners like Royal Mail to provide an exceptional service to our customers. 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’ve 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.”
Nick Landon, Chief Commercial Officer at Royal Mail said: “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.”
