ASOS Marketplace launched in 2010 and since then it has become the leading online platform for independent brands and vintage boutiques selling online.
ASOS Instant – On Campus launched with Collect Plus and On the dot
ASOS Instant – On Campus has launched direct to Leeds University campus – and is free for ASOS Premier customers. The new ASOS Instant – On Campus means shoppers can buy something before lunch and pick it up from Leeds University Union Pop-Up, the CollectPlus Point by the Student Union, from 5pm that evening.
It’s an interesting service as ASOS Instant – On Campus involves three companies – the retailer, ASOS, a click and collect service, CollectPlus and a same day delivery service, On the dot. To meet the demands of modern day impatient shoppers retailers are having to partner with multiple businesses to stitch their delivery solutions together.
The same-day service is the first of its kind to be offered with CollectPlus and marks a new development in ASOS’ ongoing relationship with On the dot, which has partnered with ASOS to bring ASOS Instant same-day delivery to London, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham over the last few years.
How ASOS Instant – On Campus works
Students at Leeds University can now order by 12pm noon (Monday – Friday) for delivery later the same day. Packages will be available for collection from the Leeds University campus CollectPlusPoint (in the Union Pop-Up) from 5pm that evening until it shuts at 7pm
ASOS Instant – On Campus is free for Premier Delivery customers. Premier costs just £9.95 for a year and gives customers unlimited next-day delivery. For those who aren’t a Premier customer, same day Click & Collect only costs just £2.95.
Any unwanted items can be deposited at the CollectPlusPoint for free returns to ASOS and the service isn’t just for Leeds University students, anyone shipping to the LS2 postcode will see the option in checkout.
When an order is placed with ASOS, CollectPlus will keep customers up to date throughout the delivery process and will confirm when customer orders are ready to collect via email or SMS. Customers can easily track their orders using the CollectPlus app. CollectPlus will hold parcels for 10 days.
