Survey reveals online shoppers value reliable UK courier service
A survey from address autofill company Postcode Anywhere has revealed that a reliable online delivery service and a quick checkout are considered very important by many shoppers.
It found that 76 per cent of customers rate a speedy checkout process as important or very important to their experience, while almost 65 per cent want timed delivery slots to ensure their packages arrive at a convenient moment.
