Introducing Curbside with Uber

Since we created Curbside just over a year ago, shoppers have continually told us how much they love shopping local stores straight from their mobile phone and then picking up right at the curb for free less than an hour later. No hassles with parking, finding items on shelves or waiting in never-ending checkout lines have made battling the shopping wars easier than ever.

Yet, we all have those days where we absolutely need to grab something from the store but just can’t get out of the house. With Curbside and our friends at Uber, we’re here to help.

Today we’re introducing Curbside with UberRUSH, a new way to shop to make your experience easier than ever. Simply shop on beta.shopcurbside.com and then select the UberRUSH delivery option – currently available in San Francisco, Chicago and New York City – at checkout. Next, you’ll get a delivery window based on your distance to the nearest store. Then, a courier from UberRUSH will pick up your order and bring it to you.

For retailers, the handoff through UberRUSH decreases the time to fulfill customers’ orders and reduces overhead costs. Curbside’s retail technology already enables a world-class Curbside pickup option, but now it also connects retailers to great same-day delivery via UberRUSH. Combining Curbside technology with UberRUSH connects local stores to the next generation of mobile commerce, enabling brick and mortar retailers to meet customers where and when it’s most convenient for them.

Whether you’re a shopper or a retailer, Curbside and UberRUSH is a win-win. Shopping doesn’t get much easier than that.

Shoppers Love Convenience of ‘Click and Collect’

A recent survey by InfoScout found that while ‘Click and Collect’ services are new for many American shoppers, those that have tried a pickup service are likely to try it again.

Out of the 34.6% that have tried ‘Click and Collect’, 49% tried it for the first time in 2015 and 54% used it over the 2015 holiday season.

Why are shoppers increasingly adopting this new way to shop? InfoScout found that one word really stood out among survey respondent answers: Convenience.
