Convenience Stores: How to Increase Revenue with Parcel Pending by Quadient’s Open Locker Network

As a convenience store owner, you’re likely interested in ways to increase revenue without taking on additional risk. Becoming a Host in Parcel Pending by Quadient’s Open Locker Network can be a great option for your business. Here’s why.

Guaranteed Rental Income

First and foremost, becoming a Host in the Parcel Pending by Quadient Open Locker Network allows you to earn guaranteed additional income from rental of underutilised, or unused space. This can be a great additional revenue stream for your business.

Increased Brand Awareness

Because Parcel Pending by Quadient is the only carrier-agnostic parcel locker provider, you’ll benefit from brand awareness from up to five of the major UK carriers, including Evri, DPD, Royal Mail, DHL, and UPS.

No Installation or Maintenance Costs

For even more peace of mind, Parcel Pending by Quadient covers all installation and maintenance costs, so there’s no upfront investment required from you.

No Additional Labour Required

Because the lockers are automated, you won’t need to manage them yourself, or hire any additional labour. Carriers deliver directly into the lockers, and consumers are able to self-serve.

Increase Foot Traffic

In addition to the financial benefits from rental of the space, becoming a host can also bring in new customers and increase foot traffic to your store. 34% of consumers would use businesses more frequently if they hosted a parcel locker.

Additional Spend

Consumers are significantly more likely to spend money with a business that hosts a parcel locker, with up to 54% more likely to make a purchase, and 21% spending £20 or more. That’s a huge potential increase in revenue for many small retail stores.

Improved Customer Service

When placed outside your store, the locker system also provides a 24/7 convenient option for customers who might not be able to pick up their packages during your store’s operating hours. This can help improve customer satisfaction and loyalty, which can have a positive impact on your business in the long run.
