New website aims to Eradicate Delivery Costs
15 November 2011 - 10:33 by Mike Price
A new web site is being launched to encourage more people to shop online by eradicating what, according to the Royal Mail home shopping tracker report, is the number one reason people don’t shop online: the delivery costs.
FreeDeliveryVoucherCodes.co.uk is being launched in time for Christmas, with the aim of helping the nation to shop online without paying any delivery charges.
A Royal Mail home shopping tracker report tells us that the number one reason for shopping cart abandonment is the customer not being happy with the delivery charge.
The Free Delivery Voucher Codes web site lists voucher codes that can be used when shopping online to activate free delivery from some of the largest online retailers in the country, including Comet, Boden, Evans Cycles and Prezzybox.
Visitors find the voucher codes on the web site and enter it on the e-commerce site they are buying from to receive free delivery on their order.
The voucher codes are updated daily, and unlike other voucher code web sites, only codes that are valid and that can be used today are listed. Customers shopping online for Christmas and using free delivery voucher codes can save around £5 from each retailer they shop at.
FreeDeliveryVoucherCodes.co.uk has been set up by Edward Robertson Ltd, a web development company based in the North East of England, previously responsible for the Shopsafe web site.
Graham Miller, director of Edward Robertson, said: “According to the Office for National Statistics online shopping accounts for 9.6 percent of the total retail spend each month. We want to encourage more people to shop online by removing the number one barrier, the delivery costs.
