Tanya Lawler, Vice President EBay, John Walden, CEO Home Retail Group And Devin Wenig, President, EBay Marketplaces Announce Click And Collect At Argos Will Be Offered To All Eligible EBay Sellers In The UK (Photo: Business Wire)

Tanya Lawler, UK Vice President, eBay, said: “Retail has changed and shoppers are in the driving seat like never before. They want to shop anytime, anywhere, on any device and British shoppers love to Click & Collect. It’s a service being rapidly adopted by larger retailers and this partnership with Argos now gives tens of thousands of sellers the chance to capitalise on Click & Collect, even if they have no high street presence of their own.”

David Robinson, Chief Operating Officer, Argos, said:

“I’m delighted the operational trial in a number of Argos stores around the UK has been successful. The next stage in the agreement is to have more sellers, more stores and more volume to assess how we can scale this partnership for the benefit of consumers, Argos and eBay. Fulfilment is the next retail battleground and Argos’ unique model is well placed to leverage this.”

Notes to Editors

About the Click & Collect at Argos service on eBay

eBay and Argos have invested in technology that makes the service easy to use for both buyers and sellers.

For buyers, they simply choose ‘Click and Collect at Argos’ as the delivery option, where available, and select the store most convenient to them. They’ll receive a message when their item is ready for collection and once the item is available in store, they have seven days to collect it from a dedicated collection point in their selected Argos store.

Eligible sellers will be enrolled in the service and simply need to prepare their order for despatch as normal, with the technology taking care of the rest.
