eBay will soon let you pick up purchases from 650 Argos stores

Matt Brian, @m4tt

If you love to eBay but are constantly making trips to the Post Office to collect a missed delivery, your nearest Argos store could soon come to your rescue. The two companies have extended their click-and-collect partnership, which began with 50 eBay sellers and 150 stores in September, to encompass 650 stores and over 65,000 eBay sellers by the end of this year. That means where the click and collect delivery option is available at the eBay checkout, you select your nearest store and pick up your purchase(s) whenever it's convenient. With Amazon installing more click-and-collect lockers across the UK, eBay also wants to fit around people's busy schedules. Argos gets more people in through its doors too, allowing it to do something that Amazon isn't able to (yet): get face-to-face with customers.
