Same day delivery leader partners with Zapiet to seamlessly enable retailers running on Shopify to take advantage of nationwide delivery network

Menlo Park, California, UNITED STATES


MENLO PARK, Calif., April 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Same day delivery leader, Deliv, today announced a partnership with Zapiet that will enable retailers running Shopify sites to seamlessly add scheduled same day delivery powered by Deliv as an option at check out across 35 markets, covering 1,400 U.S. cities. This technology integration makes it fast and simple for retailers to offer their customers the ability to choose and schedule local delivery within specific delivery windows for the same day or up to 30 days in the future. A few of the current customers include The Organic Butcher of McLean, Petee's Pie, Rawkin Juice, Floral Galore, Mamma Meals and Birdytell.

“The Zapiet-Deliv integration changes the game for the hundreds of thousands of Shopify retailers by giving them control of same day delivery,” said Deliv founder and CEO, Daphne Carmeli. “We’ve learned that customers don’t often need to receive their goods within 20 or 30 minutes from when they’ve ordered. Instead, they need the flexibility to define the exact delivery window when they will receive their packages, and retailers need the appropriate notice to prepare the orders.”

Using the Zapiet plug-in, it is remarkably easy for retailers to successfully add and manage same day delivery service powered by Deliv. Retailers can configure same day delivery settings to meet their specific needs. Key features include providing the ability to:

  • Configure multiple stores at the individual store level
  • Customize days and times of service
  • Set the length of scheduled delivery windows
  • Determine delivery distance
  • Set limits on how far in advance orders must be placed
  • Limit the number of orders that can be placed per delivery window
  • Establish blackout dates when the retailer is closed
  • Specify conditions, such as allowing deliveries for orders under a certain weight, over a determined price, and from a particular product type, collection, vendor or tag.

Stores also receive notifications to alert them to online orders requesting same day scheduled delivery, and they gain full reporting capabilities, making it simple to track orders and their status. Additionally, customers receive an email notification when their same day delivery is on the way. Both retailers and customers can utilize Deliv’s GPS tracking to follow their delivery en route.

“Deliv’s same day delivery service was remarkably fast and easy to integrate. It lets us focus on providing the highest quality meat and seafood without getting bogged down running a delivery and logistic business,” said Don Roden of The Organic Butcher of McLean. “The service has tremendous potential to substantially grow our business. In fact, it’s already increased our revenue as some of the orders we’ve taken would not have been placed if it weren’t for the same day option. That, along with offering delivery seven days a week, is a huge convenience for our customers. They are thrilled that they can browse gourmet foods at their leisure and receive those items fresh at the time and place that fits their schedule. Given the success of this program, I’m already looking for additional space to expand.”

Deliv is the exclusive delivery service with Zapiet in the U.S., opening up scheduled same day delivery to hundreds of thousands of Shopify retailers.
