Last call for Christmas shopping on Allegro

December 19, 2020
  • Millions of products ordered on Allegro up until Monday (December 21st) will be delivered still before Christmas.
  • Offers are marked with a special badge.

This year autumn shopping festivals like Smart! Week or Black Week began the most busy time for Allegro’s business which will continue until Christmas. Deliveries are of course one of key challenges during such peaks. Allegro introduced this year a few solutions, like deliveries on Saturday, to make sure that every customer, even the very late one,  will receive the package on time.

Fast and reliable deliveries, in combination with free deliveries with Allegro Smart!, help us drive customer satisfaction and engagement. This year we are able to offer customers deliveries before Christmas for orders made as late as on Monday. Customers will be able to select such products through a special badge. - said Grzegorz Czapski, Business Development Director at Allegro. Online shopping for Christmas started a little earlier than usual this time around and will also last longer than usual as we will have 3 working days in the Christmas week. Allegro will help customers during that time  - added Grzegorz Czapski.

In the peak of the shopping season nearly 50% of products bought before 12AM will be delivered on the next business day, and nearly 80% of all orders will arrive within two days.  Customers in the bigger cities can also find a last minute gift even until Tuesday, by selecting from more than one million products with Same Day delivery.

For those who will want to do really last-minute Christmas shopping, there is also an additional option on Allegro. One can filter out and order items with a self-pickup from the merchant store in the given city. That will allow shopping by the very last moment.

Earlier this year Allegro introduced predicted delivery time on its platform, where customers can easily select offers with fast delivery. The feature is made possible thanks to machine learning and artificial intelligence, as hundreds of millions of transactions on Allegro are analysed in real-time directly from over 100,000 merchants and from logistics partners. This is a unique solution on a global scale for a marketplace. Thanks to this innovation customers shopping on Allegro always see a clear information about when their parcel will arrive.
