Just follow our FIND, SHIP, PICKUP process.

FIND – Select a convenient pickup point in your neighborhood – a local retail PickupZone partner like a hardware store, convenience store or dry cleaner.

SHIP – Following a free registration you will receive a customized shipping address with a unique identifier (this is how we notify you when your packages arrive). Use the pickup point address when shopping online, getting packages from friends and family or for your business needs.

PICKUP – We notify you via email once your package arrives. Just present your confirmation code to the local pickup point merchant and pickup your package at your convenience within 10 days.

It’s fast and easy and best of all - you'll never miss a package again! See our FAQ for additional info and start shipping!
