GFS launches new delivery option tool in open source widget format

Parcel and carrier manager GFS has launched its delivery option tool, used by companies such as Mamas & Papas, Molton Brown and Liverpool FC, in open source widget format, allowing access to the full DPD Pickup network and enabling retailers to more quickly add it as an option at checkout.

The free delivery options plugin GFS Checkout gives online sellers the tools to beat shopping cart abandonment from lack of delivery choice, improving the shopping experience and winning them sales. Services available include; next day, timed, international and click + collect, with access to all DPD Pickup locations.

GFS claims it can also future proof click and collect options since it automatically adds new store locations as and when they are released, without the need for any code changes, ensuring consumers have access to the very latest delivery services in their area without draining development resources.

“The implementation of GFS Checkout has given our customers control of their delivery experience,” said Heather Ellis, Mamas & Papas’ distribution manager. “They can now choose when & where they receive their goods ensuring that Mamas & Papas customers can benefit from both the convenience and flexibility of different delivery options.”

Peter Liu, managing director for GFS Technology, said: “We have distilled our 15 years of knowledge and experience into this simple to implement web widget. It gives online sellers the tools to offer delivery service options specific to the consumers address, ensuring a standout experience.”

The open-sourced widget can be applied to a checkout quickly, helping retailers swiftly optimise their delivery page.  It can be customised to fit brand guidelines and full help and support is all available through the newly released developer portal: developer.justshoutgfs.com.
