Have a parcel you need to send from the United Kingdom?
P4D (that stands for Parcels “4” Delivery, if you were curious) — an official courier reselling service — may have your back.
The United Kingdom-based company (which has been around for about eight years now) announced Monday that they are now accepting bitcoin payments for their services.
Those services allow consumers to ship packages on major couriers like DHL, TNT, City Link, and more. From small parcels to large pallets, the company’s services seemingly cover it all.
As stated in the company’s announcement:
[blockquote style=”2″]P4D emphasises the importance of being convenient, precise and user-friendly: accepting Bitcoin is a natural step in the evolution of this company ethos.[/blockquote]
In order to make use of bitcoin acceptance, the customer will be required to specify the collection area, destination, weight and other information and will hit the “get an instant quote” button. From there, they can complete their transaction.
The company explains:
[blockquote style=”2″]The search will show different options and price ranges from which the customer can select the preferred courier. No account is needed and by accepting Bitcoin P4D have made it even easier for customers to quickly and easily arrange a package to be couriered anywhere in the world.[/blockquote]
The customer can expect the courier service of their choosing to pick up the package, or it can be dropped at more than 7,000 locations throughout the country.
Convenient, indeed, many in the crypto-community would say.
It will be interesting to follow-up with the company in several months to see how they’ve made out with the solution. We expect to post an update at some point in the future.
