Delivery-saver schemes continue to grow in popularity, says GlobalData

As the year comes to a close, delivery-saver schemes are a topical issue. The festive period is a busy time for retailers and manufacturers, and these schemes are only increasing their workload.

GlobalData’s UK: Retail Channel Series: Delivery saver schemes – 2019 explores such schemes, and provides a comprehensive snapshot of the consumer dynamics and spending habits of their subscribers.

Loyalty points and free gifts are the biggest drivers in encouraging consumers to subscribe to delivery-saver schemes

Two types of schemes are explored in GlobalData’s report, including patterns of use at retailers and consumer attitudes. Subscribers to online food and grocery delivery-saver schemes rose from 35.1% to 37.0% during 2018-2019; most subscribers were females aged 25-34 years. The most common subscribers to non-food delivery-saver schemes are aged 16-34 years.

Highlights of this report include:

  • Key drivers to entice new subscribers are loyalty points and free items
