Online retailer Amazon has teamed up with Barclays to use some of the bank’s branches in London as collection points for customer orders.
The move is part of the e-tailers trial of delivery lockers across London, as part of its click-and-collect network to make it more convenient for its customers to receive their orders.
Amazon already has hundreds of click-and-collect sites across the UK, allowing consumers to pick up their orders from Post Offices, newsagents, local convenience stores, petrol stations, train stations and now banks.
Amazon hasn’t confirmed how many Barclays branches are involved across London, just that if the trial is successful that the plan could be rolled out across the Barclays network.
The initiative is also part of an effort by Barclays to keep its high street presence relevant in a digital world.
