Pep has launched a new service called Paxi (as in ‘parcel taxi’) which allows consumers, agents, suppliers, and institutions to send, collect, and return parcels to over 2,000 Pep store Paxi collection points, according to Bizcommunity.

The retailer is making use of its large footprint in South Africa to enable consumers to send gifts, products, and documents from any Pep store to another – anywhere in South Africa.

The new service is expected to compete with the South African Post Office and is available from R49.95

To collect their parcels, recipients are required to provide adequate identification and the OTP they received via SMS, notifying them of the parcel’s arrival.

The service also comes complete with insurance and track-and-trace.
