Zalando launches "same day delivery" app

Zalando launches "same day delivery" app

German fashion web shop Zalando has now launched an app to facilitate the shopping experience, specifically for the "same day delivery" service it has been trialing in Berlin and Cologne for several months.

Fastest Berlin-based fashion app

Zalando has just launched Zipcart, a mobile application that gives the user more control over the moment of delivery. For now, the app is only available in Berlin and only for Android devices.

 

The so-called "fastest fashion app in town" guarantees a free same day delivery for all orders placed prior to 15h. The delivery will be made after 19h in and around Berlin.

 

When it started its "same day delivery" experiment in September, it had already announced plans to roll out this service all across Germany (and possible abroad) if proven successful. Whether the release of the Zipcart app means that expansion is near, has not (yet) been confirmed by Zalando.
