Pgeon has recently introduced Pgeon Store, a programme designed to offer enterprising Malaysians a new and low barrier to entry opportunity to grow their business by turning their business premises into points for parcel drop offs and pickups.
By becoming a Pgeon Store Agent, MSMEs, SMEs and solo entrepreneurs alike will be able to expand eCommerce growth whilst simultaneously building exposure for their brands both online and offline by tapping into the millions of Malaysians that currently use last mile delivery solutions.
Through this initiative Pgeon is targeting to onboard 1,000 new agents by 31 Dec 2022 helping them tap into the global last-mile delivery market valued at over USD100 billion currently. This will lead to the generation of supporting income for verified Pgeon Store agents.
Speaking on the Pgeon Store solution, Clarence Leong, Founder and CEO of Pgeon said, “Many local businesses and individuals have suffered financially because of the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing restrictions. This pushed people into finding ways to earn multiple streams of incomes just to stay afloat. Even as more restrictions get lifted and the economy recovers, a multi-stream revenue model is a necessity in the new normal. Our Pgeon Store programme looks to provide just that for businesses and entrepreneurs – a secure additional source of income that comes with minimal investment and a big upside.”
Interested parties can become a Pgeon Store agent for as little as RM 1,000 starting capital.
Vetting for potential agents is done in as fast as one week and they can then start to operate as an agent earning as high as 50% commissions on a range of services including parcel drop offs, parcel booking as well as agent and top-up referrals.
The system also allows agents to earn further through the sale of packaging materials and supplies.
The Pgeon Store programme offers 4 tiers of partnership that cater to different needs and capacities of respective SMEs and entrepreneurs. The tiers include Lite, Standard, Plus and Caravan.
“With the Pgeon Store programme, we wanted to provide a highly accessible and flexible programme that would allow businesses and entrepreneurs from all levels to tap into this profitable segment. This is why we’ve made the barrier to entry low and provided several tiers -with just a mobile phone and as little as RM1,000 they can get started.” Clarence added.
The Pgeon Store programme also looks to assist agents by increasing footfall within their stores which in turn could boost performance of their primary business.
“We wanted the programme not only to act as a means of additional income but to further benefit these agents by converting their premises into drop off points that will encourage consumers to visit their physical stores. On top of this, through the programme we will highlight their premise on digital platforms – enabling them to gain marketing exposure both offline and offline,” he added.
The Pgeon Store programme is also aimed at making parcel drop offs easier than ever for a growing number of individuals and businesses that utilise last mile delivery services.
With added Pgeon Points created by the programme, users will be able to choose from an increased number of locations to drop off their parcels allowing them to potentially even just walk to their nearest point.
Established in 2018, Pgeon is a subsidiary of EasyParcel, Malaysia’s largest delivery service booking platform that has partnered with well over 60 companies across South East Asia. The service boasts close to 1,000 riders with 75,000 recurring customers and counting. In total the organisation has successfully delivered over 6 million parcels.
