It’s that time of year – yes, holiday shopping season! Whether it’s for you or for family and friends, online retailers are offering spectacular deals – especially on Cyber Monday. This online shopping “holiday” made its debut on Nov. 28, 2005, and has quickly become one of the largest online shopping days of the year.
According to comScore, the 2010 U.S. online holiday shopping season brought in a record-breaking $32.6 billion in retail spending. This marked a 12 percent increase over 2009. Cyber Monday made history when consumer spending exceeded $1 billion for the first time in a single day. As internet commerce continues to grow, package delivery is becoming an important element of the full customer experience.
After the leftovers from Thanksgiving are eaten and family and friends have traveled back home, maybe it’s time for a little online shopping. But while you’re online, make sure you also sign up for UPS My ChoiceSM, a new service that places greater control over home delivery in the hands of consumers.
You can choose from two levels of membership – Member or Premium Member. UPS My Choice provides convenient options such as phone, e-mail or text delivery alerts the day before a package is scheduled to arrive. And, if you are going to be away from home, you can electronically authorize release of packages that require a signature.
