What is Deliver 2 Me?

Wumdrop has developed the world’s first delivery solution which delivers to the real time location of your mobile phone, allowing you to choose the hour that you would like your order to be delivered, at the exact location you will be, regardless of whether or not that location has a street address.

Unlike any other delivery service, Deliver 2 Me delivers to people not a location on a map.

Available to retailers via integration with WumDrop’s API, Deliver 2 Me represents a significant leap forward in business-to-customer delivery, particularly across Africa, where address data can be highly unreliable.
“What makes this technology remarkable is its scalability. Deliver 2 Me isn’t locked into a native mobile app like most geolocation services – it leverages the increasingly powerful suite of features found in mobile browsers to deliver an accurate delivery location to the driver, and a clean, easy to use interface to the end user.” – Wilson Canda, WumDrop CTO.

HOW IT WORKS

Place your order, and choose the Deliver 2 Me option.

When your parcel is ready for delivery, you’ll receive an SMS with a link to the Deliver 2 Me mobile web app.

You can either choose “deliver now” or  “deliver later”.

 

 

Never

Choosing Deliver now will allow you to drop a pin or type in a specific location.

 

Choosing Deliver later will allow you to choose another time or day when you’d prefer us to SMS you to kick off the Deliver now step above.

 

Another feature to this innovation will allow you to change your location while your delivery is in transit, Deliver 2 Me will let you automatically drop a pin at your new location, where your package will then be delivered. This gives you the assurance of never having to miss a delivery again.

 

Available in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Durban.
