With the global economy struggling, and the cost of living rising, many are turning to online delivery services like Uber or Flipkarts Express delivery.
But for many of us, it’s the cheaper, easier and more reliable option.
We’re not alone.
We have a wide range of opinions on the matter.
Here are some of our most common complaints about these two companies: We’re paying more for delivery services, and we’re not getting what we paid for.
According to a recent report by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the cost per delivery is rising faster than inflation.
While it may sound like a minor detail, it could affect how much people are willing to pay for these services.
When you think about it, the cost is really what it comes down to.
For every cent you pay for a delivery, you are paying the driver and the courier, and a third party like a third-party logistics company.
And the company is essentially working on the same lines as a delivery company, providing the goods to a customer’s doorstep.
PwC says the average cost per day for a typical courier service is $1,600.
And when you factor in the costs of the drivers, the price of the goods themselves, and taxes and insurance, it adds up to a hefty bill for consumers.
“If you’re driving around and not seeing any traffic and not knowing how many cars are there, you’re not paying for the delivery,” said Andrew Smith, the CEO of Express Deliveries.
“The driver will pay you a little bit more than they would have if you were doing it all on your own.
The driver is doing it for you.”
If you’re paying a little more than you should, there are a few reasons why you might not be getting what you paid for, according to Smith.
For starters, if you’re a freelancer who has no access to insurance or payroll, or you’re in a tight financial situation, you may not be able to afford to pay more for a service.
You could also be paying for a ride in a vehicle that is less expensive than what the company would charge for the same amount of time.
This is a common issue that many businesses face.
It could mean that you end up paying a premium for the service, or that your business is getting more than it should be.
It can also mean that your delivery isn’t the right option for you.
In that case, you could choose a more efficient option like Flipkarta Express, which charges an average of $1.85 per delivery, according the company’s website.
And, if all else fails, there’s always the option to hire a courier company.
Smith says that he has been contacted by hundreds of customers that have found out that they paid for the goods without the service being available.
In fact, it took a company called Sausage Delivery, which offers a delivery service, to get a customer to give their name.
“It was a really good experience,” he said.
But even that experience can end up being short-lived if the courier company isn’t able to meet the delivery needs of a particular location.
For example, if there’s no traffic, you might be able’t pick up your goods.
If the customer is in a hurry, you’ll be late to pick them up.
Or if they’re in the middle of their commute, they may have to wait for a long time before they get back.
This could mean a longer wait time, and possibly a lower price.
When it comes to the logistics side of things, the costs can also vary depending on the region and the city.
For instance, if a customer is on the outskirts of a city, the drivers may charge a higher price.
In other words, if your city has higher demand, and it’s cheaper to deliver goods in the centre, you can likely save a lot of money.
And if your delivery is in the city, you should be able make more money by using a courier that offers more flexibility and cost effective options.
“We’re not making money on every delivery, and you don’t get to choose the delivery provider,” said Smith.
“You can’t pay for it and get a better delivery,” he added.
So, if that’s you, take a look at these options.
But, if not, don’t give up, as you can still save a few bucks and make some extra money on the road.
