TikTok Shop is integrating with Royal Mail Click & Drop service offering more shipping options for merchants on the platform.
TikTok Shop has today announced a new partnership with Royal Mail to help merchants of all sizes improve their delivery experience and thrive on the platform.
For the first time, merchants can integrate Royal Mail's Click & Drop service with their TikTok Shop account, enabling them to arrange shipments and get orders delivered to customers quickly and efficiently.
Click & Drop is Royal Mail's primary shipping solution. By integrating the service into TikTok Shop, merchants of all sizes can save time and improve the delivery experience. This includes seamlessly printing postage labels, which can then be dispatched on their existing Royal Mail collection, collected via Parcel Collect, dropped in a parcel postbox or taken to a Royal Mail Customer Service Point or Post Office® branch. Merchants will also be able to see their TikTok Shop orders alongside other sales channels, all in one place.
Click & Drop will be available to existing TikTok Shop sellers who install the Royal Mail Click & Drop integration from the Service Market in the Seller Centre, with merchants also able to easily set up via Royal Mail.
As businesses on TikTok Shop continue to scale, the Royal Mail Click & Drop integration will improve their shipping experience, speed up dispatch times and ultimately improve customer experience.
TikTok has been rapidly making headway into the ecommerce market, aiming at pre-owned luxury goods, trading cards, collectibles, sneakers, and refurbished electronics - the same focus verticals that eBay CEO Jamie Iannone has built his entire corporate strategy around.
They've also been pouring a lot of money in marketing and subsidized discounts to make a big splash for Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
