Chairish Introduces Drop Off & Go Service

Only Online Marketplace to Offer Packing and Shipping Service for Small Businesses and Online Sellers

PR Newswire

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., August 2, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Chairish, the design lover's indispensable online source for chic and unique decor, art, furniture, is launching Chairish® Drop Off & Go, a turnkey packing and shipping service that solves the most vexing obstacle to online selling for the home decor industry: the challenge of shipping.

Sized at over $260 Billion in annual sales, the US home furnishings category has historically been slow to move online, in part due to the challenges of shipping. This obstacle has been particularly pronounced for small businesses and private individuals, who comprise Chairish's selling community.

Chairish's Drop Off & Go service makes Chairish the first and only online marketplace to resolve this issue. The service is available to all Chairish sellers starting today.

Until now, sellers have had to carefully pack their sold items prior to shipping, requiring time, expense and expertise. Now, Chairish sellers can opt in to the Chairish® Drop Off & Go program where a professional packing expert does all the work, making selling online easier than ever.

Sellers using the Chairish® Drop Off & Go service simply print out their Chairish shipping label that includes a prepaid packing code, and drop off their sold item(s) at the nearest The UPS Store® franchise location. Chairish offers sellers a fixed packing cost, based on the size of the item. All items shipped as part of the program will also be insured against loss and damage with coverage provided to Chairish through UPS Capital Insurance Agency, Inc.*

"Chairish is committed to supporting the tens of thousands of small, US-based businesses that sell through our marketplace, and we're always looking for ways to make their jobs easier," said Gregg Brockway, co-founder and CEO of Chairish. "Sellers now have the ability to simply print out a shipping label, drop off their newly sold item and walk away knowing that their item will be expertly packaged, shipped and protected. That's a game-changer."

"As a small business owner who sells a lot of inventory on Chairish, I'm really excited to have the new Chairish® Drop Off & Go program," said Chairish Seller, Saliha Sulander. "Carefully packing items on my own is time, labor and cost intensive. Simply dropping my sold inventory off and letting professionals take it from there is going to be a lifesaver for me and reassuring for anyone who purchases from my shop Valley Farm Antiques of Essex. By being the first marketplace to offer this service Chairish definitely secures their position as my preferred online selling venue."

*Claims are filed through Chairish. Neither The UPS Store, Inc. nor The UPS Store® franchises are providing insurance, declared value or other coverage for the item, packaging or shipping in connection with the Chairish® Drop Off & Go program.
