Hi Everyone,

We're rolling out a new shipping option in the Greater Toronto Area. InPost allows us to ship small orders (up to 10 lbs.) to a nearby locker for pick up from hundreds of different locations, available 24/7 using a PIN code to securely access your shipment.

This is a great option for anyone on a busy schedule that may not know when they're home to accept a delivery in person. If an order qualifies for InPost pickup, you'll automatically see the option available for you during Checkout. It will have a flat rate fee of $5.99 per shipment. Free shipping offers will also qualify for inPost pickup options if you'd like.

More information from InPost:

Have you considered offering reduced prices (as in the same as ExpressPost or Express Parcel) to those of us who use Canada Post FlexDelivery? Your system charges me extra to ship to a FlexDelivery virtual mail box, that I pick up at a Canada Post outlet because it sees "post office box" and thinks I am a rural customer. I'm not and FlexDelivery delivers to the post office or Retail Postal Outlet, where I pick up my parcel after showing ID. InPost isn't available outside the GTA, but Canada Post is. Can we get the same service?

DKS, when I have situations like that, I just list the box like it's an apartment.

112 - 330 Whatsitsname Avenue

Never had an issue with that being misunderstood by the receiving dept of the location either.

It doesn't charge extra, but it will disable free shipping options when it sees the PO box (since delivery options other than CP have been eliminated).

Coincidence - I just saw one of these at the grocery store. It was just installed. I've never seen one before and wondered what it was.

BTW I'm an hour away from the GTA, so it's not just Toronto. Looks like it's the Kitchener-Waterloo area as well.

FWIW, I have been using - and loving - my local InPost locker!

I'm in Toronto and I don't see the InPost option when I go to check out. I've tried several times with different items without luck. I'm currently trying to buy a $45 USB 3.0 PCI card so it's not something big or expensive.

A bit more playing around with the shopping cart and it seems that I can only get some items shipped to the InPost locker and not others. For example, I can get a Blu-Ray writer shipped and some RAM but not the USB expansion card or a HD.

So I used this service on an NCIX order recently. I saw shipping there was $2 less than to my house, and since I needed groceries anyway, why not?

The week I thought it would arrive I had to go away on a last minute business trip. I worried because they only allow 3 business days for you to pick it up. But I shouldn't have worried, because it ended up taking four business days from Markham to Cambridge, a distance of 106 km. Canada Post does this in a day on regular service. I could have walked back and forth that distance during that time period...a couple of times!

I will say that it was very easy to pick up, it has a very sensitive scanner that will pop open the door as soon as you put the QR code near it, you don't even have to carefully line it up. The screen said it took me 14 seconds. I like how secure it was and how easy, and sure I liked saving a few bucks.

However delivery sure was slow and that 3 business day return period could have been trouble.

I might try it again though. But for some reason a purchase I'm trying to make right now doesn't offer it.
