Doorman set to revise pricing options
Doorman, the on-demand package delivery service, is reportedly set to revise its pricing plans in December. Doorman offers a service for online shoppers who want to reschedule their parcel deliveries. Consumers buying goods online give the retailer their “personal Doorman shipping address”, which is a location in the local Doorman depot.
Doorman sends notifications when the parcels arrive and the consumers use the Doorman app to schedule delivery to their homes at a time which suits them. Doorman delivers from 6 pm to midnight with hourly scheduling, seven days a week.
Currently, the company offers three pricing plans:
- a Pay as You Go service, with a $3.99 per package charge
- a $19.99 a month Silver Plan, which provides two-hour delivery windows and unlimited package deliveries
- a £29.00 a month Gold Plan, which provides one-hour delivery windows and unlimited package deliveries and return.
However, according to a report on TechCrunch, the company wants to revise its plans from December. The new structure will reportedly feature:
- an “A La Carte” (Pay as You Go) service, with a $5.00 per package charge
- a $19 a month Basic package, which will include up to five packages a month, and additional packages charge at $4.50)
- a $35 a month Plus package, with up to 10 packages month (and extra parcels at $4.50)
- a $55 month Pro package with up to 15 parcels a month (and extra parcels at $4.00)
- and a $89 a month Premium service (20 packages a month, and $3.50 for additionals).
Doorman’s founder and CEO, Zander Adell, reportedly told TechCrunch that the company was becoming a victim of its own success, as customers on the existing unlimited plans enjoyed the service so much they were ordering far more parcels.
