Why Your San Diego Retail Business Needs Same-Day Delivery 

Retail businesses are always faced with the challenge of staying top-of-mind. With so many stores vying for their attention, consumers in the San Diego area expect exceptional services whether they’re shopping in-store, purchasing online or placing an order over the phone.

Customers are also used to the convenience of ordering from online retailers and having items delivered to them quickly – some even same-day.

To excel in such a competitive environment, it’s imperative that you bring the best of both worlds – personalization offered by an in-store experiences and the convenience of having their orders delivered to their doorsteps within hours – to your customers.


Offering same-day delivery is more than paying lip service to “customer experience.” It’s been found to have a significant impact on sales and revenue. According to a survey by Dropoff

• 97% of participants say speed is at least “somewhat important” in their purchasing decision.
• 43% of shoppers said they expect companies to deliver faster than they did a year ago. 
• 53% of consumers have abandoned a shopping cart due to slow delivery options.

Whether your customers prefer to shop online, over the phone or in-person, a same-day delivery option will increase the likelihood that they make a purchase and increase loyalty to your store.

For many local retailers, however, incorporating this “last mile logistic” into their business model can be quite challenging.

We understand that many local retail businesses don’t have the scale and volume to make operating their own delivery fleet a viable solution. Plus, covering the entire San Diego area, in which traffic can be unpredictable at times, can be daunting.

Yet, generic delivery services offered by UPS or FedEx aren’t projecting the desirable brand image or creating a bespoke experience that reflects your brand.

To make same-day delivery work for your business, consider partnering with a local courier service that offers on-demand deliver, 24/7/365.

Our team of Dropoff is proud to support San Diego retailers to make same-day delivery a viable option for their businesses.

Our robust API integration connects your POS or warehouse management software directly to our backend system. We’ll handle your delivery as soon as an order is placed so you can focus on servicing your customers instead of getting caught in logistic nightmares.

You can track your packages on a live map, and get real-time updates on the delivery status. Signature verification emails let you know that your items were delivered to your customers in good condition and within the guaranteed time frame, so you can rest assured that nothing falls through the crack.
