Picup Launches on WeChat!

Deliver whatever. Whenever.

Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not thanks to picup, an on-demand delivery service, based in Cape Town and found on WeChat.

During its launch event, the who’s-who of Cape Town tech and journalism attended in their full glory to witness the inaugural event, which consisted out of loads of picup blue Margaritas, a real-life picup demonstration and a very endearing speech by picup’s founders.

“WeChat is more that just an IM platform and the introduction of their Official Account services makes it a place for people and business to transact. WeChat plans to drive users to the platform through the huge benefits of their Official Account services.”

Want to know more? Of course you do! To get started, open the WeChat app and search for PicupSA under ‘Add Contacts’ > ‘Official Accounts’ and then tap follow!

Choose the appropriate delivery vehicle dependent on the package (or whatever) you’re delivering – bicycle, scooter or car.

Once your goods have been collected, track your delivery online and once delivered, you’ll receive a notification. What’s more, we’ll only charge you once your delivery’s been completed – all via WeChat!

“Picup and WeChat are also meeting the challenge of offering simple, reliable and instant delivery services. Picup uses WeChat’s built-in functionality such as mapping and messaging to take the ‘schlep’ out of deliveries.”
