BufferBox

In today’s environment, everyone shops online, typically for convenience. The problem? Failed parcel deliveries - being able to actually receive the purchases when they are delivered.

BufferBox has developed an automated, self-serve kiosk to eliminate the frustrations and hassle involved with failed parcel deliveries. BufferBox has successfully deployed our first kiosk that allows for 24/7 pick-up of parcels at a convenient location.

The kiosk supplies the user with a unique BufferBox address to have their parcel delivered to. Upon its arrival, the user is emailed a unique, one-time-use PIN code for the kiosk to retrieve their parcel on their schedule. The BufferBox service restores the convenience of online shopping.
