Delivery & tracking online, getting the product to the customer


Once an item has been purchased from the JD sport website there
are three main way in which the delivery is carried out. There is the standard
delivery, next day delivery, premium next day delivery and click and collect.
Standard delivery usually involves paying £3.99 on any order that is less than
£60 and if it is over the delivery is free. Next day delivery involves paying a
fee of £4.99 minimum regardless of the overall costs of the products but does
have the added bonus of being delivered in a set window of time for the next
day. Premium next day delivery involves a fee of £5.99 and comes without an allotted
delivery time the next day. Click and collect just sends the order to the
nearest pick up point and has no extra fees involved. The site7
also includes the function of being able to track where your delivery has gotten
to, using either email alerts, account usage or both.







ITunes – Delivery
& tracking online, getting the product to the customer


ITunes does not require people to have their music delivered
directly to their door. Instead it uses the internet to send the music and/ or
film files to the device that has paid for it. This gets rid of costs for
transport but does cause a slight increase on maintenance of the servers that ITunes
runs off. This allows for the music to be instantly sent over the internet into
the device that the user wants to have their music on. This allows for them to
have the music quickly, easily and efficiently, whilst also showing how long it
will take to fully complete its download.

JD Sports –
getting the product to the customer


The JD sports app Functions practically in the same way that
the website works, with the ability to find and order products only from a
smartphone or tablet. It allows for a much easier time in ordering and finding things
for those on the go, not requiring a person to bring a laptop around with them
to order a new pair of trainers. It also allows for people to find things much
easier with an intuitive layout that works much better for mobiles than it does
for PC’s or laptops.






ITunes –
getting the product to the customer

The iTunes application allows for ease of access into a wide
range of music, films, books and games with ways to narrow down what users are
trying to find to specific genres, artists and popularity. This is a very useful
way of doing things as it helps customers get to what they want to buy and
prevents quitting and going to a competitor’s website to find a song due to frustration
and the layout and design of the application.
