What is smart bidding?
Smart Bidding allows you to create any order at $7, the price will gradually increase to the original price of the order automatically all in the span of 25 minutes. You save money if a delivery partner accepts your order at lower than the quoted price.
Have you ever wondered if your delivery order could have been accepted and completed by a delivery agent for less than what you are paying now? “Smart Bidding” allows you to start any order from only $7, this price will slowly increase until a driver accepts your order or until it reaches the original price of the order (whichever comes first). Ensuring maximum savings everytime. Instead of dictating a fee according to distance, weight, etc, we allow our delivery partners to decide if the price is worth the trip.
I still don’t understand…
For example, you are trying to book a courier and receive a fixed quote of $14 after filling up the details. This is the amount you have to pay and there are no if and buts to it. However, with smart bidding, instead of paying $14, you start your bid at only $7. Slowly this price will increase periodically until a driver accepts your order. And if a driver takes your order at $10, voila! you just saved yourself $4. The price will never go beyond $14 as it is capped at the original price.
Sounds Awesome! How do i start?
Step 1) Create an order normally from the dashboard
Step 2) At the review page, simply click on the checkbox “smart bidding”
Step 3) Your order will start at $7 and the price will increase until a driver accepts the order. For this example, an express order was accepted at $10.16 from the original price of $16.80. A massive savings of $4.74 from a single order!
There are instances where an urgent long-distance delivery order originally priced at $30 is accepted and completed at only $7. With smart bidding, you can potentially save up to 80% off your delivery fees. Order with Ixpress and start saving today!
