Costa Rica Post Office Aims To Be The ‘Amazon’ Of Costa Rica

With the launch of its Marketplace portal in August, the Correos de Costa Rica will offer local online purchases and deliviries

The Correo de Costa Rica (Costa Rica Post Office) is aiming to be the “Costa Rican Amazon”, with the August launch of “Marketplace”, a web portal that will offer articles by small and medium sized Costa Rican companies (SMEs), along with a payment soultion and delivery.

In addition, it will empower SMEs that market their products through social networks, carry out strategic marketing campaigns and implement QR codes, while the public will have direct access to local initiatives.

Access to “marketplace” will be available on any mobile device with an Internet connection.

Just like on Amazon.com, Marketplace will allow consumers to compare prices and products and once the purchase is made, receive the package at the location indicated.

The website will offer special prices on clothing, technology and more and easy access to the postal logistics network – 110 branches and 83 kiosks – and tracking packages for delivery.

The main difference over Amazon is delivery, in most cases, within 24 hours in the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM) and up to 72 hours to the rest of the country.

The Correos has actually been doing this for some time, but not all in one place. For example, through the Corros website consumers can access the Pymesxpress catalog, delivery of packages or pick up at its intelligent postal boxes and e-commerce solutions.

Advantage of buying local

Costa Rican ecommerce arises as a response to changes in the way people consume, with some added values compared to global competitors.

  • No customs
  • Deliveries in less time
  • Payments can by in cash or with a card
  • Local guarantees
  • Local customer service and support
