Today, Yelp users can shop online at CVS and schedule a convenient time to pick up their order. All of this happens within the Yelp app, and it’s thanks to our new Yelp Platform partnership with Curbside, a company that powers online ordering and pickup for several Fortune 100 retailers. The functionality will be available at thousands of CVS retail locations nationwide.
Now, you’ll know the store has what you need with real time inventory updates, and you won’t even have to hop out of the car to grab it. No more getting distracted by the snack aisle and 37 different types of hair gel on your way to pick up a tube of toothpaste. That’s shopping efficiency at its finest!
While restaurants might be the first thing that comes to mind when you think Yelp, shopping is actually our largest category of reviewed businesses. By partnering with Curbside, we’re hoping to make it even easier for people who are browsing on Yelp to go ahead and buy. We plan to add the online shopping and pick up feature to additional retailers and businesses, including a limited rollout with Pizza Hut, which is already live in select markets, through the Curbside partnership as well. From buying tickets to a baseball game to ordering flower delivery and booking tee times, Yelp Platform offers consumers the ability to seal the deal across a wide range of business categories.
That’s more revenue for local businesses and more convenience for consumers — a win-win by any account. Software companies who are interested in the Yelp Platform partnership program can email email@example.com to find out more.
