The Paz Group's chain of Yellow convenience stores has entered the world of internet commerce: The company's gas stations will soon offer a locker service, open 24/7, for collecting packages throughout the country. The service, called Yellow Box, is expected to compete with similar services in Israel such as Boxit and the Israel Postal Company.

As part of the service, Yellow has placed electronic lockers in numerous branches around the country (from Austrian company KEBA) to which products purchased online can be sent. The lockers will be placed at the front of the Yellow convenience stores in well-lit areas and will be protected by security cameras 24 hours a day. The packages can be collected throughout the day using a personal code sent via email or text message. Upon receiving the code, a customer can collect the package within three business days.

As per an agreement that Paz made with UPS, customers using the UPS delivery service will have the option to request that all packages be delivered to a nearby Yellow Box.

Yellow has also announced its collaboration with the Moshavnik company which will allow consumers to order fruits and vegetables online and collect them at one of the chain's stores throughout the country. The price of a minimum purchase is expected to be 150 NIS, about $40, but customers will not have to schedule deliveries, wait for messengers or pay shipping charges. The service will begin operating between Nahariya and Be'er Sheva.
