Velocity has announced that its members will no longer be able to earn points with Sendle after 30 June 2023. Points will continue to be paid on deliveries up until 30 June 2023.
You’ve been able to earn Velocity Points when using the services of Sendle for the past few years. From 16 September, you will be able to earn even more points sending parcels.
Prior to 16 September, Sendle offered 1 Velocity Points per dollar. From 16 September, Sendle increased the earn rate. The new earn rates are as follows:
Who or what is Sendle?
At its heart, Sendle is a parcel delivery service. They provide a door-to-door service and offer low national flat-rates, along with active support, tracking and carbon offsets.
They provide their delivery service by leveraging other delivery networks. For example, they may utilize another provider, such as Toll, in delivering parcels. In doing so, they aim to deliver parcels at a cheaper price than Australia Post offers.
Sendle offers a range of plans, designed for different market segments.
- Standard – aimed at individuals that need to send parcels,
- Premium – designed for small business
- Pro – an offering for larger businesses.
Velocity Points are offered on the ‘Standard’ or ‘Premium’ accounts. The Pro account, being more corporate focussed, does not earn Velocity Points.
For most personal use, the Standard account will be sufficient. While it does cost more to send parcels, the benefit is that there is no minimum monthly requirement on how many parcels you send.
