What3words has put up a specific page on using what3words for contact-free deliveries, and how to add the 3 word address entry widget to e-commerce checkouts through its API. To make deliveries truly contact-free and as smooth as possible for everyone involved, customers now have the option to use what3words addresses to say exactly where they want their deliveries. Customers can use the free what3words app or website to find the precise what3words address for the safe place, entrance or delivery area they want to retrieve their package from. They can write the what3words address in the delivery instructions at checkout or in an additional what3words field.
When drivers get close to the delivery address, they enter the what3words address into the free what3words app using text, voice or scan, navigate to that exact 3m square and leave the package there. This means deliveries are more time-efficient, social distancing guidelines are observed and drivers and customers stay safe.
