Postmates Debuts A Self-Driving Delivery Robot | PYMNTS.com
Postmates has stepped up its delivery game with a robot designed with eyes, turn signals and even the ability to yield.
Serve is a semi-autonomous rover that uses cameras and Lidar to navigate sidewalks, but also has a human pilot working remotely who can take control if there’s a problem. And a “Help” button, touchscreen and video chat display that allows customers or passers-by to call for assistance if needed.
Serve will be available in various cities over the next year, starting in Los Angeles. Customers can get their food deliveries by unlocking Serve’s cargo hatch with their phone or a passcode, or the robot can pick up food from restaurants and bring it to a Postmates dispatch hub so delivery people can take packages the last mile.

Amazon Teams With Cops To Catch Crooks | PYMNTS.com
Police in Jersey City are partnering with Amazon on an operation aimed to catch thieves stealing holiday packages from residential homes. Law enforcement is installing doorbell cameras and planting dummy boxes with GPS tracking devices at homes around the city — and it has managed to catch someone on the first day of the operation.

“We had a box out on the street for three minutes before it was taken,” said Police Capt. James Crecco, according to CNBC. “We thought it was a mistake at first.”

While it’s unknown how many people are the victims of package theft, a company commissioned by insuranceQuotes.com estimated that 26 million Americans have had a holiday package stolen from their home. Amazon, UPS and FedEx all declined to provide figures on how many packages are reported stolen or missing.

Deliveroo Debuts Brick-and-Mortar in Hong Kong | PYMNTS.com
Online food delivery startup Deliveroo has opened a physical restaurant in Hong Kong, according to a CNBC report.
The restaurant serves online and in-store customers, and if it’s successful, the company has plans to grow the concept globally.
The Deliveroo Food Market will operate as both a kitchen for delivering orders and a customer-facing location where patrons can pick from 15 different dining concepts.
The food market concept extends the company’s Editions program, a concept that has actual kitchens hosting 100 participating restaurants in shared spaces all over the world. Those kitchens are in what the company considers strategic neighborhoods, and the restaurants operate without the costs tied to running an actual restaurant.

5 Big Takeaways from Black Friday 2018 | Street Fight
1. Brick-and-mortar foot traffic appears to be down. Estimates range from a virtually negligible drop of 1% to more steady declines of 5 to 9%. That would mark the continuation of a disappointing trend given the effort retailers are putting into reversing the negative inertia of the past few years of in-store shopping.

2. Where’s all that offline spending going? Online, of course. Adobe Analytics reported that $6.22 billion was spent online on Friday, marking a whopping 23.6% jump over the previous year.

3. It’s not as simple as a zero-sum competition between online and offline. Industry analysts posit that emerging omnichannel approaches to retail played a big factor this year, as consumers took advantage of options like ordering online and picking up in-store.

4. Mobile continues to take a larger share of the e-commerce pie. Over thirty-three percent of online orders were placed on mobile this year compared to 29% last year, Adobe indicated. That amounted to over $2 billion in sales.

5. Free shipping is an indispensable strategy for online retailers looking to stay ahead. According to Deloitte, 88% of shoppers prefer free shipping to fast shipping, and a whopping 47% of shoppers who said they’d shop in-store attributed that decision to a desire to avoid shipping costs.
