Pioneer online courier service ParcelHero makes its customers shareholders

Ten random customers will receive a share of £1,500 worth of free shares in hi-tech parcel delivery company

ParcelHero, the online international courier, is about to turn ten of its customers into shareholders! Thanks to ParcelHero’s online crowdfunding initiative, the hi-tech internet parcel delivery company is giving away £1,500 worth of shares.

Today thousands of people are becoming a new breed of shareholder, thanks to the growth of online crowdfunding. Crowdfunding enables ‘everyday people’ to buy shares in companies, and now ParcelHero is going one better, by giving ten lucky customers £150 in shares, each.

Ten ParcelHero customers who use the service between 6 October and 17 October, picked entirely at random, will win shares in ParcelHero’s parent group, Deliver Plus. The fast growing Group expects to grow revenues to £25.8m and profits to £3.6m over the next three years.

Many successful technology-focussed businesses like ParcelHero, are turning their backs on bureaucratic banks and adopting this exciting new funding method. It’s surprisingly easy for anyone with a little spare money to become an investor. Now the company, which is on track to raise £300,000 in exchange for an 8% share of the Group, will actually give some of those sought-after shares away.

ParcelHero founder and MD, Roger Sumner-Rivers explains: ‘We are looking forward to sharing our success with ten lucky random customers, we’ll announce the winners later this month. It’s a fun way of saying ‘thank you’ to our ever-growing number of loyal customers, and give them a slice of our success.’

The opportunity is open to everyone, from first-time customers to long-standing users. Visit to find out more. And if you don’t want to wait to see if you are one of the winning users, readers can find out more about buying shares from as little as £10 at
