SINGAPORE - With the e-commerce boom in Singapore, companies here are making it easier for online shoppers to collect their parcels when they are not home.

Here are three locations where your packages can be sent:

SingPost POPStations

People can pick up their parcels from SingPost's partner online retailers at nearly 80 POPStations - automated kiosks in places such as shopping malls and community clubs.

Cheers and FairPrice Xpress stores

Parcels delivered by DHL Express from any of more than one million retailers under American market place comGateway - including Amazon and eBay - can be sent directly to 17 Cheers and FairPrice Xpress stores at various locations, including Esso petrol stations and MRT stations.

7-Eleven stores

If a UPS delivery man is not able to reach you at your shipping address, he will drop off your parcel at one of the 20 participating 7-Eleven stores at Shell petrol stations, provided the package is from an overseas online retailer which collaborates with UPS. Parcels cannot be sent directly to the convenience stores.
