Webgility, which provides Quickbooks integrations for merchants, announced it is now part of the UPS Ready Program – completing the certification for its product eCommerceConnector (eCC). Merchants are continually looking for ways to make the shipping process more efficient (and less expensive) but there seems to be little in the way of development for the most part from the platform side.
Webgility previously supported UPS WorldShip, an application for PC’s that gave merchants the ability to access UPS services and generate UPS shipping labels. There were some limitations however, so as a certified UPS Ready software, eCC can integrate directly with UPS web services and provide shopping services directly from eCC.
"Our previous integration with UPS was dependent on the WorldShip software and the XML interface was limited. With UPS Direct, we can now provide a seamless integrated shipping experience for our customers and the feedback since launch has been tremendous. We're also able to provide multi-package, bulk shipping, tracking and address validation features which are essential for increasing fulfillment efficiency and reducing shipping errors," says Parag Mamnani, Founder and CEO of Webgility.
eCC enables eCommerce merchants to automate order fulfillment, inventory management and accounting process. The QuickBooks Gold certified software integrates with QuickBooks and QuickBooks Point of Sales, online shopping cart and marketplace platforms including BigCommerce, Magento, Pinnacle Cart, Amazon, and eBay to name a few, as well as payment processors like Authorize.net, PayPal, and QuickBooks Merchant Service) and major shipping processors (UPS, UPS WorldShip, etc.).
