Internet retailers must juggle many different tasks on a day-to-day basis, and one of the most important to the success of an e-commerce enterprise is shipping. The better and faster you ship product, the happier the customer, and the more money in your pocket.
For that reason, it's not uncommon for e-commerce platforms to spend a lot of time, money and energy developing solutions that make shipping more efficient and effective. But even then, they may not meet the expectations of users – at least not out of the box.
Fortunately, there are numerous software solutions that integrate with common platforms to support merchants' shipping initiatives.
One recent entrant into shipping software is Webgility, a company that is most likely best known for its e-commerce accounting software eCC. Webgility just released eCC Ship, a shipping software for optimizing order management and, in essence, automating the merchant shipping experience. The software downloads orders from more than 30 leading e-commerce platforms, including Amazon, eBay, Magento, BigCommerce, Open Cart and more, and generates shipping labels and packing slips for major processers such as FedEx, UPS and USPS.
