Product Shipping; Easier & Cheaper with Shopify
Retailers leveraging the Shopify have one less thing to worry about this holiday.
The multichannel commerce platform launched a shopping solution, through an integration with USPS, that will enable merchants to purchase and print discounted shipping labels directly from within the platform.
Merchants will be able to buy shipping labels through the platform at referred rates via USPS - up to 60 percent lower than retail rates. Merchants also now have the ability to either drop prepaid shipments off at USPS offices or schedule pickup.
“Shipping is a fundamental component of any online merchant’s workflow. We’re focused on streamlining shipping and product delivery for our merchants, so they can focus on other aspects of growing their business,” said Louis Kearns, Director of Product and Merchant Solutions at Shopify. “With Shopify Shipping, not only are we saving merchants time and money, but we’re also giving them the foundation they need to perfect their fulfillment strategy. We expect to expand these benefits to merchants in other geographies with additional shipping providers over time.”
