Internet retailers must juggle many different tasks on a day-to-day basis, and one of the most important to the success of an ecommerce 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 ecommerce 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 ecommerce 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 ecommerce 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.
