How to Get an “A” in E-Commerce Subscription Services
Your E-Commerce Shipping Deserves Worldwide Express
As an e-commerce business, you rely on your product to draw consumers to your site and on customer service to make them happy. But there's more to it than that. You also need dependable shipping and reliable e-commerce technology. When everything runs smoothly, chances are you'll see repeat customers. Any mishap and you might lose them for good. That's a risk you shouldn't take lightly.
It takes the right tools, service and expertise to make it all come together. If e-commerce shipping and technology aren't your strong points or you don't have time to oversee them, you need partners to handle them for you. Look no further. Shipping and technology might not be in your wheelhouse, but they are in ours.
Get discounts on your e-commerce shipments
We work with UPS® to give you access to dependable shipping services and affordable rates for both your B2B and B2C e-commerce shipments. Your options are practically endless. Here are a few to get you going:
- UPS SurePost® connects you with U.S. Postal Service for economical, final-mile delivery of lightweight, low-value shipments.

Keep your business running efficiently with the right e-commerce shipping technology
From the moment consumers click onto your website to when the package is delivered at their doorstep, your entire system must be in sync. Your website must know what inventory is available. Your shipping platform needs to know where to deliver the order and what service to use. Things can quickly get out of whack if your systems aren't communicating with one another. We've got the e-commerce shipping tools to help keep the communication lines open.
Our shopping cart plug ins deliver your negotiated Worldwide Express rates directly to your point of sale for accurate shipment pricing. Or if you prefer a deeper integration to your ERP, one of our platform partners can connect it to SpeedShip®, our proprietary transportation management system (TMS), via an API. Either way, you'll find managing your shipping effortless when you're given the tools to:
- Import customers' orders automatically into your system
