Over 15,000 existing 3dcart merchants get the benefits of the FedEx integration with the added efficiency of FedEx SmartPost.
TAMARAC, FL (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
Today, FedEx officially certified 3dcart as a FedEx Compatible Solution. Merchants using 3dcart now have access to Fedex Web Services for real-time shipping rate calculations, label printing and tracking information. As an added benefit, merchants can now offer SmartPost shipping methods for less expensive and quicker residential delivery.
Over 15,000 existing 3dcart merchants get the benefits of the FedEx integration with the added efficiency of FedEx SmartPost. The SmartPost service uses the USPS to ship low-weight residential packages anywhere in the country at a lower cost to retailers.
To gain FedEx certification, 3dcart software engineers built a new integration using web services to replace the API integration that was discontinued this year by FedEx. FedEx representatives put the integration through a rigorous testing process. 3dcart’s integration passed the tests, gaining official certification status.
“At 3dcart, we’re constantly working to keep our partnerships active and up-to-date,” said 3dcart CEO Gonzalo Gil. “Our goal is to continually introduce new relationships with major ecommerce brands—but keeping our current partnerships close and fresh helps us stay on the frontlines of online retail.”
The tighter FedEx integration is just one of many shipping features 3dcart merchants use to make fulfillment more efficient. For more information on 3dcart shipping features, visit http://www.3dcart.com/shopping-cart-features-shipping.html.
