Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 15, 2012
1-800Courier, a leading provider of same-day delivery courier services and courier management solutions nationwide, announces a partnership with well-known shopping cart provider X-Cart.
This partnership allows X-Cart to benefit from the distinction of being the first shopping cart software to offer a same day delivery solution to its merchants and their customers.
As on- line commerce reaches record levels; customers now demand more and higher levels of service. Soon X-Cart members will be able to create a 1-800Courier account and have same day shipping rates available in their shopping cart during checkout. With 1-800Courier, X-Cart can now offer the ability to get on- line orders into the hands of customers within as little as two to three hours for deliveries within the local market of the fulfillment center.
“So much of daily commerce is now conducted on line and that percentage will only grow larger going forward. Customers want choice and sometimes they want their orders fast. The partnership of 1-800Courier and X-Cart provides a same day delivery solution that will benefit merchants and customers incalculably”, says 1-800Courier President, Mark McCurry.
At the X-Cart checkout, a 1-800Courier account can be set up in just five easy steps. If the delivery location is within the same day delivery area, the customer will be presented with 2 and 4 hour same day rates along with the estimated delivery time. Often, the same day delivery rate is the same or even less than the next day or two day delivery option.
Says McCurry, “We have built a bridge between the order process and same day fulfillment. It’s a win-win and definitely gives X-Cart a leg up on its competition.”
