Tamarac, FL (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
3dcart, a growingly popular ecommerce solution, announced today that it has recently joined forces with 71lbs, a company dedicated to automating shipping refunds with a simple, powerful solution.
If a FedEx or UPS shipment is delivered late -- even by 60 seconds -- ecommerce merchants are entitled to a full, money-back refund. Every year, nearly $2 billion in money-back-guarantee refunds go unclaimed, a fact which has cleared the way for 71lbs to build a robust compliance engine designed to automatically audit and claim refunds for its customers.
“The features now offered by the new 71lbs application are amazingly effective at saving ecommerce merchants time and money. Now, 3dcart store owners will never again have to worry about filing money back claims manually if their chosen shipping provider fails to deliver on time,” said Jimmy Rodriguez, CTO at 3dcart.
The 71 Pounds application is available for request in 3dcart’s App Store, and with no long-term contracts, credit cards or hidden costs associated with the service, every ecommerce merchant should consider adding it to their online store(s).
“Our service is particularly valuable to ecommerce merchants, where shipping costs typically account for 10% of sales,” said Jose Li, Founder and CEO at 71lbs. “Our goal is to save ecommerce merchants time and money so they can focus on what really matters, growing their business.”
Together 3dcart and 71lbs are making ecommerce easy for everyone.
