3dcart merchants can now offer customers additional real-time domestic, international and freight shipping options thanks to several new carrier integrations that are now part of the eCommerce software platform.
In addition to offering UPS, FedEx and United States Postal Service real-time rate and shipping information, 3dcart now offers integration with DHL and TNT express for domestic shipments, as well as Canada Post and Australia Post for international. For store owners who ship less-than-truckload (LTL), 3dcart now integrates with Freightquote, Echo Global Logistics, Newgistics Freight Services, SAIA LTL Freight, Worldwide Express, Correios, and Startrack to provide real-time freight quotes for worldwide delivery.
“It’s important for merchants to not only offer their customers a choice when it comes to delivery options, but accurate shipping rates as well,” says Joe Palko, Chief Marketing Officer. “A business can lose money very quickly if they’re not quoting correct shipping prices. The real-time integrations we offer provide instant carrier calculated shipping rates that are based off of weight, size, destination and other factors the merchant sets up within their store.”
eCommerce store owners risk losing hundreds to thousands of dollars a year by not providing accurate shipping rates at the time of checkout. According to Palko, even a few cents an order adds up. “If a store owners is processing a hundred orders a day and is losing an average of fifty-cents an order due to inaccurate rates, over the course of a year that add up a loss over $18,000. For many merchants, that’s huge.”
With these latest additions, 3dcart now offers the most real-time shipping carrier integrations out of all the eCommerce platforms available, as well as shipping label printing for UPS, FedEx, USPS, Canada Post and TNT. Access to real-time rates are standard across all 3dcart plans and are available at no additional cost, unlike other platforms where carrier choices are limited and label printing is not available.
