Use shipping insurance to protect your customers and your reputation

News, Tips and Tricks

Nothing wrecks an e-commerce shopping experience quite like "porch piracy". Unfortunately, data recently published by Experian indicates that shipping fraud increased 37% in 2017 with the Western U.S. experiencing an almost 60% increase! So while it's exciting to see e-commerce sales continue to soar with double-digit growth rates, shipping fraud is growing even faster and threatening to ruin the party.

Shipping quotes with line-level control find the best delivery plan for each order

New Features, Strategy

Using multiple fulfillment locations is an effective way to boost delivery speed and lower shipping costs, but the strategy introduces some thorny sourcing and shipping cost issues. For example, if you allow one sales order to source order lines from multiple facilities or drop ship to multiple customer locations, how can you quickly and accurately quote shipping costs for the entire order while rate shopping to find the lowest price for multiple required shipments?

Fortunately, the Pacejet RESTful API makes it possible to embed sophisticated shipment quoting and rate-shopping into any ERP system, allowing users to click one "easy button" for optimized delivery planning. To dig a little deeper into solutions for multi-site fulfillment, this post provides an overview and demo of Pacejet Shipping Quotes for NetSuite, a good example of a simple quoting and rate-shopping solution that supports some surprisingly complex order fulfillment scenarios.
