Shipping Rules: Automate choosing the right courier and service

While there are many important aspects of running an online retail business, ‘Shipping’ can be low on the list of priorities or avoided due to the complexities. However, Shipping can make or break a business.

Cloud Commerce Pro can greatly improve your businesses bottom line. Not only can you can develop and implement complex shipping strategies using the advanced ‘Shipping Rules’, but also save a considerable amount of time and effort.

What is your Shipping strategy?

As with most strategies in business, it is always best to begin looking at your competitors:

  • Do they offer Free Shipping?

  • What shipping couriers do they use?

  • What shipping options do they offer?

You may need to look at any specific product requirements, such as the item size and fragility. In addition, the volume you expect to sell should also be considered. This, along with the locations of where you will be shipping to will be deciding factors in which courier and service you choose.

In most cases, it can end up as a very complex setup depending on the products you sell. Even when you have your shipping strategy, implementing it with the flexibility to change on the fly can be the hardest struggle for most businesses.

To note, reducing your shipping costs can massively impact your business. That is, by either improving your profitability or passing on the cost savings to your customers to improve your conversion rates.

Our Solution

Cloud Commerce Pro’s Advanced Shipping feature removes the decision-making for your warehouse or packing staff. Notably, it sets complex rules about which postage service is best to use for any given scenario.

Rules are based on these attributes:

  • Location

  • Weight

  • Size

  • Quantity

  • Price

In most cases, you can select a specific service from multiple couriers in order to choose the most appropriate, efficient and cheapest option.

An example is sending parcels to multi-occupancy premises. In most cases, choosing a signed for service rather than sending standard delivery may be preferable. For this reason, an exclusion can be added to a Shipping rule that looks for the word ‘flat’ in the address, so changing the delivery service.

If required, the system has the flexibility to manually override Shipping rules at any time. However, this option depends on the user’s permissions.

  • We fully support the set-up and implementation of all rules for our customers.
