SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sendle, the 100% carbon neutral shipping carrier designed for small business, has launched a new integration with WooCommerce, bringing millions of online sellers a new streamlined way to ship, in time for the biggest eCommerce holiday rush ever seen.
Sendle’s integration with WooCommerce makes it easier for merchants to connect their store to their Sendle dashboard, and instantly print shipping labels and send packages in a quick and cost-effective way. Merchants will benefit from flat-rate shipping that’s simple, affordable and carbon neutral.
eCommerce surges ahead of holidays, putting pressure on small businesses
With growth already fuelled by COVID-19, Deloitte forecasts holiday eCommerce sales to surge by 25% to 35%, amounting to between $182 and $196 billion total. Large numbers of consumers have been shopping online during the pandemic, placing immense pressure on small businesses to streamline their shipping so they can efficiently fulfill orders, protect their margins, and compete with larger players.
Sendle CEO James Chin Moody said: “Preparing for the uncertain, but critical holiday period is top of mind for small online retailers everywhere. Sendle’s integration with WooCommerce takes care of the complexities of shipping, so they can focus on growing their business, and take advantage of what’s expected to be a record season.”
At a time when other national carriers have added holiday surcharges for the peak season, Sendle is committed to remaining surcharge free, adding another way for small businesses to operate during this time with confidence.
Tailored shipping for the age of eCommerce
WooCommerce, one of the most popular eCommerce plugins for WordPress, is the platform of choice for online businesses who want the utmost control and flexibility over how their store looks, and the customer experience they provide.
Sendle gives small businesses more control over the post-purchase customer experience by offering a premium shipping service designed to suit their needs. An increasingly important part of the customer journey, a positive shipping experience can create a meaningful competitive advantage and solidify customer loyalty.
“WooCommerce is one of the most widely used eCommerce platforms around the world. With a shared focus on helping small businesses thrive in the age of eCommerce, we’re excited to help WooCommerce merchants ship efficiently and sustainably, particularly in these critical times,” said Moody.
WooCommerce merchants wishing to use the new integration can connect their WooCommerce account to Sendle at www.sendle.com. Sendle also has shipping integrations with Shopify, Etsy and eBay.
