ShipWorks improved its comparison-shipping tool for high-volume, multi-channel merchants. The Best Rate tool automatically displays rates and transit times across multiple shipping carriers, and it allows sellers to shop rates for a specific service level (number of days in transit).
New features of Best Rate include the following:
- The ability to add multiple accounts for each carrier. Example – If a user has two UPS, two FedEx, and three USPS accounts, they can search all of those to see which one offers the best rate and/or time in transit.
- The ability for users to uncheck specific services within each carrier. This simplifies options while rate shopping to show only the services that apply to the user. Example – If a user has never shipped freight or overnight, those options can be unchecked so they don’t appear.
ShipWorks General Manager Dominic Lozano said, “Enhancements like these provide our customers customized shipping options that allow them to efficiently select the best shipping option for each of their packages, even as carriers and rates change.”
ShipWorks offers support for over 90 online marketplaces and shopping carts.
