Streamline Your UPS® Shipping with E-Commerce Integration
Here’s a universal truth: your customers don’t like a messy shopping or shipping experience any more than you do. That is why it’s key to work with a UPS shipping partner that gives you solutions to make both experiences seamless.
Those solutions are often in the form of a comprehensive platform integration — the act of incorporating applications from multiple sources into a comprehensive “all in one” process through an API (application programming interface) — but can also be as simple as installing a shopping cart plugin to show real-time shipping rates at your point of sale.
Both routes help to streamline your customers’ online experience while automating certain internal back-end tasks. If you’ve ever used a virtual shopping cart during checkout, you’ve most likely experienced a common e-commerce integration.
Unishippers, an industry-leading, third-party logistics (3PL) company, provides integration options that keep both you and your customers happy. We provide the tools and resources you need to seamlessly integrate e-commerce shipping processes and platforms to where they all “speak the same language” and work together. Our tools allow you to:
- Install plugins to display up-to-date shipping rates directly on your shopping cart at check-out and easily create shipping labels for hassle-free returns at the same time you prepare a shipment, among many other tasks.
- Seamlessly connect Unishippers’ transportation system (TMS) with your own ERP, inventory management software or other off-the-shelf or home-grown TMS systems using our RESTful API, enabling complete visibility for your ordering, fulfillment and billing processes.
Our specially trained integration team can educate you about our e-commerce integrations and recommend specific solutions that would be most beneficial. We even offer developer resources to help with the implementation process.
