Reduce shopping cart abandonment with accurate pricing and delivery options.
Customers don't want to pay for shipping and they want delivery choices. The more options you can provide early on in the shopping experience, the less likely your customer will abandon your eCommerce site. They also want to track delivery status and have an easy returns process. Like Amazon has. Transtream provides a multi-carrier, omni-channel API for shopping carts, and customer self-help tracking and returns widgets for your website, that will keep customers coming back for more.
See the ARC Logistics Viewpoint article about how cartonization technology can help businesses instantly calculate number of cartons to more accurately estimate shipping charges and reduce waste, abandonment, and lost margins.
