Shyp to Provide Outsourced Fulfillment to Shopify Merchants
Shyp, a provider of parcel pickup, packaging, and shipping for small to medium businesses, announced a new integration with Shopify, a cloud-based multichannel commerce platform.
The purpose of the arrangement is to make the fulfillment process easier than ever before. Merchants in San Francisco, New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles can now fully outsource their fulfillment workflow, with Shyp picking up, packing, and shipping parcels on their behalf.
“As an online retailer’s business grows, the time required to quickly fulfill orders can be daunting,” said Maia Benson, Global GM Shipping & Fulfillment, Shopify. “Merchants consistently ask us for a better way to do the job, one that is cost-effective and delivers a great consumer experience. Shyp’s mobile app makes it easy for our merchants to get their orders picked up, professionally packaged and shipped, all while ensuring the tracking data is easily accessible within each order.”
With the new Shopify and Shyp integration, Shopify merchants can see their orders immediately within the Shyp mobile app once they connect their store. With a simple click in the app, merchants can request and schedule a pickup and let Shyp know if they want packing included. Once orders are collected and packed, Shyp selects the shipping option indicated and sends parcels via one of their integrated carriers: the United States Postal Service, FedEx, or UPS. Merchants automatically receive tracking information directly through their Shopify store.
“Online retailers face mounting pressure from their customers to be nimble and deliver quickly,” said Kevin Gibbon, CEO, Shyp. “We are collaborating with Shopify to help merchants deliver exceptional customer experience and solidifying our position as the go-to outsourced, fulfillment solution for small businesses and marketplace sellers.”
Shyp’s suite of shipping solutions integrate seamlessly into the customer fulfillment workflow, offering pickup, packaging and the best shipping option for each parcel. Customers can also batch print shipping labels from any device and drop off packaged parcels at carrier-designated locations. Shyp serves the greater metropolitan areas of San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago and reaches a population of 55 million.
