Wix (Credit image/Pixabay/Gerd Altmann)Wix has launched its own native shipping solution. The company partnered with Shippo, a shipping platform for eCommerce, to provide Wix business owners with a comprehensive shipping solution. Shippo’s platform gives them access to feature-rich shipping capabilities directly from the Wix Dashboard.

Wix’s online platform combined with Shippo’s end-to-end shipping technology provides business owners with the ability to fulfil their eCommerce orders. Wix says this reduces the complexities retailers face when fulfilling orders independently. This solution is supported by Shippo’s new Shipping Elements suite of modular embeddable shipping components. This gives merchants access to a robust rate engine, tracking, and returns flow. In addition, it offers the ability to purchase and print shipping labels without leaving the orders page.

Benefits of Wix Shipping include:

  • Fulfilling orders faster: From within the Wix Dashboard, business owners can buy and print shipping labels, as well as print return labels. This removes the need for additional shipping applications, accounts, and fees to fulfil orders without friction.
  • Managing inventory and shipping in one place: Users can fulfil orders in the same place they manage products, inventory, and other aspects of their business for a more streamlined process.
  • Receiving carrier benefits: Business owners have access to pre-negotiated rates, discounts on top carriers, and flexible shipping options for any shipment volume. Every region has local carriers, ensuring full geographical coverage and a large variety of top-carrier options and preferred shipping rates.

It simplifies the process of connecting with eCommerce platforms and fulfilling our mission of building the shipping layer of the internet.”

Shipping Elements launched

Wix Shipping powered by Shippo’s Shipping Elements is now available for Wix users based in the US, UK, Canada, and Germany with plans for more geographies in the future.

Last February Shippo, launched Shipping Elements. A suite of embeddable shipping components that eCommerce platforms can implement into their existing user interface (UI). The company says it streamlines retailers’ access to shipping services needed to run their business. With Shipping Elements, eCommerce platforms can offer shipping capabilities natively to the millions of merchants they collectively serve.

Enterprise Times: What this means for business

Shipping can be a complicated process with many moving parts such as multiple carriers, carrier options and methods. This can be a logistical headache for business owners who still need to provide a superior experience on various channels. Brands and retailers using Wix can be assured that their shipping needs are met and decrease logistics headaches. They have a seamless, scalable and end-to-end global shipping experience with access to dozens of carriers at competitive rates. eCommerce is expected to continue to grow over the next few years. As a result, retailers must get the online shipping experience right to ensure customer return to their digital checkouts.
