Having a thriving ecommerce business requires a top-notch shipping service. Whether you handle shipping in-house or through a 3rd-party company, getting your product out to customers on time is a must. But, it can be difficult to figure out the logistics on your own, and not all shipping software integrates with your other business software.

Ordoro is the Best Shipping Software for Ecommerce

There is a long list of reasons that Ordoro works hand-in-hand with ecommerce, but let’s just hit the highlights.

Multi-Carrier Shipping

Ordoro is not only capable of working with just one shipping vendor but works just as well for ecommerce companies that use more than one shipping vendor. Ordoro will ease your shipping workflow with these features:

  • Heavily-discounted shipping fees from USPS
  • Use Ordoro’s integrated shipping vendors, including USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, Canada Post
  • Set up Automation Rules and Shipping Presets that make sense for your company
  • Print shipping labels in bulk or individually

Inventory Management

Ordoro’s shipping software integrates with your inventory, making it much easier to track inventory throughout the order and fulfillment process.

  • Automate your tracking and syncing of inventory with orders
  • Anticipate the need and send out new Purchase Orders when inventory is low
  • Create sale kits by bundling multiple products together into one unit for sale
  • Scan barcodes to reduce inventory and fulfillment errors

Multichannel

Selling your products through more than one sales channel? Ordoro’s software will work well in a multichannel operation.

  • Integrate and view all sales and supplier channels at the same time
  • Add third-party and custom apps with Ordoro’s open API
  • Manage your orders through every step of the transaction
  • Set up Supplier Feeds for back-end coordination in real-time

  • Select manual or automated routing
  • Activate a Vendor Portal to work with your supplier

Why You Shouldn’t Use Free Shipping Software

Many shipping carriers provide “free software” to help you ship packages using their service to customers. UPS WorldShip, FedEx Ship Manager, and USPS Click and Ship are three examples of this free software. But we all know that there is no free lunch, right?

While the software itself is free to use, it doesn’t integrate with your sales and inventory software, meaning employees need to juggle between different systems, leaving many places where errors can be made. Your company uses added man-hours to copy and paste between programs, record tracking numbers for customers, and other tedious tasks necessary to ship out your orders.

The software takes you out of competitive pricing because you can only see one shipper’s pricing on their software. That means you are definitely paying more for shipping.

Ordoro’s ecommerce shipping software eliminates man-hours, saves you money by integrating with your sales and inventory software, and offers you competitive pricing on your shipping costs.

Why Your Small Business Should Invest in Shipping Software

You may have launched your business on a shoestring budget when free shipping software was your only choice. But, now that your ecommerce business is growing, you’re not using your time efficiently by doing things manually anymore. By investing in shipping software, you are investing in your own business, and finding ways to save time and money through automation.

What is Multi-Carrier Shipping Software?

Multi-carrier shipping software is a platform that automates and streamlines the spot freight process. Users can compare quotes from carriers, choose their preferred shipping partner and initiate the freight process.

If you ship packages every day on multiple shippers, your company will do a better job of keeping shipping costs down, comply with automation regulations, manage and track orders, improve employee onboarding and scalability, and reduce the chance of human error. And Ordoro’s software is designed for ecommerce, so you don’t have to adapt a brick-and-mortar program to ecommerce.

Once your Ordoro shipping software is implemented, you will have more time to focus on the growth of your business. Ordoro’s software was designed to help small businesses run like large corporations but at a fraction of the cost. Ordoro provides easy inventory management and order processing for online merchants.
