When it comes to business in any industry, the simplest solution that cuts through unnecessary red tape is usually the most cost-effective and efficient. Making procedures as easy as possible improves your overall time spent on orders, and gets them to your customer sooner. It’s a win-win for your business, and for your customers.

This is especially true of online ecommerce businesses whose customers perceive efficiency and fast delivery as important factors when judging a vendor. That’s why UPS provided the UPS Marketplace to integrate online marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, Shopify, Etsy, and more. With a UPS account, these integrations have made administering ecommerce logistics so much easier than they were before integrating.

What is UPS Marketplace Shipping?

The concept behind UPS Marketplace Shipping is a good one. According to the UPS website:

If marketplaces, like Amazon or eBay, are vital to your growth strategy, consider the benefits of UPS marketplace shipping. We’ve developed this free tool to help you centralize marketplace order management. Among its time- and money-saving features, UPS marketplace shipping lets you combine multiple orders that are going to the same address and get automatic updates on order status. You can also offer customers the option to ship to a UPS Access Point™ location for easy customer pickup of smaller items.

UPS offers Five Tips to Manage Your Online Stores with UPS Marketplace

  1. Combine multiple orders from the same buyer and the same online store.
  2. Expand customer reach by connecting global web stores outside the US.
  3. Preset shipping preferences for faster processing.
  4. Nickname storefronts to make it easier to identify them.
  5. Set automatic notifications for tracking.

As you can see, these practices combined with integrated shipping cut down both the order processing time and order shipping costs. Making shipping with UPS even better!

UPS Marketplace Tracking

UPS shipping tracking allows you to automate your tracking of both incoming and outgoing shipments. You know what’s going on with your shipments without making an extra effort, so you can take care of any problems as soon as you’re notified. And you can follow the progress of satisfactory order shipments.

You can use UPS Tracking Support to resolve any issues with shipping and learn how to ship orders more efficiently, reducing shipping problems.

We can all agree that UPS Marketplace Shipping is a win-win for vendors, ecommerce vendors, and customers all the way across the board.

Well, that’s a problem. Why? Because. . .

UPS Marketplace Removes Connections

  • 3D Cart
  • Allegro

  • Jet
  • Magento
  • Newegg
  • Overstock
  • Prestashop
  • Rakuten
  • Sears
  • Shopify
  • Volusion
  • Walmart
  • WooCommerce
  • Yahoo Shopping

While you can still access all of your shipping and order history, what can you do going forward?

Here’s the announcement from UPS:

As of 3/29, all marketplace shipping connections between 3D Cart, Allegro, BigCommerce, Etsy, Jet, Magento, Newegg, Overstock, Prestashop, Rakuten, Sears, Shopify, Volusion, Walmart, WooCommerce and Yahoo Shopping have been shut down.
