It’s really best to do a little research on various carriers to understand how choosing one over the other will affect your delivery time and, of course, pricing. You should also take into consideration whether you are shipping locally or is international shipping needed.
Once you have decided who you wish to collaborate with, think about how you could provide an enjoyable post-purchase experience for your customers. One way to do this is enable tracking with an order tracking app such as Trackr, which collects shipping information from more than 900 carriers and allows your customers to access it in real-time.
This app also lets you create a separate, branded tracking page for your store making it convenient for your customers to have updates on their parcel’s journey. Also, this way you have found a simple way to make customers return to your store.
