The shipping process is an integral element of e-commerce. Online stores and e-commerce merchants sell products all over the world using different shipping services. One of the primary challenges merchants face today is the dearth of cost-effective shipping processes that enable seamless product delivery.
Known to be one of the most innovative solution providers in the digital e-commerce platform, Magento Commerce, adds yet another novel solution up its sleeve with the announcement of Magento Shipping in April 2017. At the press meet, Mark Lenhard, SVP of strategy at Magento, remarked, “Providing cost-effective shipping is one of the largest pain points for merchants of all sizes.” In a bid to address this pain point, Magento Shipping comes with right features to help merchants streamline shipping processes and capture greater visibility into the customer journey right from the cart to front door.
The extensive set of features along with an element of reasonable customizability makes Magento an excellent platform for merchants to optimally incorporate advanced technology solutions.
An intuitive and innovative multi-carrier end-to-end solution that primarily seeks to automate the process of shipping for brands spanning several industries and geographical regions, Magento Shipping provides merchants with the most convenient automated fulfillment abilities. Through this solution, merchants have greater control over shipping and fulfillment, effectively eliminating cart abandonment to a certain degree, and exploring various business efficiencies to accelerate growth and expand addressable markets. With a whopping $101 billion generated annually on the Magento platform, Magento Shipping – the new offering opens out a massive opportunity for both carriers and merchants to create new customer experience on a global scale.
