Shipping service Fetchy has announced that it is now offering integration with two of the world’s biggest ecommerce platforms: Shopify and Etsy. Merchants can now directly use the service with those providers.
Shipping remains the most expensive and time-consuming aspect of ecommerce for most small and medium-sized business owners and this new development will make it easier for merchant users. Fetchy was founded in the UK in 2016 and says it connects with UPS, Fedex, DHL and Royal Mail.
When we look at the 18% annual growth in online sales, we understand that we urgently need to help the 5.5 million small and medium-sized companies in the UK to move to an online store. There is no single solution for businesses shipping up to 500 packages monthly. Door-to-door global and domestic shipping for online retailers is complex and expensive. Fetchy provides a seamless end-to-end solution from the moment an order is placed on the seller website, through to delivery and returns, saving the seller both in terms of time and money.
– Gilad Salinger, Fetchy founder
Fetchy say they offer a free, easy and friendly-to-use online shipping solution that can be integrated in just three clicks to online stores. From negotiated prices with many local and international couriers – online sellers can get up to 70% off their regular shipping prices, automated labels with live tracking on the orders.
There’s no argument that shipping is a vital activity for ecommerce merchants but is Fetchy a service you use? We’d love to hear more from customers of the service so we can make an assessment. The market for such services is already keen so it would be instructive to understand how they differentiate themselves.
