Shipping software service ShipWorks reports that it has integrated with Overstock.com. That’s the big American online home goods and furniture retailer that sells a broad range of products and is well known for its low prices.
With the integration, Overstock.com orders can now be downloaded into ShipWorks manually or on an automated schedule. When the simple download is complete, users can manage their Overstock shipments with the ShipWorks Rules feature, which helps merchants automate a wide range of shipping conditions.
Once enabled, the ShipWorks ShipSense tool can further automate repeat shipping tasks by learning key characteristics of orders and automatically enter shipment information such as carton dimensions, weight, or product value. When orders are processed, ShipWorks then updates the Overstock store with shipment details including order status, carrier used, and tracking information.
ShipWorks says that customers will find the Overstock.com integration extremely beneficial, particularly the versatile automation that will save them significant time. Users can also specify that any Overstock order weighing more than 15-pounds, for example, be sent via a specific carrier, or activate parcel insurance on specific products or based on order values. In addition, ShipWorks Rate Shopping allows users to compare shipping rates across multiple carriers to get the best rates on every order.
