Spring UK, its parent company Post NL and Dutch firm MyParcel.com have partnered to create SendMyParcel.com, which has just launched in the UK. They say that the new firm seeks to set new courier and shipping standards in deliveries for online retailers.
Saying that they have something for most online retailers, the system is apparently suitable for larger enterprises and promises smaller operators a greater opportunity to compete against much larger brands both at home and abroad.
The SendMyParcel platform has already integrated a number of the major ecommerce platforms and marketplaces including Magento, Amazon eBay, woocommerce and Prestashop and more are planned in the coming months. In terms of carriers they have also already integrated with Yodel, myHermes, DPD, UKmail and DHL. They are asking merchants to let them know if they have preferred providers that they would like the service to offer support for.
They say they can help ecommerce and marketplace businesses save time and money shipping parcels and letters to and from any place in the world by simplifying shipping, making it faster and easier for any business, regardless of size, IT knowledge and infrastructure.
So many online retailers with which we speak, including those in webshops and marketplaces, want to be able to offer consumers a broad range of delivery services. However, they find that they are prevented from tapping into the kind of facilities which would enable them to grow because their volumes aren’t large enough. However, SendMyParcel allows them access to the sort of delivery options which are normally only provided by much larger competitors, such as nominated day or ‘click and collect’, at very competitive price points.
