As an entrepreneur selling online, you intimately know the cost of starting and running a business. Ecommerce margins are razor-thin and consumer expectations, especially when it comes to fulfillment and delivery, are sky-high.
Here at ShipStation, we know too. The cost and time savings from shipping efficiently are our top priority. In fact, we have a 52-page ebook on it. Pair that with cost-savings from various discounts and your business becomes more profitable.
One of the things that are especially difficult for a merchant starting their business is being tied to fixed costs and contracts with minimum requirements. With the ShipStation Carrier Services program, we’ve got your back.
Discounted Hermes labels without minimum requirements
UK-based ShipStation customers are now able to access discounted Hermes labels for ParcelShop drop-off without minimum volume requirements and other restrictions. Competitive rates are now available in the app and start at only £2.25 per parcel (excluding VAT, delivery to UK Mainland).
Drop-off at ParcelShops is easy. With over 4,500 locations, open 7 days a week, 92% of UK merchants live within 2 miles of a ParcelShop. And Hermes boasts an industry-leading first-time delivery rate. They offer three consecutive courier delivery attempts as standard and deliver 98% of parcels the first time.
What is ShipStation Carrier Services?
ShipStation Carrier Services serves as a postage wallet and you can configure ShipStation to automatically purchase postage when your ShipStation Carrier Services account balance dips below a certain amount.
Hermes rates and labels are immediately available for your orders when you have a UK account. No need to connect an account, just make sure you set up a payment method. This puts new merchants on a level playing field with established merchants and allows established merchants to expand their delivery and fulfillment choices.
