Ah yes, the branded tracking page. This is ShipStation’s crown jewel when it comes to ecommerce branding. Remember back when we spoke about the tracking email? That’s where the branded tracking page is shared with your customers.
But let’s start at the beginning.
What is a Branded Tracking Page?
Whether you use our tracking emails or your marketplaces, the link to track the package will usually take your customer to the carrier page. And we all know who the page belongs to—the carrier has their logo, their name, their links, their everything all over that tracking page. Why? Because they know your customer is going to visit it multiple times.
The branded tracking page changes that workflow. Really, it mows that workflow down and builds a beautiful, branded mansion on top of it. Hence, you have another chance to connect to your customers. Thus, another chance to make them a repeat-buyer.
Why Should I Use It?
No more sending your customers away from your business to the carrier’s page. Instead, you’re sending them to a page featuring not just a map showing where their package currently is, but one with your logo, your website, and your social media pages. It even has your return policy and support contacts!
The branded tracking page is a way to make your business—no matter the size—look bigger and badder. And our users have given us some remarkable feedback on this feature. In fact, some of our sellers have said their customers compared them to Amazon. And it’s all due to the branded tracking page.
That’s all, folks!
