Ok, so I get it – a lot of people will argue with us. Thats ok, it doesn’t change what we think. Some people will tell you that the very first thing you need to worry about with e-commerce is getting the order. But we are here to say that is wrong!
The first “law” of e-commerce is not to get the order, it’s to ship the order.
You see, everything your doing – from building the cart, to planning your marketing, to setting up your office is geared towards getting an order. Yes, getting an order is a requirement – but its not a law.
A law indicates its something you simply have to do, whereas a requirement is more of a hope. If you don’t meet the requirement, not a lot will happen. But if you break a law, well, then the poop hits the fan.
The reality is… you have to get orders, but if you fail to ship them, or ship them badly your business will fail no matter how many orders you have.
Shippo allows you to print labels for USPS, FedEx, UPS and more for just 5 cents a label plus actual postage cost.
Without a shipping label provider, your sunk no matter how many orders you have.
We’re happy to be partnering with Shippo to offer you this service. And if you’d rather choose your own provider, we offer 3 additional options that are available on our paid accounts.
