Do you have an e-commerce store? Or, have you thought about starting one? Well, there’s a lot to consider when creating an e-commerce website. Merchants have to decide which e-commerce platform to use and how to effectively showcase their products. The shipping process is an important aspect of an e-commerce store that is often overlooked. And, it can often be a costly mistake. In order to be successful, e-commerce stores have to find the right shipping and shopping cart solutions as early on as possible. This will make your shipping process easier and more convenient for your business and its customers.
There are many shopping cart solutions for merchants to choose from. If your website was created by a web development company, then your website probably has its own shopping cart with customised features. Our Smart Send Smart API solution can be integrated into these types of shopping carts to make the check out and shipping processes more efficient for you and your customers. Our Smart API provides ‘real time’ shipping costs at checkout, automated booking services with carriers, shipping label generation and ‘real time’ tracking services through your website.
Our Smart Send open-source carts are another valuable and efficient shopping cart solution. These solutions are free or very inexpensive to set up. If you have some programming experience, you will have no trouble setting it up yourself.
There are many open-source cart solutions available, but here are the most well-known solutions:

At Smart Send, we have created free shipping plugins or add-ons for these carts. These add-ons provide ‘real-time’ shipping costs at check out, tracking updates, PDF shipping label generation and much more. We continue to develop new plugins regularly and can also create them on request.
