June 2020

New Notification Center is Now Live for Everyone: The notification Center will provide regular updates through the shipment creation process. These were previously only sent by email; now, you can still receive the emails, but you’ll also see the alerts in the top left of your Easyship account when you log in!

Improved Country Grouping for Shipping Rules: Easyship merchants now have more control over creating country-based shipping rules on the platform. Before, adding a shipping rule that applied to multiple countries was cumbersome and time-consuming.

Save on Shipping with our Flat Export Rates: To help you access more affordable international shipping, we consolidated several shipping solutions to offer you one discounted service. Easyship’s Flat Export Rates are based on your parcel’s weight, so you’ll never pay more than you should.

Get Through the Pandemic with Our COVID-19 Resources: We’ve put together a complete lineup of COVID-19 resources, ranging from partner offers and courier operations updates to guides for managing your shipping during this time.

New International Shipping Solutions

  • Easyship users in Australia can now use TNT international services to send parcels around the world!
  • Also in Australia, our eFulfillment clients now have access to DHL’s eCommerce services. Most people are shopping online these days, so if you’re an online merchant in Australia, these services will be a big help for keeping up with your orders.

April 2020

Experience Greater Usability with Product Listings: This month, we’ve made further changes to the way you create product listings so that it’s more intuitive and gives you more clarity over managing multiple stores. The improved product listing process involves a clearer workflow which is more user-friendly and instructional. Users can now see exactly which store they’re adding products to.

A New Way of Entering Shipment Sizing for Rate Calculations: Size matters when it comes to calculating shipping rates. That’s why, to make things easier for everyone, we’ve changed the way you can enter details when creating shipments.

This means that shipping rates will be calculated slightly differently now. Here’s what’s going to happen.

  • The Easyship system will now automatically calculate box size (and shipping rates) based on the information you’ve previously provided in the product listing section.
  • This means, if you want to edit product size and dimensions for a shipment, you’ll have to do this beforehand in the product listing editor.
  • If there is no appropriate product listing in your account, the system will use the box size you enter in the shipment creator to calculate your shipping rate.
  • If you don’t enter a box size, the rates will be calculated using deadweight only. This may result in rate adjustments later, so we recommend that you provide accurate box sizes when creating your shipments.

New International Shipping Solutions:

  1. Canpar Express is now live on Easyship! Canadian clients can now use the Ontario-based courier for a range of domestic and international services through their dashboard. This includes Canada-wide ground, express, 10AM, and noon services, along with cost-effective international deliveries to 215 countries.
  2. In Australia, our merchants can now access FedEx International Economy (2-4 days for Asia; 3 days for US; 3-4 days for Europe) and FedEx International Priority (1-3 days for delivery) services through their account.

March 2020

Squarespace x Easyship Integration is Live: We gave you a sneak peek last month, but we’re excited to announce that our integration with Squarespace is now live! Now, Squarespace merchants can easily integrate the Easyship extension with their store and get access to the full range of Easyship tools to simplify their shipping process. Plus, sellers can now sync directly to Easyship and update tracking with just a few clicks.

Take Control of Your Shipping Insurance: Previously, insurance was calculated as a percentage of the total value of a shipment (that’s the shipping cost plus the product value). And, if things went wrong, the sender would receive a 100% refund of the total cost. However, it became clear to us that many of you wanted lower insurance fees and more flexibility in what was covered. That’s why you can now decide the way your insurance is calculated.

Now, you can choose from three methods of insurance calculation:

  • Insure just the selling price of the item.
  • Choose a percentage of the selling price as insurance.
  • Set your own price as the insurance value.

Managing Product Listings Through Your Easyship Dashboard Just Got Easier: We’ve revamped the way our product listings work so that they’re more intuitive - and much easier for you to manage. Before, updating values such as product weight and dimensions was a bit of a task. You had to upload a CSV file. It also could only be done through direct integrations. Now though, you can edit values directly in the Easyship dashboard using a bulk editor. The result? It’s much faster and easier for you to change details on your product listings.

New International Shipping Options

  • Australian clients can now use CouriersPlease! The well-known courier is great for express deliveries in Australia and also offers signature-on-delivery or authority to leave (no signature required) services.
  • Hong Kong fulfillment clients will now be able to use FedEx First for international shipments. This is FedEx’s fastest service and offers delivery as early as 8am on the next business day in certain locations.
  • Our merchants in the UK now have access to affordable international shipping with UPS’s Worldwide Saver service, which offers delivery within 1-5 business days.

February 2020

Give Your Customers More Options for Paying Taxes: As well as showing options to pay on delivery, you can allow your customers to see options to prepay taxes and duties straight away. The best part is that Easyship users can now set up these checkout options through automated shipping rules on our platform!

New International Shipping Solutions

  • Hong Kong-based eFulfillment clients can now use DHL eCommerce Parcel Direct Expedited to reach customers in India and Thailand.
  • DHL eCommerce Packet Plus International is now available to Hong Kong eFulfillment clients to reach 41 countries across the globe.
