Free Shipping Equals More Ecommerce Sales -- TrueShip's Brand New Guide Highlights Nine Ecommerce Stores That Are Cashing In on Free Shipping

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - TrueShip (http://www.trueship.com) has just released a new guide that highlights nine different ecommerce stores that are selling more items due to their free shipping amenity.

The guide serves to cover e-retailers that use free shipping to decrease shopping cart abandonment rates while also providing readers with a variety of small business shipping tips that can help them factor in free shipping as part of their bottom line. The guide also includes a chart and two illustrated infographics.

With recent studies on shopping cart abandonment finding that shipping cost plays the strongest role, e-retailers have to do everything that they can to convince shoppers to convert. Experts say that over $4 trillion is lost in sales each year in ecommerce simply due to cart abandoners, but the fix is rather simple: offer free shipping and convert ten times as many shoppers.

In TrueShip’s newest guide, nine stores that are doing just this are highlighted as examples of how a simple amenity like free shipping can serve to fuel more sales. In addition, a variety of small business shipping tips are offered, as well as key reasons why shoppers abandon carts.

“Shoppers have painted a very clear picture for e-retailers: they want free shipping or else,” explained Michael Lazar, Director of Online Marketing at TrueShip. “Our newest guide highlights the importance of this key offering while providing several tips and tricks that can help even the smallest of e-retailers integrate this key amenity into their game plan.”
