LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2017) - Magento Commerce, the worldwide leader in cloud digital commerce innovation, today at Imagine 2017 announced Magento Shipping, an intelligent, multicarrier solution that automates shipping and fulfillment for brands across industries and geographies. The new offering provides merchants with out-of-the-box access to leading regional and international carriers to automate fulfillment, drive cart conversion, uncover new revenue and expand addressable markets. With more than $101 billion in commerce generated annually on the Magento platform, Magento Shipping opens a huge opportunity for carriers and merchants alike to create new customer experiences on a global scale.
More than 86 percent of cart abandonment is related to shipping costs and convenience, according to eMarketer. Magento Shipping is an end-to-end solution that provides greater control over shipping and fulfillment, effectively reducing cart abandonment and unlocking business efficiencies to accelerate growth. Seamless integration with Magento Digital Commerce and Magento Commerce Order Management simplifies commerce operations and streamlines customer experiences. With this new offering, merchants deliver superior cart-to-door shipping experiences that drive order conversion and customer loyalty.
"With Magento Shipping's native carrier connections, we're able to streamline shipping operations and reduce our shipping cost structure," said Scott Harris, marketing manager of brewing products, Coopers Brewery. "Built-in intelligence and conversion-enhancing features allow us to provide our customers the best possible experience in the shopping cart."
