TrueShipSupply.com Debuts the First Flat Rate Select Certified Boxes to Help Online Retailers Keep Holiday Shipping Costs in Check

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - October 30, 2014) - TrueShipSupply.com (http://www.TrueshipSupply.com) now exclusively features Flat Rate Select Certified boxes. These specially designed boxes are prequalified for industry leading discounts on USPS Priority mail, and bring a predictability to the cost of every shipment.

Online merchants compete for customers every holiday season with discounted or free shipping promotions. Flat Rate Select certified boxes from TrueShipSupply.com predetermines the cost of every shipment based upon box size. The rates are fixed, up to 20-pounds, and are clearly displayed for every box at TrueShipSupply.com.

By understanding the final shipping cost based upon the box being used, merchants have unprecedented control of their shipping expenses. Flat Rate Select gives e-retailers the competitive advantage. The prices are often cheaper than ground, and the delivery times are faster, too.

Shipping Costs Are Directly Linked to Shopping Cart Abandonment

A recent study found that shoppers are likelier to abandon their shopping cart if the shipping cost and estimated time of delivery is too much. 50% of those polled in the study said that shipping cost, and the expected date of arrival, were key factors.

According to numerous related studies, shoppers are prone to abandon their carts when:

  • Cost of shipping is too high versus perceived value (58%)
  • Shipping time is too long compared to the shipping price (25%)
  • Shipping costs are not stated upfront (22%)
  • Free shipping is not being offered (73%)

 "The prequalified boxes offered on TrueShipSupply.com make it easy to forecast shipping costs, connecting store owners to amazing shipping savings," explained Daniel Koernke, President of Sales. "Flat Rate Select enables you to offer lower shipping prices and faster delivery times. These two key factors help capture shoppers that may have otherwise abandoned their shopping cart."

Flat Rate Select is included with each subscription of ReadyShipper shipping software. Users are able to access the instant shipping savings by simply selecting it as their preferred ship type when processing orders.

"It's never been easier to save on every shipment," Koernke said. "With Flat Rate Select, the savings are instant. Every time."
