Research has shown that no less than 66% of all e-shoppers have once left a shopping cart because of insufficient shipping options. It is therefore better to pay the necessary attention to optimally setting up your check-out.
Below we give you a number of tips to optimize your checkout.
Multiple delivery options
As mentioned above, offering the desired delivery options is very important. With Sendcloud you have all possible shipping options with all popular carriers. Offer your customers the following delivery options in your check-out:
- Home delivery
- Send to service points
- Shipping to parcel machines (Belgium)
- Same Day delivery (the Netherlands)
- Express delivery
- Saturday delivery
- Evening delivery
Once you have selected the carrier(s) of your choice in your Sendcloud environment, you can add it to the back-end of your shop system. How that works exactly depends on the system you use. Mostly under "shipping" in your shopsystem.
Integrate service points
Shipping to service points is becoming increasingly important. It's a cheap(er) and more efficient delivery option, since the customer can choose when he wants to pick up the package. That is why we have built the service point picker at Sendcloud, so that you can seamlessly integrate all pick-up points of all carriers in the checkout of your webshop. Here you can find an overview of the current shop systems which support our service point picker.
