ShipWorks, a leading enterprise shipping software program for eCommerce merchants and warehouses, has integrated with home goods and furniture retailer and marketplace Overstock.com.
This new integration joins over 100 other major marketplaces, shopping carts, and fulfillment services ShipWorks supports to help its users to improve fulfillment operations.
How The New Integration Works
With this latest integration, Overstock.com orders can be downloaded into ShipWorks manually or on an automated schedule.
When the download is complete, users can manage their Overstock.com shipments with the ShipWorks Rules feature, which helps automate a wide range of shipping conditions.
Once enabled, the ShipWorks ShipSense tool can further automate repeat shipping tasks by learning key characteristics of orders and automatically enter shipment information such as carton dimensions, weight, or product value.
This is a key feature in ShipWorks and one that will be useful for Overstock.com sellers which often ship larger and higher value packages versus sellers on other marketplaces.
For example, users can specify that any Overstock order weighing more than 15-pounds is sent via a specific carrier, or activate parcel insurance on specific products or based on order values.
In addition, ShipWorks Rate Shopping allows users to compare shipping rates across multiple carriers to get the best rates on every order.
When Overstock.com orders are processed, ShipWorks then updates the Overstock store with shipment details including order status, the carrier used, and tracking information.
