X-Cart Partners with Pitney Bowes to Help You Save on USPS Rates and Better Meet Customer’s Delivery Expectations
High rates, slow delivery, lost packages and unexpected expenses – that’s how shipping management turns into a nightmare.
But solutions exist! Our new partnership with Pitney Bowes provides you with discounted USPS rates, guaranteed delivery through the USPS, and new ways to finance your shipping expenses.
Understanding the value of the USPS helps explain why we partnered with Pitney Bowes. Let’s break down a few reasons why you’d want to fulfill customer’s orders with the USPS:
With the USPS there are no fuel surcharges, residential delivery fees or address correction fees. The price you see is the price you pay. The statistics say the rest:
- In 2016, 62% of all residential parcel deliveries were made by the USPS.” (2016 Stifel Update);
- Shipping with PB/USPS can save you $8.07 on a 2lb shipment (12” x 10” x 6” box) from CA to NY due to dimensional rate charges by FedEx;
- 39% of parcels are shipped more than 350 miles, making these shipments perfect for USPS.
Pitney Bowes Enhances Your Experience with USPS
- Discounted USPS rates
With Complete™ Delivery*, Pitney Bowes offers discounted shipping rates that bring substantial savings over private carriers. This provides you with additional flexibility, meaning you can pass those discounts to your buyers, or you can keep the additional margin. Either way, through the Pitney Bowes solution, you’ll pay less when shipping with the USPS. Good deal!
- Guaranteed timely delivery
You can be sure that you won’t get complaints from your customer related to the late delivery of their orders. If the Priority Mail label provides a 2-day delivery estimate, Pitney Bowes will guarantee that 2-day delivery.
