Shipping can make or break an online business, and IRIDIUM offers a shipping solution that is both broad and robust. The tool helps to establish and maintain an efficient “batch grouping” workflow as you pick inventory from the shelves and then package it for delivery. Working with UPS, FedEx, USPS, and USPS with postage via Endicia, and International carriers, the tool updates the system when batches have completed picked up for delivery.
Depending on how quickly the customer wants to receive their order, the tool identifies the least expensive method of shipping, taking into account delivery destination and delivery speed. Shipping calculations are done with provisions for free shipping (as determined by the terms of the sale), or orders can be calculated by the dollar amount. Rates can also be calculated by zip code and based on different shipping carriers and methods that include: ground shipping, 3-day, and 2-day delivery. The price of each method can be defined by custom pricing or actual rates that are acquired from a variety of shipping companies.
