Smart Send shipping add-on for Australian market

25 November 2012 - 11:45 PM

Hi All,

Steve here from Smart Send in Australia. We're interested in providing a shipping add-on to CS-Cart and looking for interest from web development companies/merchants in Australia that may want to use this solution. The benefits of Smart Send and our 'Smart API' solution from a 'merchant' and 'web development/shopping cart company' perspective are as follows:


Smart API add-on solution:
  • 'Real time' freight pricing in your shopping cart. Buyers know upon checkout the exact amount of postage/freight to their destination.
  • Merchants receive payment from buyer for the goods and freight in one transaction
  • Seamless booking process with Smart Send. When the buyer completes payment for the order, the booking can be automatically booked with Smart Send without any manual intervention from the merchant (i.e. no need to re-enter delivery address details for the buyer, weight/dimensions of packages, etc to complete the freight booking)
  • Carrier compliant 'customised' address labels provided instantly via the merchant's Smart Send account console – all goods can be tracked in transit
Smart Send delivery services:
  • Australia's Most Trusted Online Courier Service
  • No minimum consignment fees, no account fees for merchants
  • Startup, small and medium businesses get access to economical postage/freight rates through Smart Send from 1kg to 1 tonne.
  • Smart Send's freight aggregation business has relationships with major Australian freight companies that provide B2B and specialise in B2C delivery services (e.g. TNT, Star Track, Fastway, Couriers Please, etc).
  • Smart Send account manages the delivery process for our merchants/customers – if there is ever an issue with a delivery the merchant contacts Smart Send and our Customer Service staff will resolve the issue through our dedicated contacts at the transport companies.
Web Development/Shopping Cart companies

The ability to provide your merchants with:
  • 'Real Time' freight pricing in their checkouts – available via standard or 'multi-channel' methods
  • Seamless booking processes with Smart Send (saving merchants time and money once an order is processed)
  • Tracking services on the merchant's website (buyers can track goods themselves via the merchant website, minimises prevalence of buyers contacting merchants for the 'whereabouts' of their goods in transit)
Freight Revenue Partner Program:

Web development/shopping cart companies can receive commissions from freight bookings made by merchants via the Smart API solution. This will be released in early 2013 and further details can be provided upon request directly with Smart Send.

Would love to hear from interested parties so we can look at developing this solution for CS-Cart. Thanks guys.
