Preship tracking feature has been released!

 

We're glad to announce that our new feature called "Preship tracking" has just reached our production servers. But what is preship tracking, exactly?

If you are a small store - sometimes it is not very convenient to use bigger trucking companies to deliver your Qwintry Air shipments to Qwintry pickup hubs, so you can now use regular carriers like USPS to do this! You just prepare your Qwintry shipments as usual, put them all in bigger box, and ship this consolidated box to our pickup hub address via USPS or UPS! After that you put tracking number that you received from carrier (USPS and UPS integrations are already available) into "preship tracking" field on the Logistics website, and then magic happens: the tracking progress of your consolidated package is automatically merged into each Qwintry shipment that is sitting inside that box, so your end customer can track progress of his Qwintry shipment right after you assigned this preship tracking to his Qwintry shipment! When your package arrives to the Qwintry warehouse - we open consolidated package and process your shipments as usual.

Preship tracking feature means that affordable and fast Qwintry delivery to Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, South Korea & China is now available to smaller ecommerce stores across the US! You don't need to be based anywhere near Qwintry pickup hubs, and you don't need to think about working with bigger trucking companies to ship you packages!

Why Qwintry Logistics is a better method of shipping goods to Russia, China and Korea?

We carefully cherry-pick best way of customs clearance and delivery in each destination country:

 

For Russia, it means we use several domestic private carriers and do 99% of deliveries in Moscow and Saint Petersburg on the next day after customs clearance, in South Korea we use Korea Post Domestic service (and it means 99% of deliveries in Korea are done during next 2 days) and for China - we currently transfer freight to Hong Kong and use Hong Kong Post for delivery to China Mainland - so, in different countries we do best possible way to make affordable and fast delivery.


In Topic: Manage A Lot Of Api Requests

09 December 2015 - 11:18 AM

As far as I know, Cs-Cart api does not provide bulk API for product creation and update (and even basic REST api is there since 4.x release only), so you have to create an API call for each product - and it is not a huge issue unless you have to update ten thousand of products every hour. The performance here really depends on your server hardware and connection.

It is usually a good idea to fork long-running PHP process that makes such updates and show a progress bar to user of your php script, or at least set script time limit to fair amount of seconds to avoid "execution time exceeded 30 seconds" error.
