Removing Obstacles to Sales – A Shipping Integration Update

15 April 2010

NitroSell shipping integrations give merchants the ability to present real-time shipping rates to web store customers during the checkout process. Most shipping integrations (UPS, FedEX, Canada Post) use a combination of product and customer data, including product weight and shipping address, zip code and state. Shipping service rate requests fail due to following common reasons:

We’ve upgraded our checkout process such that these kinds of errors are presented to the customer, giving them the chance to correct the cause of the error and re-attempt the checkout process.


In this way, the customer is given the most information possible to complete the process. Taking the above screenshot an example (click to zoom), all the customer has to do is correct their address details and return to complete the checkout process.

* Please note that the above checkout and shipping integration updates are currently available only to webstores running in the Beta version of NitroSell eCommerce. Feel free to open a ticket on the Partner Portal if you would like to expose this functionality on your web store.
