TrueShip now includes Flat Rate Select as a built-in feature of ReadyShipper 7.2. shipping software. Flat Rate Select empowers small and mid-sized eCommerce merchants to attract more customers and increase sales by enabling them to offer lower shipping prices and fast delivery windows.

(PRWEB) July 03, 2014

TrueShip (, maker of ReadyShipper shipping software, is on a mission to help small to medium-sized eCommerce businesses better compete with their big-business rivals by connecting them to the best rates on shipping via their signature Flat Rate Select, which is now prebuilt into each copy of ReadyShipper. Flat Rate Select enables active users of ReadyShipper to gain access to tremendous discounts on Priority Mail® for packages 20 pounds or less through TrueShips discount shipping partner, Express 1.

When shipping and handling costs are too steep, shoppers will often abandon their shopping carts at online stores, rescinding the transaction. According to the North American Technographics Retail Online Survey, 66% of customers want low-cost shipping and handling offered at the time of checkout or they are unlikely to complete the transaction.

A white paper also found a similar link, noting that during the holiday shopping season the biggest time of the year for e-retailers over 60% of all consumers desire free shipping as a holiday promotion. If they are not offered this amenity, they are likely to veer in the direction of a competitor that does offer it. The same study also found that stores that do offer low-cost or free shipping can increase sales by as much as 15-20% over the holidays.

Flat Rate Select is ideal for businesses shipping packages smaller than one square-foot. The method of delivery is via USPS Priority Mail®, a shipping method thats trusted by eCommerce merchants every day. Flat Rate Select improves upon the flexibility of this service by allowing merchants to use their own shipping boxes, and adds even more value by displaying the flat rate cost of shipping them (within the USPS Priority Mail® weight limit of 20 pounds).

Previously, discounts on shipping via USPS were only available to businesses with annual volume shipping contracts, and were limited to entities that were shipping 150,000 parcels or more per year. With Flat Rate Select, volume contracts are no longer necessary for the smaller eCommerce businesses to gain access to these generous flat rate discounts on USPS shipping.

Flat Rate Select is designed to help smaller eCommerce businesses remain competitive in the online marketplace by enabling them to offer lower shipping rates to meet the increasing consumer demand for affordable shipping options, explained Daniel Koernke, President of Sales. Its awesome to see what a big difference Flat Rate Select has made for our users.
