Shippo Now Powers Tracking Pages for E-commerce

Introducing Shippo Tracking Pages

We’re excited to announce that Tracking Pages are now available to all new and existing Shippo customers.

The period after an online purchase is an optimal time to engage with a customer, and to establish and increase brand loyalty. With Tracking Pages, retailers can customize tracking notifications, curating a style and look that connects with their buyers. Tracking Pages give buyers the information they need to be at the right place at the right time so they can receive their packages.

The fragmented shipping ecosystem presents new challenges that need to be handled in different ways. Businesses must consider that all their customers will interact with their brand during the shipping process. We believe Tracking Pages will provide enormous value.

With e-commerce expected to double to $4T in the next two years, and people globally making purchases from their phones, companies are changing the way they think about business. The fragmented shipping ecosystem presents new challenges that need to be handled in different ways. Businesses must consider that all their customers will interact with their brand during the shipping process. We believe Tracking Pages will provide enormous value.

Shippo’s Tracking Pages are easy to implement, flexible, and scalable. Here are some highlights:

  • A simple implementation and carrier-agnostic approach that would work no matter what service you’re using to deliver your packages.
  • Modify visual elements of Pages including logo, display ads, and social plugins without writing code.
  • Stay top-of-mind with your own customers. Engage customers during the post-purchase period, proven to be the most optimal time to get their attention, recommend other items, or prompt return visits.

Ever since we started Shippo fours years ago, we’ve been thrilled by the interest, support, and feedback we’ve gotten from online retailers all over the globe. We want to help businesses succeed through shipping worldwide, and with Tracking Pages, we’re providing the best tracking and post-purchase experience to help our customers re-engage their existing buyers.

Tracking Pages are simple to customize in our web app and available programmatically for existing APIs. Customers can get started using Tracking Pages today by contacting Shippo Sales team.

We look forward to hearing your feedback.
