But CanadaPost is so cheap?
Canada Post is definitely the cheapest option to ship. We encourage most of our Etsy Client’s to continue offering Canada Post as a Base Shipping Option for the client’s who are super price conscious. We think CanadaPost falls short because of the long delivery times (2-4 weeks), no tracking and no pickup.
Here comes our Sales Pitch!
- Free Pickup – Our Etsy sellers swear this is the best feature about us, no more driving to post office. Our drivers will come to your office or home and pick up your package at the time you specify.
- 1-4 day transit – We can get to your package in most local destinations in one day and across Canada in 3 to 4 days. In the world of Amazon etc where customers are used to 2 day shipping, 2 weeks just doesn’t work.
- Tracking – How many emails did you get for “where is my package?”,”when will it arrive?”. We think you should be focused on growing your business instead of replying to such emails. We offer full end to end tracking, clients know from the moment it’s picked up to every stop it makes till it gets to them.
- International – US, Europe, Australia is one of etsy’s biggest market. Although we can ship anywhere in the world in 1-4 days, We ask you to not to say no to business opportunities. Read about how one Etsy seller increased sales 20-30% from International Markets – http://etsy.me/2vKKOy5
Best of Both Worlds.
Shipping Upgrades – One of the best features about Etsy, yet underused by most sellers.
Here’s what we recommend,
a) Keep your existing CanadaPost Shipping Options.
b) Offer Shipping Upgrades for Express Shipping for your clients, there is no additional cost to you.
The biggest mistake you can make is that to make the decision for the client. Give your client the option to pick the shipping option.
We will be there every step of the way, from pricing international shipping costs to your first shipment to every shipment and tracking it along the way to ensure a smooth experience for your clients.
