Being an ecommerce brand comes with lots of benefits. But the ecommerce life is not without its hurdles to jump. One of them is a dependency on shipping companies (unless you have your own courier service).
In general, an ecommerce business owner doesn’t feel the strain of this partnership, but when an important milestone arises — like a global sales campaign — you have to be sure your shipping partner doesn’t let you down.
The end of 2022 is coming, and every major shipping company is feeling the effect of the holiday rush. Because of this, they are asking sellers to ship their goods by certain dates if they want them delivered before this year ends.
To ease your stress, and guarantee your customer’s purchases will arrive on time, we’ve done a round-up of deadlines from major shipping companies for domestic deliveries.
Let your customers know about these deadlines and make your shipping plans accordingly.
