Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) has introduced the shipping label printing feature on its mobile app so you can respond to orders directly from your phone.
Shopify shipping labels on mobile
With the new update, users can create and print shipping labels and manage workflows on Android and iOS devices. The new mobile features come after Shopify added several updates to its mobile platform in November 2017 for the Black Friday / Cyber Monday shopping period.
For a small business with online stores, shipping is an integral part of the process. The ability to quickly print shipping labels facilitates the processing of customer orders. And with the new mobile capability, you can do it from anywhere.
Kurt Heinrich, product manager at Shopify, writes on the company's blog: "Now, instead of having to use a computer to buy and print your shipping labels, you can finish the process anywhere, no need to take notes on the tasks to finish when you return to your office or wait for the creation of the shipping labels. "
Characteristics of the application
The application gives you access to all the features you currently have with Shopify Shipping. This includes lower shipping rates than the retailers the company supports: UPS, DHL Express, USPS and Canada Post.
When you receive an order, simply press the "Create a shipping label" button, select the carrier and shipping service, buy the label and then l & # 39; print. With AirPrint or Google Cloud Print, the app can automatically detect nearby printers.
Advantage for Small Businesses
One of the challenges of competition with large online retailers is to be able to execute orders and ship them at any time of day. The new Shopify shipping labels on the mobile app allow you to respond to your orders in order to start the shipping process as quickly as possible.
To start using all the shipping features on your mobile device, download or update the Shopify app for Android or iOS.
