Listing your inventory on multiple sales channels provides lots of opportunities to grow your business, but it can also provide lots of additional administration when it comes to handling your shipments.
The solution is Asendia Connect. This platform enables you to print shipping labels for all of Asendia's parcel services, monitor your deliveries, and manage email notifications from one place.
Integration is simple and fast and it's a customer friendly interface with excellent support. We've developed it in partnership with ShippyPro, chosen by the most innovative brands, working with more than 10,000 retailers.
Depending on the destination country and your individual business needs, we can offer both Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) and Delivered Duty Unpaid services (DDU).
For DDP, parcels are delivered to your customers and any duty and taxes are invoiced back to you. You can include these costs in your selling prices so you don't lose out, and your shopper can see a fully landed price on your store, and has no surprise additional costs when their parcel arrives.
For DDU, customers pay their own taxes, duties and fees through our secure portal. They can also securely upload their ID if this is a customs requirement.
Our paperless system offers early notification to local customs offices once items are in transit, reducing the potential for delays.
We enable to you quickly view which orders are awaiting customer action or customs approval. Parcels can be held during ID upload and while duty payments are being collected. If the customer fails to do this, there are no returns to be managed, supporting your corporate social responsibility.
