Meet Hannah Perry. Hannah is the owner and founder of the Giggling Pig, a Connecticut-based art studio with a focus on art lessons for kids. With 2 retail locations, Hannah also saw potential for an online store.
Hannah created a design for a special ‘Art Box,’ an individual paint set that allows customers to paint their very own Giggling Pig projects at home.
“I’ve been looking to grow my business since the day I started it,” she said. “We had one location initially, and now we have two retail stores and a bustling ecommerce website.”
That’s when Hannah discovered SendPro® Online, an online shipping software that would help her simplify her sending process.
“The opportunity to have access to the tools to help me do the shipping I need to do, something that [was] new to me and my business, could not [have] come at a better time,” declared Hannah.
Ecommerce shipping for small online businesses can be a tricky balancing act.
Put everything on autopilot, and you end up overspending on shipping for the convenience of simplicity and knowing this gets your packages where they need to go. (Sometimes flat rate shipping isn't always the answer).
Try to choose the best shipping services by yourself for every parcel, as well as the right packaging materials, and you end up with hours of work and an excel sheet just to remember which order was shipped with which carrier.
That’s where a shipping software like SendPro® Online can come in handy. With a little automation, you can get the best of both worlds.
