Small Business Shipping Tips
By using an economy delivery service, you might be able to offer free shipping to customers which will increase the number of sales.
Use expedited shipping or even a Next Day service for more expensive items to meet customer expectations.
Use your own branded shipping boxes. If you are an online retailer the packaging might be the only touch point with your customer, so leave a good impression.
Provide tracking to the buyer so they can see when the item is dispatched and on its way to them.
Don’t lose sales due to limited shipping options, provide consistent and cost-effective delivery to all customers.
Save time on finding a courier by using a shipping calculator to find the best prices and quickest times, whichever suits your business needs.

What about domestic delivery services?
Popular domestic shipping services include Next Day services, such as the timed morning delivery options, where you can have a package collected and then delivered the following day before lunch, or by the end of the working day.
Cost is also a factor as well as the customer's convenience, so our Ground Shipping options are booked by those looking for the cheapest shipping for their business. This type of service is still fully tracked and protection cover can be added to your items. Sending heavy items such as camping equipment or tents, as well as goods not suitable to be transported by air can be delivered for a low price by opting for a Ground service.

Get access to the cheapest shipping for small businesses by comparing package delivery prices on our site no matter if the items are big or small. You might find if your business is based in the US for example, the best way to move lightweight packets will be via USPS with whom we have great prices with and a wide range of courier services.
Use our bulk shipping tools designed to save time
Why not use our bulk shipping tools to upload multiple shipments in one go? It is much more efficient than uploading your package details one by one. You can plug in your Shopify store so that every time you get an order, we can get an instant shipping price for you. This is also available for eBay stores, making fulfiling orders easier than ever before.
You can simply use a CSV file to upload all your orders and our shipping calculator will fetch prices for all your packages and you can simply add them to the basket if you are happy with the service and price.
Returns for Small Businesses
It is never ideal to have to deal with and process any returns, but they are part of the world of eCommerce. Parcel Monkey has often helped the small businesses handle their returns as all services come with full tracking to delivery. You can even arrange the return from your customer back to you as we can arrange a courier to collect from an alternate address.
Just place the order the same as normal and then email the shipping labels over to the sender, so they can attach them to the box and hand over to the courier.
