Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the insanity that always goes along with the holiday season is just around the corner. Even though the holiday shopping season is fairly short, it's extremely lucrative. American businesses have reported that between Black Friday and Christmas day, they generated approximately 19.2% of their yearly gross sales. The busiest shopping season will be here before you know it, which is why now is the time you need to think about what how you're going to handle all the shipping demands that are about to be placed on your business.
If you haven't already considered using courier services this would be a great time to explore the possibility. There are a few different ways courier services help keep your customers happy which in turn boosts your profit margins.
Whether your customer walks into your shop and buys an item directly from your store or if they've ordered something online, they want the item delivered as quickly as possible. Courier services allow this to happen. Using courier services mean neither you nor your customer are at the mercy of a postal service.
Couriers can pick items up directly at your store as opposed to having to bring the items to a shipping service. This saves you the time and expense of transporting the item yourself, plus, since you don't have to leave your business, you don't have to worry about the expense of hiring an additional part-time employee. Reliable courier services are significantly less expensive than setting up an in-house shipping service.
Good courier services aren't just faster than many other shipping options, they're also more reliable. They don't lose track of the item they've been tasked with delivering and they're diligent about letting both you and your customer know that the item is delivered. This reliability is a great way to increase the loyalty your customers feel towards your business.
