We know you’re smart. Now you can get even smarter and grow your business, all at the same time. This is where SmartePost enters the picture.

SmartePost is here for your peace of mind. It keeps you focused on what you’re passionate about and ― our guess is ― it just may not be shipping. But that’s what we love here at eShipper. So we created SmartePost, eShipper’s trackable postal service alternative, just for you.

Here’s one good answer: you might be paying too much for your small-package shipping. Just take a look at the incredible savings that you can get with SmartePost. It’s crazy, isn’t it?

Need another reason? Here are three:

  1. SmartePost lets you ship domestically, to USA and internationally, so you only need to go to one place for all your shipping.
  2. We integrate with most major shopping carts with most major shopping carts like Shopify, BigCommerce, Magento and Etsy so your shipping experience is always seamless.
  3. You can track your packages, get delivery confirmation and receive insurance for up to $100 for less than you'd pay with the postal service. 

Shoppers expect to be able to track their orders. In fact, online retailers that offer order tracking have a much better chance of pleasing their customers.  As many as 75 of Canadian online shoppers say order tracking is an important aspect of their satisfaction, according to a 2012 study by the J.C. Williams Group. And that number has more than likely shot up since then. There’s no way around it.

If customers like hanging out on your website because you provide such a great experience, it’s good for your business.

Online package tracking gives you additional opportunities to contact customers by e-mail. It entices them to look up your site to check the progress of their order ― and the more time they spend on your site, the more likely they should be to make another purchase.

It also cuts back on telephone inquiries about order status and it makes customers feel confident in you. They know you’re on top of getting their order delivered, every step of the way.

So the big question really is: how much are you spending to make it happen?
