If you’re not one of the 51% of retailers already offering same-day delivery, or you want to smooth out your current operations, here’s how FedEx SameDay® City and ShipperHQ can get you up to speed.
For many eCommerce businesses, regardless of their size, offering up ample delivery options at checkout is a clear way to stand out in today’s current climate. It’s about more than just providing choice, though.
On your checkout page, your customers expect to see fair shipping prices. And reassurance that what they ordered will get to them quickly, even as the uncertainty of COVID-19 continues.
Same-day delivery is one of the shipping options your customers crave most.
In fact, 56% of online consumers between the ages of 18-34 expect you to have same-day delivery already. Even though, only 51% of retailers actually do.
While the benefits of same-day delivery seem straightforward from a customer’s perspective – they get their items almost immediately – it’s more than just that. For orders that are time-sensitive like a birthday cake, or urgent like medication, same-day delivery offers dependability and security on top of convenience.
Despite same-day delivery providing a customer experience unlike any other, many businesses are still wary to dive into the logistics of it all. If all aspects are managed in-house, it can take away staff from other business activities.
Same-day delivery can seem unpredictable, time-consuming and costly. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Getting same-day delivery up and running, both at checkout and in your operations is viable through ShipperHQ’s integration with FedEx SameDay® City services.
