Australian courier company Sendle has tightened its relationship with global commerce platform Shopify to provide a fully integrated delivery service for Australian small businesses.

The integration means Aussie merchants won’t have to leave the Shopify platform to ship their parcels via Sendle. From Shopify, they can print Sendle labels and book free parcel pick up from their front door with the benefits of low flat-rates Australia wide, affordable international rates, free tracking and 100 per cent carbon neutral shipping.

“Since our inception in 2014 we’ve been working hard to become Australia’s carrier of choice, and we are very proud to be sitting on the Shopify platform alongside some of the world’s top delivery companies including USPS, UPS, DHL and Canada Post,” said Sendle CEO, James Chin Moody.

“Affordable and swift parcel delivery is a competitive advantage that Aussie small businesses can’t do without. Sendle’s full integration with Shopify will save time and money so sellers can get on with running their businesses and create great products for their customers.”

“Shipping can be one of the more complex parts of a business to set up and manage, and one of the costliest. Merchants need all the help and support they can get, so we welcome our relationship with Sendle because it will make the shipping process much easier for Aussie merchants, especially in these difficult times,” said Shopify’s Head of Partnerships for APAC, Rhys Furner.

“Together, Shopify Shipping with Sendle offers a frictionless approach that makes it easier for merchants and helps them to give better and more cost-effective solutions for their customers, which in turn helps improve customer satisfaction and retention.”

Sendle is providing contactless delivery and free parcel pick ups across Australia which is a safe option for Shopify merchants who are self isolating at home or social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic. As an essential service, Sendle has ensured its operations are in line with COVID-19 measures implemented by the federal and state governments.
