I have notice a lot of SUN members struggling with shipping related issues. This is very understandable as it tends to be assumed as easy and left until last. So I have decided to do something that I have wanted to do for years. I have created a web site that contains free informational articles concerning shipping for Internet retailers known as http://www.BusinessShipper.com. There is only one article there right now. This is only the beginning but I thought SUN members might find the first article to be of value, so I decided to go public early.
The first article addresses how to handle shipping charges at order time and a way to deal with shopping cart abandonment. Did you know nearly 50% of the people that abandon their shipping cart orders do it because of shipping charges? This does not sound like something that should be ignored to me. I hope my first article gives the SUN members ideas on how to deal with these problems, or at least gets people to start thinking.
All the information found on this site is free for use and I will try my best to keep it as informative and relevant as possible. I am sharing with you what I have learned over the years working with all size companies and I plan to get other people to donate some time and knowledge. I plan to add one to two articles to this site per month.
I would value any comments from SUN members concerning this project. If there are any subjects you would like to see there, let me know. I have already started making a list. I hope you all find this of value!
