Australian courier service for small business, Sendle, is offering a new Etsy integration to ease shipping challenges and help SMBs meet increased demand for products, fueled by the coronavirus pandemic.
Sendle has seen an increasing number of Etsy sellers using the shipping platform to book parcel delivery as more consumers shop online and buy locally made products.
The integration makes it easy for sellers to connect their Etsy shop with their Sendle dashboard, print labels and ship their Etsy orders through Sendle.
Sendle co-founder and CEO, James Chin Moody said, “With so many small business retailers making the transition from bricks to clicks, we have developed a streamlined shipping experience for Australian Etsy sellers. Our integration is designed to function seamlessly with your Etsy shop, giving sellers access to door-to-door delivery that is simple, affordable and reliable, during an unprecedented eCommerce boom.”
Over the past five years, Sendle has reshaped parcel delivery in Australia and helped small businesses simplify their shipping. In May, eCommerce company Shopify integrated Sendle into its platform as one of only five shipping carriers globally.
As the first 100% carbon neutral parcel delivery service in Australia, Sendle’s purpose also aligns with Etsy’s environmental credentials. Both companies are pioneering the move toward a zero-emissions delivery future.
“We love how Etsy and Sendle are closely aligned when it comes to prioritising the planet as a key stakeholder. When you sell with Etsy and ship with Sendle, you are effectively doubling your offset, meaning that you are being ‘carbon positive’ and removing carbon from the atmosphere with every parcel you send,” Moody added.
A recent survey of Sendle customers in Australia revealed a 55% increase in demand for locally made products during COVID-19.
