Global technology company and commerce solutions provider, Pitney Bowes has introduced a new online parcel sending solution, SendPro Online, in Australia.

It is the first international launch of a dedicated shipping platform for Pitney Bowes outside of the United States.

The online shipping platform provides small businesses and online retailers with an easier and more convenient way to send parcels, by allowing users to choose a preferred carrier, print shipping labels and track packages from their computer. It also enables integration of online stores for easy and secure parcel sending, tracking and order management.

Pitney Bowes Japan, Australia and New Zealand vice president and country manager, Stephen Darracott said businesses continued to experience a rush of online orders during 2020.

“As this trend continues into 2021, it’s important to have a solution, like SendPro Online, in place that is flexible and can streamline and expediate the parcel shipping process so businesses can meet and exceed customer expectations,” he said.

“With SendPro Online, businesses can choose from multiple carriers, factoring in cost, speed, and other factors, so they can make sure their parcels are sent with the carrier that best meets their desired outcome.”

SendPro Online offers two plans in Australia. One pay-as-you-go plan where businesses can send parcels via CouriersPlease or Aramex, and a Premium plan, which lets businesses bring their existing accounts and negotiated rates from CouriersPlease, Aramex, Sendle, Australia Post, and StarTrack.

There is unlimited parcel sending with no additional subscription costs, which can be managed in one place for easy order tracking and reconciliation. Orders can be automated and shipping labels can be printed online to reduce processing time and avoid errors.

SendPro Online brings multiple carrier accounts together in one platform for businesses to easily compare pricing and delivery services. Online stores such as eBay, Shopify, and WooCommerce can be integrated into the platform for complete order management, with Amazon coming soon.
