Delivery Options is an API designed for eCommerce sellers. It lets you display relevant delivery choices to consumers browsing your website.
It works by checking which services can fulfil a consumer's order and by what date. It checks aspects such as warehouse operating times, which carriers are enabled, their availability and routing times, and can a service be used for the shipment's weights and dimensions. The results can then be displayed on your product and checkout pages.
This ensures that you only show consumers the services that can fulfil a customer’s orders. Whilst also calculating and displaying accurate delivery dates that you can meet.
Delivery Options integrates with Delivery Manager. This means all your shipping configuration such as carriers, carrier services, and selection rules are automatically reflected on your website.
Slow, costly, and inconvenient delivery choices are key reasons for online basket abandonment. Delivery Options makes it easy to add the right delivery choices, while ensuring you keep your delivery promises.
Drive footfall to stores
It's been a hard time for stores post the pandemic. Delivery Options lets you enable click-and-collect on your website. This can lower shipping costs and drive footfall to your stores, helping encourage in-store purchases.
Remove delivery anxiety
Scrap estimated delivery dates that can cause anxiety around an order not arriving on time. Let customers know exactly when their orders will arrive by calculating accurate delivery dates.
Reduce web development
