*Without Shipping Saint

Shipping Saint˚ offers robust yet simple packing & shipping solutions designed specifically for Online Auction Houses and Pack & Ship Stores. We streamline Inventory Management, Customer Communications, Labor & Material Tracking, Shipping Quotes and more, all with easy drag-and-drop functionality.

 

AUTOMATE ROUTINE CUSTOMER COMMUNICATIONS

Shipping Saint automatically texts & emails your winning bidders their invoice, giving them the ability to pay quickly and easily from their phone or email. If the account remains unpaid, it sends periodic follow-up reminders. You're notified immediately upon payment. Once the order ships, the tracking number is sent to your customer. 

INCREASE THE NUMBER & SPEED OF PAYMENTS

Accepting customer payments via automated text & email invoicing gives your customers the ability to view their invoice and make payment immediately, so you get paid and can process orders more quickly. With text invoicing, users report nearly twice the number of payments within the first 2 hours,  increasing the number of same-day shipments. 

SINGLE ENTRY FOR MULTIPLE PLATFORMS

Different online auction platforms use different spreadsheet and image formats for uploading auction information. Shipping Saint automatically re-formats the data from each platform, providing a single, standardized format. There's no need to double-enter information for shipping. In fact, you don't need to re-input information for shipping at all; formats to ensure uniform identification in our system, allowing you a single, consistent format. There's no need to double enter information!

TOUCHSCREEN INTERFACE OFFERS DRAG & DROP EASE

Shipping Saint’s touchscreen interface makes bulk packing-and-shipping a breeze. By integrating data from online auction platforms, shipping carriers and insurers, we streamline shipping logistics, inventory management, labeling, insuring and more. With Shipping Saint, access to all the information you need is at your fingertips!

COMPARE RATES TO MAKE SHIPPING PROFITABLE

Integrated with all major carriers, Shipping Saint allows you to view, compare shipping rates and select your chosen carrier for each item. Shipping Saint’s discounted shipping rates allow you to customize markup for each carrier. By setting your own profit margins on top of our great discounted rates, shipping can become an additional revenue stream for your business!

VERIFY CUSTOMER SHIPPING ADDRESSES

Shipping Saint verifies addresses with the National Address Database, reducing shipping errors or returned packages due to "address not found" results by the carrier. We also require that the buyer verify the shipping address before viewing or paying their shipping invoice, as well as to indicate whether they would like you to ship the item to them or hold it for pick-up. 

ASSIGN APPROPRIATE INSURANCE COVERAGE

Knowing the sale price of each item, Shipping Saint can automatically assign the appropriate amount of insurance coverage for each shipment - even multi-item shipments. We also handle claims. By coordinating auction houses, carriers, insurance providers and buyers, the claims process is more efficient, reduces fraud and gets more claims approved.

IMPROVE SHIPPING LABEL EFFICIENCY

Print shipping labels for all your paid invoices at the push of a button. Shipping labels for all paid invoices can be printed with a single click. No more re-entering addresses or printing labels one at a time. The label printing process is completed in seconds, not minutes or hours!

TRACK LABOR AND INVENTORY COSTS

Shipping Saint automatically tracks labor time and packing supply inventory as part of the on-screen packing workflow. You'll know just how much the process costs you to better set your packing rates and make the packing & shipping process profitable.

SCRAP THE PAPER TRAIL WITH DIGITAL RECORDS

Shipping Saint electronically maintains the selling data and the ability to pull, pack, label and ship from a table or mobile device, eliminating the need for keeping reams of paper after the sale.

WE HANDLE CLAIMS FOR DAMAGED SHIPMENTS

By coordinating auction houses, carriers, insurance providers and buyers, the claims process is more efficient, reduces fraud and gets more claims approved.

ABOUT

SHIPPING

SAINT

DSC04548.jpg

Our Mission: Shipping Saint seeks to be a blessing to all within its influence using automation software to maximize efficiency in our customers’ business.

It started with a problem. Possibly the same one you have. A small pack-and-ship store in Illinois had as much shipping as it could handle. Possibly more. Tasked by one of its customers — a neighboring auction house — with packing and shipping an expanding online auction trade, the increased online auction load was doubling — even tripling — its shipping volume. Even for a company whose business was packing and shipping, the task was overwhelming. Late nights and weekends, overflowing storage spaces, excessive paperwork, chaos, disorder and stress. There had to be a better way.

The owner of the pack-and-ship business reached out to a friend — an accountant and efficiency expert — to analyze the packing workflow and offer ideas for making operations run more smoothly, efficiently and profitably. After a few days observing and studying the pack-and-ship operation, a solution was formed: automate the routine processes. Combine several data entry points to eliminate double entry. Essentially, streamline the entire workflow. Shipping Saint was born.

 

Shipping Saint is software that makes the complex bulk packing and shipping process easy, reducing labor costs, improving customer satisfaction and increasing the volume your company is able to handle so you can increase profits.
