In today’s digital world, online retail has become one of the most important sales platforms. Efficient shipping management is essential to ensure customer satisfaction and increase business success. In this blog post, you will learn how you can optimize your logistics processes by using shipment data export and shipment tracking.

Especially for store systems based on Mirakl, shipment data export has been added as the latest feature in easybill. Of course, we already support many marketplaces and online stores for shipping optimization, but many store systems, such as Shopapotheke, Fressnapf, MediaMarktSaturn and others, are based on Mirakl technology, which is why we would like to highlight them separately.

The importance of shipment data export for online stores

The shipment data export plays a central role in shipment management and therefore also for the easybill Import Manager. By exporting relevant shipping data, you can better monitor and analyze your delivery processes. This leads to faster order processing and more efficient supply chain management. In addition, exporting shipment data enables smooth communication with logistics partners and allows you to identify and resolve potential problems at an early stage.

Your customers will also be impressed by the transparency of the data. You will certainly be able to save a few inquiries about the status of the shipment. This in turn leads to a positive customer experience and could ultimately result in a positive rating for you, your store and your products.

Advantages of optimized shipping data management

Well-structured shipping data management offers numerous advantages. These include, among others:

  • Reduced shipping costs: By analyzing shipping data, cost-efficient shipping methods can be identified and implemented.
  • Improved delivery speed: Optimized shipping processing leads to faster delivery times and thus increases the satisfaction of your customers.
  • Transparency and traceability: Detailed shipping data allows you to accurately track the status of each order and provide your customers with up-to-date information.
  • Efficient returns processing: Well-organized shipping data management facilitates the processing of returns and refunds.

The role of tracking in the shipping process

Tracking information is an essential part of successful shipping management. It enables both you and your customers to track the current status of an order at any time. This creates trust and increases customer satisfaction. In addition, tracking data allows you to identify bottlenecks in the delivery process and take appropriate measures to resolve them.

Implementation of a tracking system in your online store

Implementing an effective tracking system in your online store is easier than you might think. Many shipping service providers already offer ready-made solutions that can be seamlessly integrated into your existing system. Make sure that the system you choose is user-friendly and offers added value for both you and your customers. Make sure that your customers receive automatic notifications about the shipping status of their orders and that they can easily access tracking information.

Use of the shipment data export in easybill

In easybill, shipment data is already transmitted for almost all common marketplaces and store systems. In fact, you can transfer tracking information for the following connections: Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Gambio, all stores based on Mirakl, OTTO, Kaufland Globald Marketplace, Shopware and Shopify. You can find detailed instructions in the easybill Help Center.

easybill users can conveniently create the shipping data directly from the imported order data and transmit it to the desired shipping service provider. The shipment data is then imported again and sent back to the marketplace or online store.
