Shippo is a shipping API for businesses. Shippo integrates with many shopping carts and handles all of the heavy lifting of shipping so you don't have to. It supports USPS, UPS, FedEx, Canada Post, DHL, Australia Post, Royal Post, Hermes, and more.
Textline is a SMS API that allows businesses to integrate with text message marketing services. Textline serves as a hub that integrates with your business and then it connects with all of the major SMS providers in the United States and Canada. Your business can send out text messages without having to build SMS into your app. This is useful for e-commerce businesses such as eBay and Shopify because users would not be able to add things to their cart if they had to go through an extra step of sending an SMS before adding items to their cart.
When a user places an order on an e-commerce website and chooses to ship internationally there are many steps invpved in the process:
The user has to pay for shipping which might include customs charges and tax charges depending on the country. The user has to put in the address and contact information for the recipient which includes the customs code for the country. The vendor has to declare the value of the package so they can calculate taxes and duties on the package. The vendor has to print out a label and attach it to the package. The vendor has to take the package to a carrier pickup location or schedule a home delivery from a carrier. The vendor also has to carry insurance on the package in case it gets lost or damaged. The carrier picks up the package from a vendor's home or office and delivers it to the recipient's address which could be a business or residential address. All of these steps require time and manpower.
For small e-commerce stores this can add up to a lot of work. They have to hire someone who does nothing but international shipping because it is too much work for someone else in their company to do on an ongoing basis. However, Shippo helps make this process easier by taking some of the work out of the process of shipping internationally. By integrating Shippo into a website a merchant will be able to automate a lot of the international shipping process by using Shippo's API to handle all of the heavy lifting of shipping internationally while still maintaining contrp over the shipping process by going through their website. This saves merchants time and money while providing better experiences for their customers since they don't have to fill out all of the information every time they want to purchase something online.
The benefits of Shippo's integration with Textline are numerous. One benefit is that it allows customers to place orders faster because they no longer have to go through extra steps like filling out information before completing an order. Another benefit is that it makes it easier for vendors to ship internationally because they are saving time by not having to fill out all of the information every time someone orders something from their website.
Integration with Textline makes importing data easier because it removes all of the scrpling, clicking, typing, copying, pasting, etc., that is required when importing data manually. However, integration with Textline also makes it possible for customers to import data through use of SMS messages so vendors don't have to spend time manually importing data into their website.
