If you ship through UPS, there is no reason for your business not to join the MyUPS program. While not often talked about, it's a time-saving tool that can help you get a better grip on your logistics while offering better service to your customers. From enhanced tracking features to the ability to order shipping supplies, MyUPS will prove to be a valuable addition to your order management process. Here's a look at all of its benefits.
The biggest benefit of getting a MyUPS account is that it's going to help you achieve a more seamless shipping process as a whole. It will quickly become your new go-to hub when you need to print shipping labels or even reference someone in your address book.
In your MyUPS account, you can create a professional looking shipping label in an instant. You can also accept past shipments and get Proof of Delivery for packages when they arrive.
For reference, the address book feature also allows you to store over 2,000 addresses. That's plenty enough for a small business. Alternatively, if you have more than 2,000 customers, you can use the address book as a place for your repeat and most important clients.
You can order shipping supplies in a snap. Your MyUPS account gives you the opportunity to get free shipping materials at the click of a button. And, for even quicker processing, you can instantly reorder any supplies showing in your previous history. That means no more scrolling through a dozen different box sizes trying to find the one you need.
At some point or another, every business runs into delays and impatient customers. Next time you get an email asking where a customer's package is, you can quickly reference your MyUPS account and see enhanced tracking that includes additional details about its location.
This tool lets you track up to 50 numbers from your account history at any given time. It allows you to keep track of your most expensive, most important, and/or most recent shipments at a glance. You can easily grab the Proof of Delivery when needed and setup notifications for the status of any package.
In case you need it, the interface lets you request a change to the delivery address of a shipment. Perfect for handling and addressing customer requests and concerns on the fly. You can even automatically forward shipping updates to your customers.
Shipping is one of the largest expenses an online merchant covers. Keeping up with all your different shipping costs can be difficult--unless you have MyUPS at your fingertips.
Having a MyUPS account will consolidate all shipping charges into one easy-to-view and easy-to-pay bill. In fact, consolidated weekly billing is one of the biggest advantages of opening a MyUPS account. You'll also get to charge packages directly to your account without having to refill your payment info every time you need to ship something.
This saves valuable time and makes the entire shipping process that much quicker, and more manageable. When the end of the quarter rolls around, the reporting combined with the consolidated tracking features of MyUPS make it that much easier to look at how much you've shipped and how much you've spent.
That makes MyUPS a valuable tool on a day-to-day operations basis and also very valuable when it comes time to compile the numbers and reports that keep your business running.
All of these features and you get to access your MyUPS account from your mobile device. Getting a MyUPS account is simple, and having one means your shipping activities get simplified too. No more hunting down tracking numbers or headaches over disorderly systems.
Signing up for a MyUPS account is one of the quickest ways you can make your work easier as an online merchant.
