New! Shipping template automation via API available soon

Marketplace sellers will soon be able to create automated shipping templates via API. With this new feature, you can calculate the transit time for your U.S. customers’ orders based on your selected carrier and the zip code of your fulfillment center(s). This allows for a more accurate transit time to be added to your shipping template, which ultimately helps provide more timely delivered orders.

Stay tuned for more information!

It’s a small gift from us to you to help simplify building your Marketplace catalog during the holidays and beyond.
