ParcelPath is a stand-alone shipping platform known as a Freemium SaaS (Software as a Service). Our platform allows our clients to ship from any phone/computer/tablet, no matter where they are located. ParcelPath works with UPS and USPS to provide 50-89% discounts over what you would pay by walking into a FedEx Office/UPS Store or Post Office.
ParcelPath works with over 12,500 businesses in the US to save them money on direct-to-consumer fulfillment. We are now branching out to work with individuals and families. Since our platform is 100% free, there is very little friction to keep someone from trying ParcelPath.
For businesses, we provide a single location for them to manage their different storefronts like Etsy, Shopify, eBay, etc. By integrating their stores with ParcelPath, they can handle all shipments in one place. ParcelPath also offers analytical insights about their shipping and provides reporting that can enhance their overall effectiveness. (Example: Shipping to the West Coast gives us 10% of additional margin based on our location, so let’s focus our
marketing efforts in that area.)
Individuals and Families:
For individuals and families, it is very straightforward. Our platform is free, and you will save 50-89% by printing your label at home and dropping it off at the Post Office or UPS Store. You can also schedule a pick-up on our platform and have UPS or your mail carrier pick it up. With ParcelPath, there is no more standing in line at the post office when you can drop off your package and avoid the hassle.
ParcelPath is very lean, and we have relied primarily on word of mouth for our growth. ParcelPath is paid by the carriers based on the total shipping volume that comes through our platform. Most of our competition charges a monthly subscription fee or a per-label fee and is compensated by the carriers in the same way ParcelPath is. Collecting subscription fees gives them the ability to spend more on marketing. ParcelPath has chosen to eliminate any apprehension or friction by making our offering free to everyone, and so far, it is working very well.
ParcelPath is rolling out another feature that allows UPS clients to get a barcode on their phone rather than a shipping label. They can then take this barcode to any UPS Store, and when scanned, it produces the stick-on label. They simply attach it to the package, and they are done.
ParcelPath is focused on helping small businesses grow and helping individuals and families save money on shipping.
ParcelPath’s proposition is simple. If we can save you money and make your life a little easier, we would love the opportunity to earn your business. We allow people to check our shipping rates on our website before signing up. Full transparency is what our customers want.
ParcelPath helps people ship smarter and save money. Things are tough right now, and we are trying to make a difference. We care about small business owners, we care about families, we care about this economy, and we want to help.
