Low Cost Parcels is a relative new-comer to the UK postal carrier market. Established only in 2012, they have already made a name for themselves as an affordable courier service in a competitive market. Part of the Collect Group, their main business focus is eCommerce companies, particularly those selling via marketplaces such as Etsy, eBay and Amazon. Small and medium-sized companies are often attracted by the same-day collection service (if booked before midday) and economy packages, which deliver in 2-3 days for a low price.
Low Cost Parcels have industry-leading despatch software which allows customers to link directly to their marketplaces, review orders and track shipments. Their national operation is managed by a dedicated team of regional managers with local knowledge and expertise - your account manager often has seniority and expertise within the company making it easier for them to resolve issues and answer queries.
Services from Low Cost Parcels include next day delivery, same day and economy. To create Low Cost Parcel connection with your company’s website can help to speed up order processing times. However, API integration can be expensive and often requires an external developer which is often time-consuming. Furthermore, customised development can seem wasteful if what you really want is the ability to pick and choose from the different couriers available for each type of delivery.
After signing up with Courier API, your company will instantly have access to extensive shipping functionality with Low Cost Parcel and many other delivery and distribution solutions providers (Royal Mail, Hermes, Yodel, DHL to name just a few!). Courier API automates delivery services by providing your online store with shipping presets that can be used for all your deliveries, based on the dimensions, weight or value of the parcel or even the recipient’s location.
