When you sell physical online, shipping fees can make up one of your biggest expenses. This is why as an online seller myself, I get excited when new shipping services launch.
About a few months ago, Poslaju launched its own self-service online shipping platform, SendParcel.
With SendParcel, you can:
- Create and pay for consignment notes online
- Track your shipments
- Keep an address book of your customers
In this post, I'll spend some time reviewing the platform so you can decide if SendParcel can be a good shipping option for your business.
If you've been considering SendParcel, or simply new alternatives to EasyParcel, Shippop or any other shipping aggregators, this will be useful for you.
Let's get started:
Postage rates on SendParcel is pretty good. For example, a 1kg shipment from 47000 (Rawang, Selangor) to 10250 (Georgetown, Penang) will cost you either RM10.03 on a normal account and RM6.30 when you top up.
The rates here are pretty comparable to those offered on other platforms.
The top-up interface reminds me of EasyParcel's. You get to choose between RM50, RM100, up to RM20,000.
Remember, if you want to take advantage of the exclusive rates, you'll need to top up.
You can pay for your top up using credit card, debit card and FPX payments.
Other than getting exclusive rates, if you top up above RM1,000, you'll also get free Poslaju flyers. Personally, I find Poslaju flyers to be of better quality than EasyParcel's, so this is a pretty good deal.
Buying shipping on SendParcel is just like buying from Poslaju counters. So you'll be able to send anywhere Poslaju covers.
Having used SendParcel for sending parcels to customers, I found the experience pretty good. Most people should have no problem using the platform, especially if you have some experience with other aggregators.
Now, I had pretty low expectations for integrations since SendParcel is still pretty new.
Interestingly enough, SendParcel integrates with Shopify.
I've not yet tested this with Shopify, but will update this review once I do.
Unfortunately, at this moment, that's all it integrates with. So if you're on another platform like WooCommerce, you're out of luck.
I really do hope SendParcel adds in more integrations, though.
How to Get Started with SendParcel
Step 1: Get an Eziemall account
To use SendParcel, you need to first sign up for a Pos account. This is an all-in-1 account where you can access services under Pos such as Eziemall, SendParcel, etc.
Once you have this account, you can then login to SendParcel and start using the service right away.
Step 2: Buy top up or create shipment
Inside the platform, you'll be able to buy top up. Choose the top up plan you want, and make payment.
The top up will add credits to your account based on the top up plan you selected.
Step 3: Send parcels!
With an account and credits ready, you can now send parcels with SendParcel. When you do send them, you can then track your shipments inside SendParcel.
Verdict: Good Option for E-commerce Businesses
Poslaju's SendParcel is a good option for e-commerce businesses to send parcels to their customers. To enjoy SendParcel's exclusive rates though, you'll need to top up.
If you use Shopify, you can even integrate SendParcel into your e-commerce website natively.
Overall, SendParcel is a good contender in the shipping space and is here to stay. Personally, I've used SendParcel for a couple of months now and the experience has been pretty good. I would highly recommend it to e-commerce business owners.
