Product Round-up: October 2018
In the era of constant shift in technology, ShipRocket is also striving to innovate and improve its platform to make it more accessible, user-friendly and loaded with features.
The ShipRocket panel keeps getting updated with new features routinely, and we believe it is our responsibility to keep you updated with them!
Here is a short update of what went on in ShipRocket in October!
1) Granular Tracking
With granular tracking enabled, you can now track your orders at the minutest level when they’re going to be picked up, or they are out for delivery.
Get alerts about the following as your shipment moves from one place to another.
- When your shipment is out for pickup
- During transit, when it reaches the source hub, it is en route and also when it reaches the destination hub
- Get notified about Non-delivery reports in real time! (Undelivered shipment after 3 attempts).
- In case of an exception during pickup of any order.
2) Manage information on your label
Sellers can now manage what information they want to display on their shipping label.
If a seller(shipper) does not wish to display their address, mobile number or COD value on the label, they can opt out of this and show the remaining information.
Except for Bluedart and FedEx, all other courier partners offer this option of choosing what information you wish to display on your label.
3) Merchant Logs
You can track your Shiprocket activity easily on the dashboard with the help of an activity log.
To access the merchant log follow the steps mentioned below
- Go to your profile name on the top right corner → drop down → select activities
2. In the activities option, you can track parameters like start time, end time, success count, end count, etc.
You can track the session activities like bulk upload, bulk ship, bulk pick up, channel order sync, upload channel/ master catalog. With this, you are aware of the completion of the task performed and if there was any glitch/hindrance in the process.
Also, if there is any network issue that breaks the process of the task, you can view the success or failure of the process in the activities tab.
