Shipwire Partner Program applications up 30 percent
We’ve seen a huge increase in interest around our Partner Program over the past year. Agencies, affiliates, developers, and platforms are seeing the benefits of referring to a recognized leader in the third party fulfillment space and are earning significant commissions in the process.
If you’ve signed up for the partner program, but haven’t linked to us on your website or referred your clients to us, the upcoming holiday season is a great time to do that. One or two large clients can generate significant referral commissions for you, and those commissions will scale nicely as we help your merchants get their holidays order volume out the door and into customers’ hands.
If you need a partner ID or referral link, additional marketing material, team training, or other support, please contact us.
Virtual Warehouse Tour
Have you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes at a Shipwire warehouse? We’ve put together a virtual warehouse tour that takes you onto the warehouse floor, walks your through the order fulfillment process, and shows you how information is communicated between the Shipwire platform and the fulfillment center.
This is a great piece to share with clients. Just replace XXXX with your partner ID in the URL below and you’ll get credit for referrals:
Announcing More API Resources for our RESTful API
Shipwire is proud to offer the world’s most robust developer toolset for shipping and logistics. In addition to over 80+ ready-to-use shopping cart and marketplace integrations (full list available here), Shipwire’s RESTful APIs allow for the creation of custom cart connections, integration into ERPs, and marketplace connections.
Since launching our Developer Center last year, we have been busy enhancing the API with additional resources. You may now automate the return process, manage the product catalog, and provide us with advance notice of shipments inbound to our warehouses. We also support webhooks to keep you updated in real-time (without having to poll our API).
Our work around the Developer Center and API is part of our commitment to giving developers and agencies more options for automating e-commerce workflows and simplifying everyday fulfillment tasks. Check out all of our RESTful API updates for more details and read this case study to learn how The Grommet used Shipwire APIs to increase sales by 450 percent.
Shipwire V3 Navigation Launch
On April 14, 2015, Shipwire rolled out updates to the navigation within our web application, making it easier for users to access the tools needed to complete day-to-day tasks. The new navigation is more intuitive, allowing you to find what you’re looking for while working on the tasks and business processes that have always been available within the app. For more on this, please see our V3 Application launch announcement.
Double Check Your Partner Links
When you sign up for the Shipwire partner program, you get a co-branded landing page that automatically tags leads with your partner ID. The link is available on the main page of the Partner Portal and follows this format: http://www.shipwire.com/pp/o.php?id=XXXX
Did you know you can turn any link into a partner link that tags referrals? Just replace XXXX with your partner ID, and put whatever URL you would like after “jxURL=”: http://www.shipwire.com/pp/o.php?id=XXXX&jxURL=https://www.shipwire.com/w/videos/virtual-warehouse-tour/
As always, if there is some way we can help improve our partnership so that you can earn more and increase customer satisfaction, please reach out to us!
