Tracking your parcels

How branded order tracking can increase retention and revenue

9th April 2021, 5:04am in Services by Shauna Mulholland

Normally, if a purchase is made through a site, customers are sent to the carriers order tracking page. These pages are usually full of marketing on behalf of the carrier, this includes their logo and links to their website. Your customer will be opening their shipping confirmation over and over to check the progress of their product, and it is the carriers logo they see.

With Interparcels branded tracking, your customer will receive a customised link which has your logo and a promotional banner on your page. This can be another opportunity to connect with your customer and develop their brand loyalty.

Upselling and Cross Selling

One of the best ways to convert a first time buyer into a repeat buyer is up-selling or cross selling your products.

Have you ever noticed when you receive a confirmation email from Amazon, on your shipping confirmation they include 'Customers also liked…'. According to research by Forrester, this type of product upselling can equate to 10-30% extra revenue.

With Interparcels Branded Tracking page you can add a promotional banner that can include promotional discounts, up-coming events or new products.

Seamless brand experience

Your customers want a seamless omni-channel experience from start to finish. Ensuring your tracking page has the visuals and colours of your brand will help create this. We have created our branded tracking portal with SME's in mind, empowering you to design your own tracking page. This includes your logo, brand colours, a promotional banner and a custom URL.

This allows you to keep your brand in the forefront of your customers minds when they are tracking their order. Creating a seamless branded experience from start to finish.

Builds trust

Not knowing where a product is after purchase can be the source of anxiety for many. With Interparcels Branded Tracking page, your customers will be able to have live updates on the whereabouts of their orders.
