Enhancement Request: Need to see estimated delivery date from UPS and FedEx on the Orders page when each service is requested. This should also be able to be seen when you are looking at an order on the "ready to ship" tab.
Justification/Reason for Enhancement:
- Walmart 2 day Shipping Option: Walmart now offers a free 2-day shipping option. In order to be able to offer this to the largest area possible that I can reach in 2 days by still sending our product ground rates - I need to leverage both UPS and FedEx. Our preferred carrier is UPS and we have lower negotiated rates with them, however FedEx offers a larger footprint for shipping ground. So when it is outside of the footprint that UPS can reach with their ground service, I need to switch to FedEx. This should be able to determined by the estimated delivery date that each service would provide. This allows me to offer my products to the largest selection of customers at the lowest price possible.
- Shipping 101: This is a very basic shipping need when running shipping for a company. We are moving from Shipworks to Shipping Easy and had this option before. It should not be something we have to give up. As the Walmart 2-day shipping becomes even bigger, this will be a deal breaker for me and I am sure other clients.
Since you are already interfacing with UPS and FedEx on some level because you provide pricing based on weight/dimensions I am positive that they have to have some kind of API for you to interface with to make this happen.
I am going to put this under a shipping features request, however it really could also easily be a productivity and profit one as well. This feature will cost me both time and money to not have.
