All right. You’ve got the products. You’ve got an ecommerce website with a finely tuned checkout process. But you don’t have the kind of conversion rate you would like and shopping cart abandonment is an ongoing problem. Maybe visitors to your site just don’t trust you.
While the cost of shipping and handling has long been the number one reason that people abandon shopping carts, fear also makes the list.

Better yet, is that Canadians can now get in on the pain-free fulfillment solution that Shipwire offers by sending goods to their new Canadian warehouse in Toronto, Ontario. Utilizing Shopify for your ecommerce software, coupled with our dead simple Shipwire order fulfillment integration really can help remove the stress from your holiday season.
