2-hour same-day delivery launches for Australian Shopify merchants

Same day delivery for Australian Shopify merchants

Sam Forde

We’re delighted to announce the latest addition to the ever-growing list of Store Pickup + Delivery integrations. For the first time, Australian Shopify merchants will be able to integrate their Shopify store with Sherpa: the local-delivery provider with a network of thousands of drivers.

Fast, flexible local delivery offers merchants a competitive advantage in a market where customers increasingly expect high levels of convenience. That consumer demand has led to huge growth in the last-mile delivery market. MarketWatch projected that globally, the sector was worth $30.2b in 2018 and is on its way towards $55.2b by 2025.

That dramatic growth has created opportunities for top-quality new operators like Sherpa to enter the market. Their highly-rated service gives merchants the ability to offer 2-hour, 4-hour and same-day delivery options with pricing the scales dynamically based on demand, volume and distances.

Sherpa’s drivers can all be tracked in real-time which makes it easy to check progress and keep an eye on the most urgent deliveries.

Andrew Cargill, Zapiet’s founder: “It’s always a pleasure to partner with companies who offer their customers outstanding service, and Sherpa is no exception. We’re also really pleased to make business easier for our Shopify clients in Australia.”
Bastien Vetault, Sherpa’s CEO: “We're excited to be offering Shopify merchants a seamless integration between their online store and our on-demand delivery service. Removing the hassle of manual uploads for retailers, and providing their customers transparency of delivery tracking, our users are sure to love it. Thanks, Zapiet!”

The integration passes orders between Shopify Store Pickup + Delivery and Sherpa. The automation also reduces opportunities for error, improving customer satisfaction.

Using Store Pickup + Delivery’s powerful customisations, merchants can set which districts and regions they offer delivery in, have granular control of rates and fees and manage which products are offered for delivery. The app also manages courier pickup to ensure drivers don’t arrive before deliveries are ready for collection.
