If you’re running a trading platform for private individuals (C2C) you can optimize your users’ experience by becoming a Digital Affiliate and provide our shipping tool in exchange for a commission. You can offer simple and efficient shipping directly on the platform without the need to order any shipping services yourself. You can also become a contracted partner of PostNord and provide our services according to your own pricing directly on the marketplace.
Acting as a Digital Affiliate?
Being an affiliate of PostNord means that, if you run your own website for trade between private individuals, you can offer your users smooth and efficient shipping services via your own platform. For example, a person who sells a product to another person can easily purchase delivery via PostNord, print the shipping label and send the package. As the host of the platform you don’t need to order any shipping services yourself, nor manage any practical aspects of shipment purchases from users.
How does the solution for C2C platforms work?
You improve the overall experience of your digital marketplace by offering shipping directly in connection with the purchase of a product from one individual to another.
Here’s how it works:
- When the user buys a product the seller can order shipping via a seamless integration with PostNord’s services.
- The buyer’s and seller’s addresses and details are automatically scanned.
- Once the seller has ordered shipping they are sent back to your platform.
- The seller can then print the shipping label and leave the package at the closest post office.
In other words, the buyer can choose delivery method when making the purchase, which improves the shopping experience. The buyer can then easily track the package in our app or directly on your platform if you prefer.
The seller can easily schedule pickup and print the shipping label which also contributes to a sense of efficiency on your platform. What happens if the seller doesn’t have a printer? They can print the shipping label at a package collection point instead. This is practical and appreciated by many.
What about yourself? Well, you don’t need to do anything at all when a purchase takes place. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
