Learn How to Save on Your FedEx and UPS Shipping Costs

By Team AmeriCommerce - Updated On 2/6/2020

Does your business ship using FedEx or UPS? If so, did you know that you are entitled to refunds on all late s hipments - late by even 60 seconds! Each year, more than $2 billion in shipping refunds goes unclaimed. 71lbs works on your behalf to identify late, lost or damaged shipments, then files and fights your claims to make sure you receive your due refunds.

Mid-size companies to major players all across the country turn to AmeriCommerce for flexibility and control with their revolutionary Multi-Store™ technology, relentless ingenuity, and passion to serve B2B eCommerce better than all the rest. AmeriCommerce has partnered with 71lbs to help their merchants reduce their shipping costs and better understand their shipping expenses.

Are you aware that most comp anies who ship online spend at least 10% of their revenue on shipping? Joe Turner, General Manager of Jellyfish Art, shared their experience with 71lbs: "As a business, we find that customers do not always notify us of situations when shipments arrive late. However, in this case, we are eligible for refunds. 71lbs ensures that we don’t leave money on the table."

71lbs is focused on reducing your total shipping cost and provides a robust dashboard with in-depth shipping analytics to help you better understand what you spend on shipping with FedEx and UPS.

Key Features of 71lbs services:

  • Save Money : Late delivery refunds, lost or damaged packages
  • Understand Complicated Costs & Fees : Robust dashboard with your shipping data in easy to understand analytics
  • Superior Customer Success Team: Live support to discuss your service claims, answer questions or review your dashboard via phone or online chat

The fee for the service is contingent upon the actual refunds you receive. Once the carrier refunds your cost of the shipment, 71lbs will invoice you for a portion.

Lou Guan, DNA Motoring says, "Credits appear directly in our online account with our shipping carrier, and 71 lbs notifies us each week with a detailed report. I would recommend 71 lbs to any business that ships! It just makes sense."
