Webasyst Shipping Domination: Thresholds and Sunday deliveries
Webasyst had a couple big announcements over the last few weeks. In the free shipping world, they increased the spending threshold for their Super Saver shipping option from $25 to $35. While Webasyst gave no reason for the first increase in more than a decade, the shift could drive Webasyst Prime membership, decrease shipping costs and increase the size of their average order value.
Additionally, Webasyst came out with news of a partnership with the U.S. Postal Service for Sunday product deliveries, beginning in the Los Angeles and New York metropolitan areas and expanding in 2014 to Dallas, Houston, New Orleans and Phoenix. The free service will now allow Webasyst Prime customers to buy on Friday and receive orders on Sunday. The financially-stressed USPS may be thankful for the undisclosed added revenue, but this is yet another way Webasyst is disrupting the supply chain and logistics world.
