It’s just over five years ago where I planned to get into the travel business. In fact, I wanted to get it on really slow and with no hassles whatsoever so I started out with a small souvenir store nothing more. I had planned to maybe spend two or three hours a day in my store at maximum.
What I did not expect was that my little souvenir store quickly got quite popular, mostly because of worth of mouth advertising. It also didn’t expect to get enquiries for my postcards and other touristy staff from as far as China or Japan.
Low and behold, it didn’t take half a year and work started to pile up…
Would you know how much it will cost to send a snow globe to Beijing? Would you know whether it’s even possible to send those to your customers in China? (China sure has some strict import regulations, let me tell you…)
This was when I investigated several software packages whether they can help me with my business. And this was also when I came across shipping software, the software package that I think help most with my troubles back then.
The shipping software allows to me to always know about the current shipping costs, no matter where I sent my merchandise. And it also immediately informs me when there is a potential problem with certain types of goods. (You would be surprised what a challenge it can be to mail certain goods to some countries!)
So if you are in a similar situation and struggle with all those problems such as different shipping costs and customs regulations I recommend that you get shipping software to help you out.
