If you own an ecommerce business, the shipping model will depend on your weekly or monthly parcel shipments. You can either choose self-serve or postpaid shipping.

However, some online businesses with big volumes still prefer doing everything themselves, which takes up so much of their time.

There’s a better way to optimize your time. But to let you understand better, let’s explore the differences between self-serve shipping and postpaid courier services.

What is self-serve shipping?

Self-serve shipping allows sellers or businesses to handle the entire shipping process themselves. Here’s how it generally works here:

  1. Seller will pack the orders
  2. Seller will bring the packages to the courier dropoff points
  3. At the dropoff point, seller will fill out the waybills and pay for the shipping
  4. The courier will then pack the packages inside their pouches or boxes. They’ll also attach the waybill and shipping information
  5. Parcel will be processed for delivery and the shipper will be given a tracking number to track the parcels’ progress

Depending on the courier, sellers also have the option to book the pickup from their location. 

While this may be more convenient, it’s still time consuming as the seller can only start filling out the waybills and pack the orders using the courier pouches or boxes upon the riders’ arrival.

The rider will also have to wait for the seller to finish packing. If you’re shipping out many orders, this is not the best way to do it.

What is postpaid shipping?

On the other hand, postpaid shipping involves the courier company or logistics provider handling the shipping process and billing the shipper later. This model is commonly used by businesses with established shipping accounts.

Postpaid shipping is more efficient and convenient for growing ecommerce businesses.

It’s also the more convenient option for growing ecommerce businesses to streamline their shipping process so they can focus on other things. How does it work?

Shipping setup. The business sets up a shipping account with a logistics provider. 

Shipping request. When the business needs to send a package, they provide the shipping details (sender, recipient, package dimensions, etc.) to the courier.

Courier handles the shipping process. The courier service arranges for parcel pickup, packaging (if required), labeling and delivery. The courier may also handle customs documentation for international shipments.

Billing. The courier bills the business periodically (e.g., monthly) for the shipping services provided. The bill includes the cost of shipping and any additional services requested.
