EFI Inks Licensing Agreement for Paid Inc.’s Patented Online Shipping Calculation Technology

BOSTON & FOSTER CITY, Calif. (PRWEB) January 16, 2008

    “EFI’s Internet applications are used by thousands of printing companies and their customers, resulting in tens of thousands of shipments, so it was important for us to enable these clients to show actual or estimated shipping charges to their own customers in real time as they added items into their shopping carts,” said Chuck Gehman, EFI director of product management for Web-to-Print. “We want the end customer to be able to compare the charges between different carriers and different shipping methods, and Paid’s API enables us to do that at a very affordable rate.”

For EFI, and for eCommerce companies in general, shopping cart abandonment is a problem that they are seeking to solve. According to Practical eCommerce, “Seventy-two percent of shoppers cite shipping as a top reason for shopping cart abandonment.” With estimates in and Forrester Research’s “State of Retailing Online 2007” study that online retail sales, excluding travel, were $ 146.5 billion in 2006 and were projected to grow to $ 174.5 billion for 2007, few companies want to risk losing shoppers once they have lured them to their sites. Additionally, a groundbreaking research study by Jupiter analyst Ken Cassar revealed that the largest percentage of ecommerce customers believe that shipping and handling charges should be a function of product weight.

“A priority for us is providing our clients with a way to make more sales, including the prevention of shopping cart abandonment where possible,” Gehman stated. “Since they are selling print jobs, shipping charges can vary greatly depending on what is ordered. Therefore, it is extremely important that we allow them to make comparisons among carriers and provide shipping data during the ordering process, rather than offering flat rate shipping or show shipping costs after the order is placed. After examining several API solutions in the market, we found that Paid’s solution provides exactly what we need with a considerable time-to-market advantage, as well as a low cost of ownership.”

The online shipping calculation technology enables EFI to automatically calculate multiple carrier shipping, packaging, insurance and handling costs for orders placed through its clients’ web sites as each item is added to the shopping cart, eliminating the surprise of true shipping costs at check-out. EFI also plans to have its call center operators use the API to calculate shipping charges for phone orders in order to provide customers with total order cost instantly.

“We’re pleased to welcome EFI as a customer, for our shipping calculation API,” said Richard Rotman, Paid CFO and CTO. “EFI approached us nearly a year ago when they recognized the value of our shipping calculation API. They are a perfect example of the type of customer that can benefit from our API, because the products shipped by their customers vary in size and weight and are shipped to a wide range of destinations, as is typical of many eCommerce companies. We’re looking forward to helping them provide their customers with accurate shipping costs that can help reduce shopping cart abandonment and ultimately result in more sales and happier customers.”

Rotman noted, “Although it is commonplace now for companies to use a zip code as a location indicator to help them calculate shipping charges, when we developed and applied for our patent in this area more than five years ago, the concept was cutting edge. We’re still leading the industry in providing real-time shipping costs and comparisons among carriers based on the actual size, weight and other criteria of the merchandise as it is placed in or removed from the shopping cart. We anticipate signing additional licensing agreements for astute companies like EFI that see the cost efficiencies and enhanced customer service to be gained through our API. We also expect to pursue licensing agreements specifically relating to our newly patented technology.”
