AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - August 29, 2017) - ShippingEasy, an innovative provider of the leading cloud-based solutions for e-commerce sellers of all sizes, has been awarded a Content Marketing Award (Best Digital Publication - Editorial) for its E-Commerce Seller's Guide to 2017 Rate Changes, a comprehensive must-read report that helped prepare online sellers for the 2017 rate changes from all major carriers including UPS, FedEx, and USPS.

The Content Marketing Awards (CMA) is the largest and longest-running international content marketing awards program in the world. With this award, the Content Marketing Institute has recognized ShippingEasy's Rate Change Guide as a key go-to resource online sellers could use to not only understand the 2017 rate changes, but to also develop shipping strategies to mitigate the impact those changes have on their e-commerce businesses.

This year's panel of all-star judges reviewed more than 1,100 entries to choose the "best of the best" in content marketing excellence, recognizing all aspects of content marketing -- from strategy to distribution, and from editorial to design.

In collaboration with Value Intersect Consulting, ShippingEasy published the E-Commerce Seller's Guide to 2017 Rate Changes in December, 2016 to help prepare online sellers for the upcoming rate changes. The report included:

  • A Summary of the Rate Changes and What They Mean: A clear understanding of the changes across all major carriers, offering a side-by-side comparison of the changes along with guidance on how to interpret them to enable better business and shipping decisions.
  • Tools for Determining the Most Cost-Effective Carrier for a Given Set of Shipping Parameters: Utilizing easy-to-use tables, e-commerce sellers quickly determined what carrier provides the best pricing for a package, and whether there are alternative services to consider (e.g. USPS First-Class Mail®, USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate® or USPS Priority Mail Regional Rate® boxes).
  • Examples of How the Changes Impact Real-World E-commerce Businesses: ShippingEasy analyzed its proprietary shipping data to demonstrate the impact of the rate increases across specific industries, and how a seller can mitigate their impact by looking at alternative carriers and/or services given various shipping parameters.
