Who we are:What we have created:
Our Company, founded in 1999, focused on its first two years in business on developing tools for our own eCommerce and auction channels. We created a patented shipping calculator for eBay in 2001 to reduce shipping related costs and increase sales by combining merchandise in one order. We then continued to develop more products that capitalized on our growing expertise in managing shipping in an ecommerce environment. Our products, "home-grown" out of our own need, with ourselves always as the first customer, now offer our shipping technology in a variety of packages for different situations, but always focus on doing things the right way and recognizing the "real-life" business needs of ecommerce vendors.
We have evolved into the most knowledgable providers of accurate Internet shipping calculations in the industry. Using our proprietary technology we have developed cutting edge tools for online sellers. First a driving force behind auction tools and management, now our business is providing solutions for the entire ecommerce industry. These new solutions provide comprehensive shipping, insurance, handling and sales tax calculations from the smallest seller to the largest Internet retailers.

Why we created it:
A recent article written by Monte Enbysk cited Ken Cassar, a veteran retail analyst, as saying “Shipping and handling fees represent one of the biggest quandaries that e-commerce business' face today. Consumers hate them but merchants can’t survive covering the freight themselves. Charge shipping fees that web shoppers consider excessive and you lose, they’ll abandon your cart and take their business elsewhere. Charge fees that don’t cover your costs and you lose even bigger—you’ll be taking your business to bankruptcy court."
Who are our products for:
Our products can be used by any individual or business to streamline their sales process and simplify today's shipping complexities. Whether you sell 5 items a month or 5,000, our products make your life simple. You can sell automobile rims or baseball cards, from the smallest widget to the largest Plasma TV.
