- October 27, 2016 2 MIN READ

End-to-end ecommerce platform, Neto, and door-to-door carbon neutral parcel delivery service, Sendle, are partnering to bring Australian businesses a seamless ecommerce experience from store set-up to sending goods.

Thousands of businesses use Neto’s platform to run their online stores and have cumulatively turned over more than $1 billion through the service, while Sendle facilitates an estimated $100 million in small business commerce annually.

The partnership between the two fast-growing Australian companies offers a solution for entrepreneurs who are struggling to set up or scale an ecommerce business, and manage the logistics behind delivering products to customers.

‘Sendle for Neto’ simplifies ecommerce, billing and shipping, making it easy for Australian businesses to get online and scale efficiently. It gives entrepreneurs and small businesses the ability to set up shop and start shipping their products almost immediately through logistics networks previously reserved for the big end of town. To get their online store up and running all users need to do is “Just add product”.

The partnership means that Neto users receive Sendle’s national flat rate pricing, for 100 percent carbon neutral door-to-door delivery services and without needing to line up at the Post Office. It also means that Neto customers receive a free Sendle Premium account upgrade saving them up to $1 on every parcel and $120 in subscription fees.

Commenting on the partnership, Ryan Murtagh Founder of Neto said, “Neto and Sendle are leading the charge on ecommerce in Australia, and together we have an unrivalled understanding of small businesses. We’re excited to partner with a like-minded company to offer an out of the box solution to help Aussie small businesses grow online.”

James Chin Moody, CEO and founder of Sendle said, “With its deep experience in online retail Neto knows too well that logistics is traditionally one of the major pain points for ecommerce businesses. By becoming Neto’s delivery provider, we make shipping simple, reliable and affordable for thousands of merchants across Australia.”

Catherine Bainbridge, Founder of Elevate Design said, “As a Neto customer and an ecommerce operator, news of this partnership with Sendle is music to my ears. Having Sendle integrated as a delivery provider on the platform will simplify online sales and product delivery for small business owners like myself who are often time poor and working with limited resources.

“For many years, I’ve dealt directly with couriers, which can be time consuming. The Neto Sendle integration cuts out the duplicate work when placing orders, the need to meet minimum quantity volumes and time spent chasing up couriers on the status of deliveries. It also means I won’t need to pay a big postage sum upfront for pre-paid satchels or have my funds locked up in delivery coupons. It takes the friction out of my day-to-day and frees me up to focus on the business,” said Catherine.
