How We Choose the Best Courier Service

You may be wondering about the order in which couriers are displayed in your dashboard. In this guide, we will show you how Easyship chooses the listed courier services and how you can sort through our picks to suit your preferences. 

What we'll cover

Best Value Courier

When a shipment is created in the Easyship Dashboard, Easyship determines the best value courier based on the price to delivery time ratio, tracking service and rating. We will display this option as our #1 recommendation and the next best value options will be displayed in descending order below it.

In the example below, you can see that our #1 pick reflects the fastest delivery time, best tracking service and also the lowest cost. A great value option!

Sort Couriers Based on Your Preferences

Alternatively, you can sort your courier list based on other filters such as Delivery Time, Tracking, Rating, Service Options or Total Cost.

Simply click on the arrow next to the heading, to re-sort the couriers based on your selection.

Take a look at the example below. We've sorted the couriers based on "Total Cost" showing the cheapest option at the top. You can see that the cheapest option is actually our #6 pick due to lengthy delivery time, unexceptional rating and basic tracking service.

You may want Easyship to automatically choose a specific courier instead of the best value. Or maybe you would like the default option to be the cheapest or fastest courier. In that case, you can use our Shipping Rules feature.
