Welcome to the Business of eCommerce the show that helps e-commerce retailers start launch and grow their e-commerce business. I'm Charles and I'm here today with Michael Sene. Michael is the director of sales at deliver where they help retailers get faster next day or two day shipping on all their products. I think they're doing something new here, and it's pretty interesting to see how, as a independent retailer, you can actually get next day, two day shipping to try to really compete with the big guys like an Amazon or a Walmart. And this is something that's becoming more and more important in the game of retail. Now folks are expecting it and it's something that people are just becoming very used to. So they've really changed the model they're using technology to do this. I think it's kind of interesting chat to kind of go into how they're doing this and to put some thought into where as a retailer, you want to be now, and in the future, when maybe the expectation goes from two days to one day or one hour, wherever it is. And he kind of talks about that and kind of get you in that mind space of thinking, what do I want to be now and in the future. So it's going to show, so, Hey, Michael, how are you doing today? I'm
Doing great. I'm doing great. Thanks for having me.
Yeah. Awesome. I have you on, I think this topic is very timely on fast shipping. This is, this is the era of the whole shipping pocalypse where we've seen a lot of people struggle with this. So it's good to kind of talk through this.
