About Route ‑ Protection & Tracking

All About Route

Route offers a connected suite of post-purchase solutions for online retailers. With Route, Shopify merchants can optimize their post-purchase experience, increase customer lifetime value, and differentiate their brand by offering customers:

  • Package tracking built for the needs of modern consumers.
  • Order protection against loss, theft, or damage.
  • Genuine customer engagement from purchase to delivery.

With these solutions, Route transforms the post-purchase journey from an undervalued afterthought into a loyalty-generating customer experience.

Benefits of Route

Don’t leave the last mile of your customer experience to chance in the hands of third-party carriers. By adding Route’s post-purchase solutions to the customer experience, online merchants:

  • Take control of the brand experience from checkout to delivery.
  • Increase conversion, loyalty, and customer retention.
  • Reduce support costs, claims resolution time, and frustration.
  • Give customers confidence and peace of mind at checkout.
  • Get valuable insights into claims filed by customers.

How Package Tracking Works

When Route is installed, Track is implemented automatically for free. Your store will instantly have the ability to bring package tracking to life with immersive web and mobile experiences for customers who use the Route app, even if they didn’t purchase protection.

With Track, merchants can customize their unique brand profile and add branded content to shipping notifications (coming soon!). It’s a direct path to increase customer engagement, meet modern expectations, and keep shoppers informed as their purchases go from warehouse to doorstep.

How Package Protection Works

Once Route is installed on your store, customers will be able to add package protection against loss, theft, and damage right on the checkout page.

Protection is free for merchants and costs customers up to 2% of their cart total (with a minimum of $.98) when they opt in.

Should an issue arise, customers can quickly file claims through a link sent via email or directly in the Route app. Once a claim is submitted, Route jumps into action. Based on the merchant’s preference, Route will either refund the purchase or reorder the same products for the customers—ultimately creating a second sale for the merchant.

Customer claims are swiftly resolved while merchants save time and retain more revenue.

Very good, description of how route works and the collaborator request to install the app on my shop is a great help.

I have selected a 5 because I have not experienced any problems with Route! All my customers love it, and it gives a sense of assurance to my customers that their package will arrive safe and sound.

Because it works great. No hassles. Best shipping insurance. If you're not familiar with the process, it's fairly easy. I've never had a problem making a claim. To be honest, make the claim yourself on behalf of the customer. It's easier. Less hassle for your customer. I also add the insurance manually to orders that customers do not choose to add the insurance. I'll eat the cost knowing that I don't have to deal with the US Postal Service. It really does help you feel a little more secure when shipping expensive products.
