Thank you Shopify for sponsoring this post. Track your holiday shipments in one place with the new Arrive app!
A package once sat on my porch for 3 days before I realized it had been delivered. 3 days, y’all! I have orders and PR packages coming to my house frequently via the major carriers. I thought I was being proactive by setting up accounts with each carrier. But, it’s a chore to keep track of multiple accounts.
Enter Shopify Arrive (download the app here).
It’s a new mobile app that lets you track all of your online orders and shipments in one place, regardless of carrier and retailer. It’s peace of mind in the palm of your hands.
Juggling deliveries is usually stressful for me this time of year. I’m receiving time-sensitive materials for blog content. I’m also receiving orders I have to get to family in St. Kitts. What’s coming? What’s already been delivered? Finding answers to these questions would typically make me dizzy. Arrive takes all the stress away by making it so easy to keep track of all of that information.
Setting up Arrive App
Just so you know, the Arrive app is available for free for iPhone. Getting set up is a breeze too. Find the app here, install it, then sync (by simply entering an email address at log in) a gmail account to the app. The magic begins immediately. With your explicit permission only, the app instantly scans your email for orders and tracking information and automatically organizes the delivery information for you. There’s no need to be concerned about the app getting all up in your business either because it only uses information directly related to packages like tracking numbers and mail carrier information.
Don’t use just one email account to manage your orders? No worries. You can also manually enter delivery information into the app.
Favorite Features of Arrive
My favorite feature of the Arrive app (find out even more here) is that it gives me up-to-the-minute package tracking on my orders. I ordered a special holiday gift from a store in California, and I’ve been closely monitoring its journey to me because I have to be available to sign for it. I love being able to do that right from phone.
The ability to do this is so crucial because estimated delivery times can change, especially during the busy holiday season. For example, I expected a shipment of my go-to skincare products last Saturday, but the package surprisingly arrived early on Friday. I only knew to collect the package because Arrive (get it here) notified me that it had been delivered. You have the option to enable push notifications for delivery changes in the status of your deliveries.
Keeping track of ALL of my deliveries in ONE place makes life so easy. And, after a package is delivered? Arrive (download it for free here) continues to be useful because it keeps a delivery history too.
