Enhanced International Shipment Features
✔️ International Shipment Support
One of the main enhancements in this update is international shipment support. Now, users can easily ship their products globally via UPS, USPS, and FedEx. An essential part of this feature is the paperless customs declaration.
✔️Useful Customs Upgrades
Rollo Ship App users can now fill in all the required customs data directly through the platform user interface, including the customs declaration. The app integrates the essential aspects of declaration fulfillment into the user flow, helping customers pick suitable options during shipment creation. With automatic HTS (Harmonized Tariff Schedule) code search and automatic commercial invoice generation, users can save time and improve efficiency.
✔️Smoother Transfer of Documentation
In the previous versions, shippers had to manually generate and attach three copies of commercial invoices to the package, which is no longer necessary for UPS, FedEx, and USPS international shipments. Now, all documentation, including customs data, is created within the app and transferred electronically when supported. This new feature ensures packages clear customs faster and reduces the risk of being held up due to missing information.
Landed Cost Estimation and Commercial Invoices
✅ Landed Cost Estimation Feature
The Rollo App Update 1.18 introduces the landed cost estimation feature, which calculates customs duties based on the customs declaration data provided by the user. This provides the receiver of the goods with a clear indication of the amount they may need to pay to receive the items.
Rollo is now endeavoring to default all commercial invoice data electronically. The app checks the “submitted electronically” flag returned on a generated label. If this flag exists, the user doesn’t need to attach a physical copy of the commercial invoice.
Paperless Data Exchange & International Shipment Notice
✔️ Paperless Customs Invoices:
A key upgrade in the Rollo App update version 1.18 is the paperless data exchange feature, which is currently available for UPS and for Fedex in supported countries.
✔️ International Shipments: Rollo Ship App also issues an international shipment notice – an automatic reminder notifying customers about the carrier-specific requirements for documents (if any) that need to be attached to the package.
Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Address Support
✅ In its commitment to serving all customers, and in response to Rollo customers’ requests, Rollo has implemented APO (Army Post Office), FPO (Fleet Post Office), and DPO (Diplomatic Post Office) address support with USPS, ensuring that you can ship to personnel stationed around the world.
✅ This feature also incorporates an in-built customs declaration for these addresses, ensuring seamless and timely delivery of packages to military bases, often located overseas.
Enhanced Email Notifications & Payment Interface
✔️ Rollo has updated its email notifications to help businesses with fancy new styles.
✔️ Exact Payment: The payment interface has also been updated, allowing customers to pay the exact amount they need for their Rollo balance. Before the 1.18 Update customers were able to make an exact payment to their Rollo balance only with a pre-defined funds amount. Post this Rollo app update, users can now choose any custom amount they want to be funded, allowing users to save on fixed transaction fees. A balance to your account can also be added for future needs.
New USPS Service
✅ Now offering USPS Ground Advantage! Receive your package in 2-5 business days throughout the mainland U.S., complete with $100 insurance coverage.
⚠️ USPS has discontinued Select Ground and First-Class Package Services.
