Evernote is one of the most beautifully and curated brands out there.

New integration: Ubercart & Drupal Commerce

We are proud to announce that we now have Ubercart and Drupal Commerce fulfillment integrations that work with the Drupal 7 content management framework. These are the first modules available on Drupal.org to provide merchants with fully automated order fulfillment, real time quotes, and shipment tracking. They allow Ubercart and Drupal Commerce merchants to offload product storage and shipping, reduce shipping time and costs, and open up international markets through a network of global warehouses. The modules were built by Shipwire partner, Coda, making full use of Shipwire’s order fulfillment APIs. This means stores on Drupal 7 can provide real-time shipping rates in their cart, automate their order fulfillment, get tracking information, keep inventory levels in sync, and more. The modules make use of Rules events in Drupal, which allow for significant customization of the order fulfillment process. For more information, see the...

New FedEx & UPS Dimensional Weight Changes

Dimensional weight – the method that accounts for package volume rather than weight alone – may soon become the new normal. That’s because in May, FedEx announced dim weight rules would apply to all shipments beginning in 2015, and yesterday, UPS followed suit with a similar announcement.

Some estimates say the change could bring the company an additional $350 million in annual sales, pulled straight from the pockets of merchants and individuals....
