AfterShip was found in 2011 Nov, while I met Andrew and Dante (another co-founders) in the HK Startup Weekend HK.
At that time AfterShip was only an idea, an idea that to help all online merchants to track, monitor their shipments, and notify their customers.
We hope to solve the merchant's customer service pain, make their customer happy and increase their customer loyalty.

AfterShip automatically detect the courier of each shipment based on its tracking number format. While AfterShip supports over 70 couriers, the same tracking number format may clash with multiple couriers. In this case, you will want to tell AfterShip which courier you're actually using, i.e. set a courier priority for your AfterShip account.

The question comes into my mind when we ask ourselves how important should an online store allow customers to track within the site. How frequent do people track a shipment? UPS suggests 2.42 times per shipment based on their 2012 fact sheet.
Let's do some simple Maths. Assume your online store:
If your store provides an easy way for customer to track a shipment within your website, you can turn tracking shipment into an opportunity to make customers return for cross-selling. i.e. 12,1000 extra visits per month.
AfterShip API helps online store to show delivery status within store, customers do not even need to input a tracking number! Alternatively, we also launched a FREE tracking widget for online shop with basic technical support.

Do you know that some carriers require users to input both tracking number and area code (or postalcode) for tracking a shipment? We believe this is to avoid duplicate records in their tracking system and also strengthen the privacy protection of the tracking number. When you track such shipment in AfterShip, you can enter the tracking number followed by ":" and area code (XXXXXXXXXXXXX:YYYY). Read more for more examples.
