FAQ AND FURTHER INFORMATION

WHO IS BANBUTSU?

banbutsu runs a software platform to connect partners across various industries. We are a B2B service and enable exciting customer experiences and new business synergies. In this solution, we partner with Shopify and local delivery firms to make fast, local and sustainable deliveries available to you and your customers.

WHY IS SAME-DAY RELEVANT FOR MY BUSINESS?

Fast and sustainable delivery gained high relevance and consumer attention, not at least accelerated by the implications of COVID but also the rise of 10 minute grocery services like ‘Gorillas’. It has been proven that fast delivery services are not just a niche or convenience feature, but also a key purchase motivation. With banbutsu Courier you can now easily connect your existing Shopify store to such an infrastructure and keep pace with your future customer expectations.

WHAT ARE THE DELIVERY COSTS?

The delivery cost is calculated based on the pick-up and delivery location. We consider 3 zones: Zone A, B and AB. But the most important fact is: you only pay when you ship. There is no ongoing fee or shipping limit you have to reach.

ARE THE DELIVERIES INSURED?

Your goods are ensured by default up to 1000€. Your ship higher value goods? No problem.

CAN I CONFIGURE THE PICK-UP AND DELIVERY SCHEDULE?

Yes, it is possible to configure the pick-up and delivery schedule to your individual business needs. We are currently implementing this feature for the Admin-Panel, but until the launch you can reach out and we set it up in the backend.

WHAT IS DIRECT DELIVERY AND WHEN WILL IT BE AVAILABLE?

Direct orders will be shipped within 2 hours after the order was placed. The feature is currently in a testing stage and is expected to go live in September 2021.

WHICH SHOPIFY PLAN IS REQUIRED?

Using banbutsu Courier requires at least a Basic Shopify plan with an annual payment.

If your shop runs on a Basic Shopify plan with monthly payment or lower, you’ll need to upgrade in order to enable the Shopify carrier services which are necessary to receive dynamic shipping rates.

We are happy to support you in finding the right plan.

WILL THE INTEGRATION CAUSE ISSURES WITH MY EXISTING SHIPPING CARRIERS?

No, banbutsu will be displayed as an additional carrier service and only to customers in your local area. All other settings will remain unchanged. You discovered a problem?
