ShipStation Overview

As a multi-carrier, multi-channel shipping solution, ShipStation was designed to facilitate the shipping and fulfillment process for online retailers. Powering thousands of stores and processing millions of shipping labels per month, ShipStation is able to save merchants time and money by maximizing their shipping efficiencies. To accomplish this, ShipStation automatically retrieves and consolidates order information from over 40 sales channels, applies a preconfigured set shipping preferences to each order based on what you've specified, processes and prints customized shipping labels and packing slips—up to 500 in a single batch—automatically updates each store with shipping status and tracking information. When the label is created, we automate all customer communication, and provides consolidated reporting for immediate viewing. All of this happens automatically, seamlessly, and in real time. For those looking to outsource some or all of their shipping operations, including picking, packing, shipping and customer service, check out our integration with Fulfillment by Amazon!

ShipStation User Reviews

I am a ShipStation fan

Verified Reviewer  15th of April 20:52

Erika Kerekes, Owner at Not Ketchup
I use ShipStation to fulfill online orders for Not Ketchup, my line of all natural, paleo-friendly condiments. Before ShipStation I was entering every address manually at usps.com and I absolutely dreaded dealing with orders every day. ShipStation saves me so much time that I have been able to continue to manage all my orders myself even as my business has grown exponentially. The reporting and tracking are great, too.

Very good

I was about to write code for some custom shipping integration for my cart when someone suggested shipstation to me. It's the kind of software you wish that all software was like. It's got an excellent user interface, and it does all the things you need it to do. It takes the place of manually managing orders in your cart software and does it 10 times better than the cart ever could.

Can't live without it!

A well deserved 5 Stars for ShipStation!

topdrawer Enterprises, --
We have tried other systems and have found ShipsStation to be superior with regard to not only price but ease of use and ability to perform. Topdrawerenterprises and JackValesPooter.com have become used to the ease of use and simple integration that we experience with ShipsStation if there is something we have a concern or question about, their support depth is always able to quickly help. We also enjoy ShipStations support forum and have experienced a fantastic twitter community as well. We are a small company with three internet marketing businesses. We use an ecommerce platform for our stores and also run two ebay stores, Amazon and our own website and ShipStation simply integrates all of them seemlessly with our sites. We have looked for a program which would make downloading our store orders and setting them up with shipping lables and automatic feedback and shipping notification as simple as possible and would not cost a lot of money, time or resources. Problem solved with shipstation.

Shipstation is a life saver

Sam Elsaadi, President of samsteasandspices.com
I have been using shipstation for over a year now, and I can't believe the amount of work we did before signing up for shipstation. We use multiple channels and shipstation has been so easy, straight forward and simple to use, it cut the processing time by at least half. Their customer service is outstanding, friendly, fast and helpful staff. I highly recommend using ShipStation.

Shipstation is not kidding....they are shipping Nirvana!

Pamela Thompson, Creative Director Tiny Frock Shop - Freelance Fashion Designer Lammily, GhoDho, Mott50
I have been a Shipstation user for over 2 years and they never let me down. They make my business run smoother with integrated sales and shipping on all my sales channels. It is only me here at the Tinyfrockshop selling Vogue worthy Barbie clothes and accessories, so having a partner like Shipstation helps to not only keep my business organized but also helps to speed up the pick process, shipping process and tracking. It is worth it's weight in gold.

ShipStation is a Life Saver

Order Queen
We Love ShipStation!! I cannot begin to tell you how much time ShipStation has saved us. It is very user friendly. Online tech support chat is fantastic! Before ShipStation it took us about 8 hours to get our orders through to printing labels. It now takes us about 15 minutes. For those of you in business that is saving the salary for almost one full-time person.

Fantastic!

ShipStation has been revolutionary for our Shopify store! Before using it, our startup business had to print each label manually from the carrier's website. Now we print batches of labels and packing slips quickly and efficiently, which drastically streamlines our fulfillment process and allows us more time - and money - to focus on growing our fledgling business! We couldn't be happier with ShipStation! Check us out at www.healthychimp.com!

ShipStation Has Streamlined My Whole Buisness

O'Connell Gallery & Gifts
One word: Efficient! ShipStation has streamlined my whole business. The latest feature that integrates Google Cloud Print is amazing! I can be at home, print labels at night, have them print on the work printer at work, and the employees will take care of it the next morning. It's truly fantastic. Other great features worth noting: Assign orders to certain groups, Automatic notification of marketplaces (ShipStation will actually automatically send the tracking number and mark the order as 'shipped' to different marketplaces such as eBay, Shopify, Amazon, etc..), and the speed and great carrier prices are all benefits to this app.
