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!

Good, And Getting Better

Verified Reviewer  26th of April

Stuart Logan, Warehouse Manager at Auto Security Products, Inc.
I investigated ShipStation as part of a multi-application alternative to my company's failing 30-year-old in-house UNIX system, and although we haven't yet completely switched our infrastructure over, we are already entirely switched to ShipStation as far as our shipping goes. The service doesn't quite do everything we want, but the few features we'd like - such as doc tabs on labels - are something they say they're working on, and looking over the past, they seem very good about answering customer feature requests. Overall, I would highly recommend ShipStation over other proprietary shipping software solutions, like UPS WorldShip.

Pros: + Easy to use. + Openly accessible API. + Frequently pre-integrated with other cloud-based software.

Cons: - A few interface oddities.

Krista Davis, I am a versatile sales person with a friendly and professional demeanor.
This service has become the backbone to my business. I love that all of my selling platforms can all be used on the same site. Money well spent! My IT developer suggested it and I am so glad I listened!

Pros: All selling platforms are listed in one easy to use place.

Cons: A little difficult to navigate at first but you can catch on quickly.

Sterling Jones, Founder of JOJO'S
Ship Station has been a huge benefit to our company. We process orders from different market places and now it brings them all into one platform, simple to use, great pricing, and is needed by anyone who is shipping products!

Pros: simple, great price, gets you great prices for postage

This has made my life a lot easier.

I have an online business and found my self spending way too much time shipping. There was no way to compare pricing between different carriers, and I had to cut and paste shipping information into whichever carrier I used. SS has simplified this process by having everything all in one place. I love this app. Wish I had known about it a long time ago!

A real time saver.

Adam Dras, Shop Owner at Big Boy Vintage
ShipStation allows me to streamline the shipping label printing procedures while selling across multiple eCommerce platforms that include eBay, Etsy and Amazon. Being able to prepare the shipping labels for all the platforms in one place is a real time saver. Application interface is very intuitive and easy to use. I use ShipStation from Canada it integrates very well with Canada Post shipping services. I also like the weekly email reports that include revenue and shipping cost numbers.

Pros: One platform to prepare all shipping labels from multiple selling channels. Saves time. Makes shipping and printing labels easy. Mobile app.

Cons: Does not include Canada Post Light Packet as a shipping option.

I just started using ShipStation on Monday this week. Its Wednesday and I honestly feel pretty comfortable with it already. It is very user friendly.

Pros: Very easy to use and set up.

ShipStation A+

Marc Pendergraft, Entrepreneur
I have been using ShipStation for a few months now. I use both FedEx and USPS to ship my 20-30 packages a day. Shipstation has made it quick and easy to get my orders out the door. What I find the best is the customer support and speedy response with any questions I may have.

Pros: - Customer Support - They are always working on great upgrades and new features to help us out - The automation rules! - Seminars, its a great way to learn and ask live questions!

Cons: - I would love more seminars! - Interface may be hard to learn something new at first, but once you got it down its a breeze

Makes Shipping Really Easy

Verified Reviewer  11th of April

Travis Hancock, Founder at Forge52
Lets me print out labels with a few clicks. Pulls in shipping info directly from my e-commerce board game store, www.facadegames.com. Also nice getting quotes from FedEx, UPS, USPS at the same time with their quote calculator and linking all the accounts. Definitely recommend for people shipping out products!

Pros: Easy, fast, includes stamps.com membership

Cons: Confusing at first getting everything set up

Pros: Easy install, quick printing of shipping labels
