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!

We used Shipstation for the first time when doing fulfillment for a Kickstarter campaign. We had never sent out such a huge volume of packages before (over 900), and Shipstation made it super easy to do. Highly recommend getting the Dymo 4XL printer to go with this - saved a huge amount of time.

Best Shipping software!

John Fuqua, Self Employed at endorfinders.com
I've used several shipping setups before but nothing compares to the ease of shipstation, their extensive list of plugins allow me to link multiple accounts all to one place. The amount of work that went into the development of shipstation is absolutely extraordinary, I would be lost without it.

Pros: Plug in intergration, customer support, cataloging, sales reports, and ease of use.

Cons: I cannot think of any con to using shipstation.

Using ShipStation saves me tons of time. Whether it is shipping products, printing custom packing slips, or creating returns, ShipStation is my one stop shop. It's the only website that is always open.

Pros: It's easy to use and has a lot of options.

Melissa Calvert, Owner at My Littlest 1
I love using shipstation because it's integrated with other software and so easy to use! Everything uploads right into the system and links between programs.

Pros: Streamlined work flow.

Cons: Can be very slow at times.

Great solution to shipping from multiple commerce platforms

Jake Challand, President of Firearms Radio Network
I use ShipStation to ship our Amazon and Squarespace sales. Integrates with both platforms very well. The only con would be the unreliable international shipment creation. I still retain my Endicia account to create international shipments because it works far better and actual verifies addresses worldwide.

Pros: Integrates with Amazon and Squarespace very well

Cons: Unreliable international shipment creation Won't verify international addresses

Easy and Fast Way to Ship

Kristina Czarnik, Program Development & Project Coordinator at Standard Textile
We love Ship Station for our online business! Ship Station drastically speeds up the shipping process by having all customer information and package weights pulled from our website. It also shows the length of time an order has been open, which is great to make sure all orders are going out on time!

Pros: Easy to use, all information pulled from website.

Cons: We have no complaints.

Sarah E. (Welander) Schroeder, owner at Minnesota Made LLC
I use Squarespace with the support of Shipstation because I ship out clothing. It works well, but I will say it was hard to get it going in the beginning.

Pros: Shipments easily go from Squarespace to Shipstation.

Cons: It was difficult to get the hang of it.

All in all, this is a very good app

Verified Reviewer  10th of May

Carol Howe, Owner at Wild Herb Soap Co. LLC
I find it easy to use and does save us money overall. My post office loves that they only have to scan 1 sheet instead of scanning 40 to 60 packages a day! I do notice the system seems to be a little sluggish on Monday mornings, which is probably due to the influx of users. I'm definitely happy with the service.

Pros: Fairly easy to learn the system 1 scan sheet for the post office Saves us money each month on postage

Cons: Sluggish on Monday mornings, which are our busiest morning Fails to upload every single order from PayPal payments (forgets one here and there)

Easy efficient way of shipping products

Verified Reviewer  10th of May

Stella Han, Marketing Manager at EVCR
I love Shipstation because it integrates perfectly with my e-commerce web page as well as shipping carriers, and creates a seamless experience. The orders automatically get synced with shipstation as well as my inventory management software, so I just log in, pick and pack, and print the shipping label. EASY AS THAT! You can manually input certain things for your package, whether it's changing the shipping service, package size, weight, etc. It allows you to print your brand logo on the shipping stickers as well, that makes it easier for your customer to identify the package once it arrives!! I would definitely recommend this for user of all levels, as I am a beginner. Shipstation also as awesome customer service, they are willing to go to extra mile with you whether its over the phone or via email to help solve any issues you have.
