Who is ShipStation For?

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!

Great for keeping all your orders in one place.

Paul Booth, Project Manager/Superintendent at ELECTREX INDUSTRIAL SERVICES
After using PayPal shipping for years and bouncing back and forth between their prices for USPS, UPS and FedEx, I had enough. I need one place to get all my prices to compare and ShipStation has it.I print customer owned construction plans and their platform makes it easy to track my best sellers and revenue. www.theplanprinter.com

Pros: Great pricing, easy to use, all in one place for every online shipment, customer service there when you need them... I easily make up the $25 a month in time I save using ShipStation.

Cons: The price jump between Bronze and Silver is too much just to get the customization of packing slips and labels. Us small companies can't do 500 shipments a month but still like to look like we do to our customers. Maybe a $5 fee per month for Bronze to have the ability to customize.

Love Shipstation and how it streamlines my shipping needs

What's not to love? Combines the cost of stamps.com and it's service to give you this awesome fluid design that will in turn really take your ecommerce business to the next level.

Pros: so many to list, but mainly how it organizes and keeps track of shipments

Cons: should have more label size options

Brittany Burkhalter, Community Manager at ITALY FOREVER
ShipStation is so seamless and took my shipping time from 20 minutes to about 20 seconds! My business is online based so we are so dependant on shipping that is fast and accurate. I also love that all my tracking numbers are in one place and organised by date. So, so easy to use and should you ever had a question, their customer service is amazing. They respond immediately and can actually help me solve my issue. I would recommend ShipStation to anyone looking to simplify their shipping process!

Pros: Fast, dependable, easy, simple, quick, great software... I could go on!

Cons: occasionally orders take a few minutes to sync but if there is a issue, support fixes it in under a minute. So cool!

We are a small family business with two Internet based stores and we have found ShipStation to be superior with regard to price and the ease of use and simple integration. We have tried other programs but ShipStation allows us to download our stores' orders, create shipping labels and provide shipping notification all in one place in a matter of seconds. Shipping products has become a breeze. We are extremely pleased with ShipStation!

Shipsation has streamlined our shipping process

Brittany Whitenack, Founder/Candle Creator at Antique Candle Works
We have been so pleased with Shipstation! Our business has just a few employees, but the bulk of our orders are online that ships multiple packages a day. Shipstation has shaved off at least 5 minutes from each order, a huge time + money savings. Shipstation is also part of stamps.com so we get a small discount for USPS shipping!

Pros: User Friendly Affordable Price

Cons: Shipstation Connect can be somewhat difficult to get familiar with and connect correctly with DYMO printer

Laura M. Silverman, Consultant; Addiction Recovery and Mental Health Blogger/Advocate
I ultimately didn't end up using ShipStation because I synced my Shopify storefront with my Squarespace site (web and commerce hosting) as well as Printful, the printing/shipping tool for apparel, etc. Long story short, Daniel from ShipStation gives top notch customer support. He wasn't trying to push anything on me and only wanted me to be happy. If I ever have the need to use ShipStation in the future, I won't hesitate to give them my business.
