ShipStation: a Seamlessly Integrated Cloud-based Shipping Service

Toiling in order to attract customers and make sales is already difficult and time consuming enough, yet the effort needed to process and ship those very orders can be just as arduous. But not any more.

ShipStation is a cloud-based software designed to help online merchants process, fulfil, and ship their orders from all the most popular online marketplaces and shopping carts via world renowned carriers.

Founded in 2011, ShipStation has since flourished into one of the most popular, flexible and feature-filled shipping softwares on the market.

Signed, Sealed & Delivered from the Cloud

One of the beauties of ShipStation lies in its accessibility. The software is completely cloud-based, meaning that there is nothing to download or install, and yet you can access it on any device, from anywhere in the world, and at any time.

ShipStation itself enables you to import, sort, and process your orders just the way you want them.

The software combines order processing, production of shipping labels, and customer communication in an easy to use, web-based interface that integrates directly with major carriers and selling platforms.

Shipping rules can be specifically defined, labels can be printed in bulk, returns can be professionally managed, branding can be applied and much more. It's everything you need to successfully fulfil orders, all in one place.

Yet, the conveniences of using ShipStation don't end there.

Seamless Integration with Popular Marketplaces & Carriers

No matter how or where you sell your products, or with which carrier you like to deliver them, ShipStation can almost always seamlessly integrate.

Marketplaces like eBay, Amazon, Shopify, Bigcommerce, Volusion, Etsy, PrestaShop, Squarespace and many more are all a piece of cake for ShipStation to join forces with.

This integration includes automatic order retrieval, automatic customer notification regarding order status and tracking, customized email confirmations, branded shipping slips and so forth.

And if that wasn't enough of a comfort, ShipStation also integrates just as easily when it comes to popular carriers, including FedEx, UPS, DHL and USPS.

It's as easy as selecting your orders, choosing and then automating your shipping options and then printing your shipping labels all in one fell swoop. There's also no need to separate orders by carrier, weight or destination. ShipStation simply handles it all with no complications.

Multi-channel Unification

ShipStation isn't just compatible with different online marketplaces – it's compatible with all of them at once.

For merchants who sell through multiple channels, like Amazon and eBay for example, this means that ShipStation can process all orders seamlessly, even though they come from different selling platforms.

This is also true for when you use multiple carriers. ShipStation once again streamlines the process, allowing you to manage multiple carrier shipments using just one interface, without having to constantly log in and out of individual carrier accounts.

So, the chore of attending to each platform and carrier to gather up and fulfil orders is long gone – all thanks to ShipStation's all-in-one solution.
