How ShipStarion Makes Order Fulfillment & Shipping Easy for Shopify Merchants
Managing fulfillment and shipping for an eCommerce can be a nightmare if you’re offering multiple shipping carriers, rates, and shipping to different geographical regions. Ensuring that you have the proper labels for each carrier can be a headache just on its own. Luckily for you, solutions like ShipStation exist. You’ll no longer have to keep a vile of 400mg Advil at your desk! Let’s explore how ShipStation
helps Shopify merchants “get ship done”.
Access to Exclusive FedEx & USPS Shipping Rates
Whether you’re a small merchant just starting out with 100 orders a month, or an eCommerce selling machine with 10,000 orders, with ShipStation every merchant gets access to deeply discounted rates. For those on the FedEx Advantage Program, ShipStation users can save up to 29% on FedEx services. As a merchant you can pass these savings along to your customers. Discounts like these also make it economically appealing to offer free shipping as a promotional tool.

Simplify your Multi & Omni-Channel
ShipStation connects to more than just Shopify! If you’re selling on additional channels like Amazon, eBay, or Walmart Marketplace, then ShipStation can help you with fulfillment and shipping for those channels. Channels like Amazon have strict packaging and shipping regulations. Amazon requires specific labels and all packaging (including labels) must not contain any of your brand elements. ShipStation makes this process simple. In addition, all orders from your sales channels are visible in the ShipStation hub.
Unleash the Power of Automation
ShipStation has numerous automation features that allow you to eliminate manual data entry, reduce the risk of human error, and limit the number of repetitive tasks.
