  • 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.

  • If you run an online business and you’ve been frustrated by how long it takes to process orders and ship out your products, chances are that ShipStation is just what you need. Its ability to automate so much of your shipping process and its incredible number of integrations with carriers and sales channels will end up saving you a huge amount of time. It’s easy to use but powerful. This is serious software that gets the job done efficiently and without fuss. Plus, it’s pretty affordable for the number of shipments and stores you get, and the customer support appears to be top-notch.

  • After countless hours of research (and exploring the competition) our team determined that the web-based shipping solution that offers the best interface, the highest amount of functionality and the best balance of ease of use with power is shipstation, also it provides exceptional functionality and a wide range of features and integrate with tons of providers such as BigCommerce, Amazon, Shopify, Magento, PrestaShop, Squarespace and more.

    ShipStation is well established in the USA and new to the UK. It's worth saying at the start of this review that I'd approached them to see if they could support my retail business based in Derbyshire, England. ShipStation by coincidence were finalizing an integration with Royal Mail and invited me to BetaTest with them. My business is young and growing quickly, so this was ideal for us. The test is now complete, and I believe other UK shippers are now being added starting with UPS.

    ShipStation connects to our Bigcommerce store platform and to our Royal Mail account. Like other shipping tools, we're able to produce professional addressed paid labels for our packages with a whole suite of domestic and international services. Cloud-based, ShipStation runs seamlessly with few problems and has enabled us to ship much faster and more accurately. The connection to Royal Mail enables us to pay on account at the best levels of discount, so ShipStation actually pays for itself month in and month out. In this interconnected world, we face one or two issues with data transfer which are technical and relate to the variety of channels we trade on connected to our platform and channel manager, but I'm confident these will be overcome given time.

    The service quality is friendly and supportive. ShipStation has many features such as batching and barcode scanning which will suit much bigger businesses than ours.

    Pros :

    • As a small business growing fast, we could not have coped without a shipping application. ShipStation is ideal if you want something that ships but doesn't try and take over other aspects of your store eco-system as well. My business has found that ShipStation has helped us to:
      • Ship much faster and therefore more efficiently - labels are easy to produce, there's minimal data input. The app also combines customer orders where the customer has placed 2 separate orders within the same batch.
      • andnbsp; andnbsp; Ship more accurately - the screen shows full product detail including a visual which given our big inventory is very useful. It also flags up where the order qty is more than one unit - simple but effective.
      • Ship more professionally - we now produce 6x4" Royal Mail labels fast. ShipStation updates instantly our Bigcommerce store and consequently marketplaces like eBay and Amazon of the order status. This is also a great efficiency as well as more professional.
    • ShipStation can produce packing slips if you need them and has multiple advanced features which we've not scratched the surface of yet but which will help our efficiency and service quality. These include batch picking, multiple order pickers, multiple carriers, return labels and so forth.
    • Through the connection with our carrier, (Royal Mail) we're able to access the benefits of account billing and the best discount levels. ShipStation is very affordable and in fact paid for entirely by the discounts it enables.

    Cons :

    • Not many downsides, but we have one glitch which is not yet resolved. This concerns product weight imports from Amazon and ebay, which do not auto-populate into our ShipStation order screen. This is a minor issue but does mean that for such orders we have to input the weight. However this may only be a downside for my business because of the particular channel manager we use, so essentially, in this connected world not every possible combination of connections is working just as I'd like. The upside is that ShipStation is on the case so hopefully this will be resolved.
    • I'd also like ShipStation to interpret the shipping service level for channel orders, (whereas for own store orders this is auto-populated). This is a limitation which I've not investigated yet but which like for product weights should be fixable.
