Pirate Ship

Well suited for cubic shipping, especially if it’s only a few pounds. Not well suited for larger and heavy packages. USPS does not offer very competitive rates in comparison to UPS or FedEx, when it comes to heavy packages that are over 10x10x10. If you have a subscription box company, this would be the best way to purchase and print shipping labels.

ShippingEasy is perfect for a small business that needs the inventory system but doesn't want to pay through the nose. The customer service is excellent - they help you in set up, making changes, and make sure you understand how to use it. They save me time in managing our inventory and save me time when there is a problem - I call and get an answer right away. Plus if there is a system wide problem, which there rarely is, they make announcements and keep us up to date during and after

ShippingEasy

  • ShippingEasy makes it very easy to set up shipping rules for various scenarios so that shipping is fairly automated. It really is a click and ship type set up.
  • ShippingEasy integrates into our BigCommerce platform very well. We very rarely have any issues with ShippingEasy syncing orders and shipping status to BigCommerce and vise versa.
  • ShippingEasy's marketing service is very easy to use. It makes email campaign design extremely easy and aesthetically pleasing and it also makes automated emails very easy to set up as well.

I have reached out via phone, email, and chat, and they always help out immediately! Also, they even changed their credit card category to shipping for me so I could receive 3x points through one of my business credits when I purchase through them. They are truly the best ever!

ShippingEasy customer support is excellent. We rarely have to wait on hold, the reps are knowledgeable, well trained, well spoken, and understand technical issues. They listen carefully to make sure they understand the issue and check if they do not know something. I feel confident that I am getting correct information and rarely have to make more than one phone call to get an issue corrected.

Alternatives Considered

Pirate Ship

Pirate Ship is the best for USPS shipping labels, hands down.

ShippingEasy

We used to use the Quickbooks shipping option to ship all of our orders. This was clunky and time-consuming. Especially since Quickbooks is not exactly known for being lightning fast. We would also then have to manually transfer over shipment data into BigCommerce which was slow as well. But with ShippingEasy everything is practically automated so now we can have one person ship orders using one solution and it integrates into our entire system making everything a million times easier.
