Product Details

What is ShipperHQ?

ShipperHQ is a shipping experience management platform from WebShopApps, the leading provider of shipping extensions for Magento. It gives eCommerce merchants the ability to set their own delivery options and shipping rates. ShipperHQ is designed to optimize the customer experience from checkout through the post-purchase phase. Shipping-based pricing, promotions, and flexible delivery options make ShipperHQ a popular choice for eCommerce businesses. ShipperHQ is currently supported by seven well-known eCommerce platforms. Their mission is to develop shipping management tools that make things easier for eCommerce merchants. Tens of thousands of merchants worldwide currently use the ShipperHQ platform to deliver the best shipping options for their customers. ShipperHQ partners with a few post-purchase shipping solutions, such as ShipStation, Ship Easy, and Order Cup.

ShipperHQ Benefits

eCommerce businesses that use ShipperHQ appreciate the Dimensional Shipping tool, which calculates accurate rates based on box sizes, packaging requirements, and product weight. They also highlight the convenience of using ShipperHQ’s rate calculation engine to implement their own shipping rules. These rules consider important factors like product type, geography, cart quantity, and price. Another notable feature of ShipperHQ is the backup carrier rates, which automatically provide coverage during unanticipated downtime. Customers will still be able to see the backup carrier rates when downtime, such as maintenance or an unscheduled outage, occurs with a live rate carrier.

ShipperHQ also ensures that eCommerce buyers have accurate transit times and can choose their preferred delivery date. Merchants can offer in-store pickup or multi-origin shipping, which is especially useful for dropshipping businesses. ShipperHQ even provides in-home furniture delivery through an integration with uShip. New and existing uShip customers are eligible to receive a completely free offer that includes the Essential plan. Businesses that frequently ship large products or orders should be aware of LTL Freight carriers, which are available at every subscription level. ShipperHQ provides its users with an impressive number of supported LTL Freight carriers and third party Logistics Providers.

Additional Services

All of the ShipperHQ plans include custom rate carriers, live rate carriers, and customizable shipping rules. The price of ShipperHQ largely depends on the number of carriers and monthly shipping requests. ShipperHQ offers add-on services for account configuration and technical support. The consultations with ShipperHQ experts are beneficial for eCommerce businesses with complex shipping requirements. ShipperHQ experts also provide one-on-one technical support at an hourly rate. Businesses with complex shipping needs should also consider purchasing the Enterprise plan, which includes priority-level support, training, and configuration.

ShipperHQ has proven to be a valuable tool for users during the software setup and implementation phase. Users appreciate the support and assistance they receive from ShipperHQ's customer service team. They have successfully offset freight costs by incorporating a flat fee for deliveries to specific states, which has positively impacted their profitability. Additionally, ShipperHQ effectively handles fuel surcharges for items affected by fluctuating fuel prices, enabling businesses to manage shipping costs more efficiently.

Users who ship farm equipment parts, irregular sizes, and heavy items find that ShipperHQ accurately calculates shipping costs, distinguishing it from other shipping apps they have tried in the past. It seamlessly integrates with the BigCommerce platform, serving as a reliable live transportation rate calculator for customers. However, it should be noted that ShipperHQ lacks labeling and shipment management features, requiring users to rely on third-party shipping applications.

Customers have had an overall positive experience with ShipperHQ and enthusiastically recommend it. They praise its contribution to a smooth checkout and shipping process, particularly when faced with various shipping challenges. Users have been satisfied with ShipperHQ and its predecessor WebShopApp applications over several years of use. The exceptional support provided by the ShipperHQ team promptly resolves any shipping issues or concerns that may arise.

Versatile and Efficient Solution: Users have found ShipperHQ to be a versatile and efficient shipping solution. Many reviewers appreciated the ability to create shipping groups and offer free shipping on smaller items while charging shipping and handling fees for larger items/orders. Some users also mentioned that ShipperHQ allows them to streamline shipping of similar-sized boxes or use free shipping through shipping groups.

Accurate Real-Time Shipping Rates: ShipperHQ was praised by users for its accurate real-time shipping rates provided through a variety of different carriers. Several reviewers highlighted the value of this feature, as it helps them provide customers with reliable and up-to-date information about their shipping costs.

Seamless Integration with Platforms: The seamless integration of ShipperHQ with platforms like BigCommerce and Magento was commended by users. They appreciated how easily they could set up the software and customize various settings to accommodate the look of shipping rates on their site.

Confusing setup for customizable shipping rates: Some users have found the rules setup for customizable shipping rates to be confusing, making it difficult for them to accurately set up their desired rates.

Disorganized and time-consuming onboarding process: Several reviewers have mentioned that the onboarding process of Shipper HQ is disorganized and time-consuming, leading to frustration and delays in getting started with the platform.

Inaccurate view of packaging as square volume: Users have reported that Shipper HQ does not accurately view packaging as square volume, which causes issues when trying to predict rates for round bottles. This discrepancy in how packaging is measured can lead to unexpected difficulties in calculating shipping costs.

ShipperHQ is being used in our organization to solve the problem of providing accurate shipping rates across all our dynamic products. Since our products are large but not very heavy, it's nice to be able to set up custom carrier rules to make sure our customers are getting the best rate, while also keeping our shipping profitable. They also have a fantastic team to help set up the application itself and help the customer understand how to set up all the custom box sizes, etc.
  • Accurate real-time shipping rates through a number of different carriers.
  • Custom dimensional rules for one-off, and odd product packaging sizes.
  • Shipping groups to help streamline the shipping of similar sized boxes or use of free shipping, etc.
  • Some of the features are a little hard to understand how to set up properly - like dimensional rules.
  • Would be nice if they provided the ability to print labels directly from within the app.
ShipperHQ is almost too heavy-handed for our use case. We are only a single-origin shipper so we don't need the advanced functionality of multi-origin or drop-shipping. It is suited much better for organizations that have multiple origins or that use drop-ship facilities, or even a company managing multiple different eCommerce websites. We opted to go with it because of its great reviews, combined with less than stellar reviews of the competition.

  • We've managed to successfully provide accurate real-time shipping rates through FedEx while remaining profitable.
We only used BigCommerce's native real-time quote generator before this and it was only for international rates. ShipperHQ was able to help us get quickly set up with real-time rates for all FedEx services. I haven't looked into any alternatives.
I am the only one using ShipperHQ, I manage our eCommerce website and all related software and services.
One should have a rudimentary understanding of shipping best practices and a firm grasp on business logic.
  • Accurate real-time shipping rates.
  • Custom box sizes.
  • Dimensional Rules.
  • Our utilization of ShipperHQ is pretty standard without anything unexpected.
  • We plan on setting up USPS as an option.
  • Hiding FedEx as an option if a package is being shipped to a PO box.
I give ShipperHQ a 10/10 because the software does exactly what it says, and has a rock-solid support team to help get everything set up. The features are pretty easy to use and implement.
Their support is the primary reason I elected to purchase a premium. They helped a lot with the initial set up.
When I first installed the app I wasn't able to understand how to apply the dimensional rules to custom box sizes. After a short 15-minute call with their support team, I was quickly able to see in BigCommerce where the shipping logs were and see what boxes each product was shipped in.
  • Setting up our website
  • Installing FedEx carrier through the API
  • Setting up custom box sizes
  • Dimensional Rules
  • Carrier Rules
I'm not giving a 10/10 because I did need a little hand-holding to get through the initial setup. Overall, it's not that difficult to use once you understand how to apply custom dimensional rules.

We sell our goods online and shipper HQ works with Big Commerce to make it easy to do so.
  • It is easy to batch process orders.
  • It quickly calculates rates to compare.
  • It is easy to keep track of orders for future review.
  • It doesn't always send emails on manually entered orders.
  • It would be nice to be able to see each order as you click on it when processing batch labels to be sure you have the right ones.
  • It should automatically update when new orders come into Big Commerce.
Shipper HQ works well with our business. We have many sizes and options of products that require different boxes and shipping methods and this platform works for our needs. Shipper HQ is pretty accurate with its estimations of cost to the customer. It is easy to learn and easy to train someone to use.

  • shipping is more streamlined
  • administration is easier
  • employees can use easily
USPS only allows you to use their services (obviously). It was sluggish and often offline. The shipsaver insurance saves us money. We had to guess shipping costs for items instead of entering their weights and sizes ahead of time. It integrates with our e-commerce site. Glad we have it now.

We use ShipperHQ to provide live shipping rates on our BigCommerce retail platform. This allows us to provide expedited shipping options to customers who opt not to use our flat rate ground method. It also allows us to set up different shipping options for our Canadian customers, which is a huge help.
  • ShipperHQ makes providing live shipping rates fairly easy.
  • It also integrates pretty seamlessly into our BigCommerce platform.
  • It requires little to no maintenance. There are other third-party apps that we've used that require constant supervision, but ShippHQ is a set it and forget type app.
  • The user interface is a little tricky. It is not as easy to navigate as other shipping apps.
  • I wish that ShipperHQ had the functionality to print shipping labels and manage shipments. We currently have to use a different third-party app for shipment management.
  • I would also like to see the option for adding shipping rules if shipping management was integrated.
We like ShipperHQ for what it is which is-- more or less a live shipping rate calculator. It works well in our BigCommerce platform. But unfortunately, it lacks the shipping management ability to print labels and manage shipments and orders. This makes us have to use a third-party shipping app. This isn't the end of the world, but it would be much easier if we could just do it all from one place.
  • ShipperHQ is reliable and requires little to no maintenance, which for a small crew like ours is invaluable.
  • ShipperHQ also offers the option to display either retail shipping rates or our discounted rates to our customers. This is handy because we can display those discounted rates, which results in higher conversion and fewer abandoned carts due to high shipping costs.
  • One negative, however, is that since ShipperHQ lacks the ability to manage shipments, we have had to use another third party app which increases overhead.
Honestly, we have not had to use any alternative software to provide live shipping rates, so I do not have any experience with other products to compare it to. ShipperHQ was included with our BigCommerce Enterprise package, and we have been using them ever since without issue. As stated before, the only thing ShipperHQ really lacks is a good shipping platform to actually manage shipments.
