Overall Satisfaction with Pirate Ship

I use Pirate Ship for my small business' shipping solution. I am a single owner/operator, and it makes shipping a breeze! I can purchase & print postage for my packages quickly and easily, and even schedule pickups if necessary. The pricing is competitive, and the time saved from running back and forth to the post office makes this product a true necessity.
  • Great user interface--fun and modern, easy to navigate, pre-populated addresses, and never any "downtime"
  • Pricing is competitive--they even offer discounts for certain purchases, which is better than the post office!
  • Saves templates for efficiency--I send a lot of very similar packages, and it saves my preferences so I don't have to make selections every time.
  • I really can't think of any. It is truly wonderful software solution for small businesses!
  • Great time saver--less time wasted on trips back and forth to the post office
  • Money saving options/discounts
Pirate Ship has a much easier & simpler user interface. They also offer better options for small/low-volume businesses. I thought Stamps.com was a rip-off because of all the "extras" such as paper and scales you had to purchase from them to even get started. I am thrilled to have found an alternative such as Pirate Ship.
I have not had to use Pirate Ship's customer support because their product is wonderful and easy to use. I am sure based on the quality of their product that their customer service is also fantastic.

For a small/relatively low-volume business, Pirate Ship is perfect because you don't have to pay for a subscription, like with many other shipping solutions. They offer printing templates for both thermal and inkjet printers, which is nice because you don't have to buy additional hardware to make it work.

I don't know how well suited it would be for a larger-volume business.
