Integrated cloud based shipping resource
Yahoo! really likes what they see in the web based shipping solution company ShipStation. ShipStation announced today that it has become the first cloud-based shipping solution for Yahoo! Merchant Solutions. It’s a win win situation since ShipStation gives Yahoo! merchants a powerful, web-based resource for daily order fulfillment and ShipStation customers are afforded expandability into Yahoo! Services.
Yahoo! Merchant Solutions has provided a trusted solution; helping merchants build and run their businesses for over 14 years. This flexible, highly reliable and award winning platform has aided more ‘Internet Retailer Top 500’ merchants than any other hosted ecommerce provider for 7 years running and supported billions of dollars in transactions annually.
As part of the partnership, ShipStation can now offer their customers valuable integration with Yahoo! Merchant Solutions, online storefront, and management advisory services. All transactions and data generated through a Yahoo! Store will appear in the user’s ShipStation dashboard.
“ShipStation is pleased to be able to offer Yahoo! merchants a multi-carrier solution that not only supports FedEx, UPS, and discounted USPS shipping, but also offers a host of ancillary services that can lower costs and increase customer satisfaction,” said Jason Hodges, ShipStation co-founder. “ShipStation’s order management and analytics features provide batch shipping, customer email, returns management and so much more.”
A million shipping labels per month
ShipStation still maintains its independence and is servicing over 2,800 online retail stores, processing over one million shipping labels per month and continues to expand. The company offers five pricing plans to fit the needs of businesses from startups and home-based businesses to mid-sized and large enterprises. As a bonus, all five plans include free Endicia and Express1 accounts. Depending on the plan chosen, subscribers can enjoy additional features like branded shipping labels, user activity reports and integration with multiple sales channels.
The anchor of the ShipStation platform is a very comprehensive online dashboard. Customers are able to manage their daily shipping needs since the user interface supports consolidated views of orders from multiple stores, real-time shipping rate comparisons, discounts on Priority and Express mail, along with many other features and reports.
