How Does Easyship Work

Shipping is the ultimate barrier for eCommerce retailers' success and we understand that it's not easy for any business operating in the online retail space.

At Easyship, our primary goal is to simplify and automate this process with our all-in-one shipping platform. We do this by enabling our users to sync orders from their online store, and effortlessly manage shipments via an easy-to-use interface. We will help you cut shipping costs and allow you to utilize our partners' ecosystem to better serve your customers.

What we'll cover:

Store integrations

In an ever-changing technological environment, it is important to use a platform that directly supports dozens of store integrations. From marketplaces like eBay to e-commerce platforms such as Shopify, Easyship allows merchants to sync orders, transfer tracking numbers and fulfillment statuses, and provide dynamic rates at checkout all with a few clicks of a button.

Supported Store Integrations

Pre-negotiated courier rates

Shipping at a low cost requires high volume courier accounts, and without access to commercial rates, it is difficult to compete with established competitors. Easyship provides over 250 courier services that anybody with an account can use free of charge. Our website provides pre-negotiated rates from the below countries:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hong Kong
  • Netherlands
  • Singapore
  • Spain
  • The United States of America
  • United Kingdom

We automatically generate commercial invoices, customized packing slips, and even send tracking emails to your customers. 

Rates at checkout

Why stop at the merchant? Easyship allows users to display a wide range of courier options to their customers at checkout which provides a variety of solutions to choose from, further increasing conversions. Our algorithm determines the cheapest, fastest, and best value shipping options by calculating the rates based on the products in the customer's cart. Rates at checkout are available for the following stores:

  • Shopify 
  • WooCommerce
  • Magento
  • BigCommerce
  • Open API

All-in-one customer support system

When dealing with multiple couriers and shipping companies, reaching out to different emails and phone numbers for a simple status update can be time-consuming and frustrating. On Easyship, all courier inquiries are managed by the Easyship customer support team. Meaning anything from a status update for a shipment to tech troubleshooting store integration is only one email, chat, or phone call away. 

Why stop at the shipper? Easyship sends tracking emails to your customers with an all-in-one tracking page regardless of the courier you are using.
