Shopify Partners with USPS on Shipping Service

Shopify, Shopify Shipping, U.S. Postal Service, USPS, Amazon Webstore, ecommerce platform, ecommerce marketplaceCloud-based multichannel commerce platform Shopify has launched Shopify Shipping, allowing merchants to buy and print discounted shipping labels within the Shopify platform. The integration with the U.S. Postal Service will make the service available to Shopify’s 175,000+ merchant customers.

This news comes shortly after Shopify took over business from the shuttered Amazon Webstore. The service is made available via an integration with Endicia.

“Shipping is a fundamental component of any online merchant’s workflow,” said Louis Kearns, Director of Product and Merchant Solutions at Shopify in a release. “We’re focused on streamlining shipping and product delivery for our merchants, so they can focus on other aspects of growing their business. With Shopify Shipping, not only are we saving merchants time and money, but we’re also giving them the foundation they need to perfect their fulfillment strategy.

Kearns said Shopify plans to eventually expand these benefits to other geographies with additional shipping providers.

Merchants using Shopify Shipping can buy shipping labels through USPS, using preferred rates that are up to 60% off retail.

In addition to saving money when purchasing shipping labels, merchants can either drop prepaid shipments off at USPS offices without having to wait in line, or schedule a free home pickup.
