ShipStation, announced this week it has launched its integrated relationship with Hermes, one of the UK’s premier carrier services.
UK-based ShipStation customers are now able to access discounted Hermes rates through the ShipStation Carrier Services program. Often these discounted rates might otherwise be out of reach for many small sellers due to minimum volume requirements.
ShipStation Carrier Services is a mechanism through which ShipStation customers are able to gain free access to carrier labels through a single online postage account within ShipStation.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide UK merchants with immediate access to great Hermes rates within ShipStation. Merchants will benefit from the ability to start printing labels without contracts, minimum commitments, and without delay.”
Robert Gilbreath, CMO and VP of Partnerships at ShipStation
Discounted Rates for Small Businesses
Through this integrated relationship, new businesses and online entrepreneurs will be on a level playing field with their established, larger counterparts with access to the same great tools and discounted rates.
Established merchants will be able to expand their delivery and fulfilment choices to fit their strategy and business needs.
ShipStation users can take advantage of attractive, pre-negotiated rates and create labels for ParcelShop Drop Off.
Pricing starts at £2.25 (excl. VAT, delivery to mainland UK) for small packages. Medium-sized parcels between 2 and 5 kg start as low as £4.59. Drop off is easy. With over 4,500 locations, open 7 days a week, 92% of UK merchants live within 2 miles of a ParcelShop.
In addition to the ShipStation Carrier Services program, ShipStation will continue to support customers with the seamless connection of existing Royal Mail, DHL, FedEx, and UPS accounts into the ShipStation platform.
