Web-based eCommerce shipping solution ShipStation has joined the Shopify Plus Certified App Program. The company’s inclusion in the program marks ShipStation’s high quality and service standards and provides merchants with a seamless integration to a powerful shipping and fulfillment solution.
The certification comes at a critical juncture where online merchants are experiencing high consumer demands for eCommerce experiences alongside a complex supply chain driven by COVID-19-related shipment delays.
ShipStation data showed a 33% increase in online shopping in 2020, but even with COVID-19-driven delays, 86% of surveyed consumers agreed that a poor shipping experience would negatively impact their perception of a brand.
Throughout the 10-year app partnership, thousands of Shopify Plus merchants have fulfilled millions of orders through ShipStation. These merchants include fast-scaling, innovative retailers like Billy Footwear, Cotopaxi, The Giving Keys, and Beardbrand.
With ShipStation, Shopify merchants can meet increasing consumer shipping demands while scaling their businesses. Shopify Plus gives large and growing merchants world-class scalability, reliability, and flexibility on a platform optimized for conversion.
