Have you been experiencing slower than expected processing speeds with ShipStation? If so, we have some news that we’d like to share.
If you prefer or need to use Internet Explorer over any other browser, then we have found a way to help. To increase the overall speed and performance of ShipStation through your Internet Explorer browser versions 6, 7, 8 and 9, you can install a Google Chrome plug-in called the Google Chrome Frame. The plug-in can be downloaded from the following link. Just hit “Accept and Install”, and you’re on your way to a much faster ShipStation (note, you will need to restart Internet Explorer after installing the plug-in).
Note that the plug-in is only used for web sites that explicitly support the Google Chrome Frame, which ShipStation does, so it won’t affect any other sites that you regularly visit. For your convenience, we have included a video to help better explain how Google Chrome Frame works:
We hope that you have found this information helpful and that you are now experiencing ShipStation as it was intended – sleek, powerful, and FAST!

What inspired you to start creating your stickers?
I became inspired to create onesie stickers when I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in July 2010. I was going to school to be a nurse at that time and had clinical training in the Maternity Center. It was so beautiful and awe-inspiring to be involved in the birthing experience of so many families. When I was diagnosed, I had to quit school for treatment and wanted to focus on something other than my cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatments. Since my experience in the Maternity Center was such a wonderful one, I wanted to be involved with families documenting their little ones and hence my inspiration.
What is your most popular sticker design?
My most popular sticker design for girls is my Jade set with bright blues, yellows, and pink that have a adorable scalloped edge design. My most popular sticker design for boys is my Wesley set with blues and green that are shaped like neckties.
How has ShipStation helped your business?
ShipStation has been such a HUGE help and boost for my business. It has streamlined by shipping and invoice process so much that I’m able to spend more time creating new designs and expanding my product line. Shipstation has dramatically reduced my shipping and invoicing process by at least 75% to 80%.
What is your favorite ShipStation feature?
I have two very favorite ShipStation features. The first feature is marking my orders as shipped in each marketplace. The second feature is the automatic notification to my customers with their relevant shipping and tracking information. Both of these are such great timesavers
