How ShipStation helps Marketplace sellers
If you sell across multiple selling channels, shipping can be time-consuming. Finding a way to quickly configure shipping information for all your orders regardless of the order source is crucial. Different orders require different shipping options. Automatically applying the appropriate shipping services cuts down on fulfillment time. Furthermore, multi-channel sellers may find difficulty promoting their brands when selling through marketplaces.
When you use ShipStation, you can brand your customer communications, such as packing slips, emails, and branded tracking pages. This level of branding creates greater brand loyalty between you and your customers—increasing the likelihood of repeat customers.
