New Feature Allows Shopify Customers to Automatically and Seamlessly Import Retail and Web Orders into ShipStation
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 30, 2013 — ShipStation the leading web-based shipping solution for online retailers, today announced an enhancement to the company’s Shopify integration, allowing customers to import orders from Shopify POS. Business owners can now import retail orders directly into ShipStation from Shopify POS, just as they do with their Shopify web store orders.
The news follows the August 28th announcement of Shopify POS, an integrated point of sale system built by the ecommerce giant to bridge the gap between offline and online retail. “This enhancement will streamline the ordering process for a large group of current Shopify customers who also operate brick and mortar stores,” said Robert Gilbreath, VP of Marketing for ShipStation. “Retailers without an ecommerce presence can now access ShipStation’s powerful order automation and returns management software via their Shopify POS System.
ShipStation and Shopify first partnered in September, 2012 to offer ShipStation’s powerful cloud-based shipping solution to Shopify’s 60,000+ online retailers. Thousands of online retail stores now benefit from the partnership each month, saving both time and money thanks to a 35-50% reduction in shipping and fulfillment times made possible by the ShipStation solution.
