AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 12, 2012 — ShipStation, the leading web-based shipping platform for online retailers, announced today that it has inked a deal with Newegg, one of the most recognizable U.S. brands in the e-commerce space. This partnership will further contribute to ShipStation’s accelerated growth over the last few months, during which it has added to a customer base of over 3,000 online retail stores and processed over 1 million shipping labels monthly.
This integration joins two companies with proven capabilities in distinct markets. ShipStation is a robust and dynamic shipping solution that responds to the critical shipping needs of today’s online business owners and includes such features as batch label processing, configurable automation rules, real-time tracking, and more. Taking advantage of the streamlined order fulfillment process, ShipStation sellers can prepare shipping labels for five items or 500 items in mere minutes.
Newegg’s online marketplace extends the company’s comprehensive selection of computers and consumer electronics to include a variety of additional categories such as apparel and accessories, home living, sporting goods and toys and games. Newegg Marketplace gives sellers an easy, effective way to offer their products to Newegg’s 19 million registered customers.
“We are very excited about our new partnership with ShipStation,” said Lloyd Mendoza, Director of Newegg Marketplace. “Newegg is always striving to improve the customer shopping experience, and ShipStation will help merchants process and fulfill customer orders much faster, resulting in increased satisfaction. We look forward to offering this new service to our customers and sellers.”
“Newegg Marketplace merchants will now be able to use ShipStation in connection with their Newegg accounts to minimize their shipping costs and maximize their shipping efficiency,” said Curtis Mitchell, Director of Business Development for ShipStation. “This relationship will provide yet another major marketplace in which our customers can seamlessly sell their products and fulfill orders.”
ShipStation’s collaboration with Newegg opens the door for a new group of online retailers to experience the ease of preparing domestic and international shipping labels through an expanding list of carriers, including UPS, FedEx and USPS. At the same time, they can plug into ShipStation’s rich network of more than 30 marketplace partners including Amazon, eBay, and Etsy as well as shopping cart solutions such as Magento, Shopify & Volusion.
Existing ShipStation customers say the company’s partnership with Newegg is a valuable complement to an already full list of marketplace integrations. “Just when I thought ShipStation couldn’t get any better, they integrated with Newegg, the only marketplace that still required some manual processing on my end — No more,” said Alan Turksu of Satechi, a joint customer. “Everything is now fully integrated and automated through ShipStation. Everything!”
