Shopify shipping FAQs

How does shipping work with Shopify?

There are several ways to approach Shopify shipping, but the simplest approach is to use a shipping automation platform like Starshipit.

While Shopify’s native shipping solution is a good option for many retailers, Starshipit’s ability to let you bring your own shipping rates and integrate with multiple carriers means it’s a much better solution for growing businesses.

Starshipit simplifies your shipping processes through an advanced set of features that are constantly being improved. Here are some of the core features that make Starshipit a valuable tool for streamlining your shipping operations:

  • Starshipit gives retailers one platform where they can manage all orders and select the best courier.
  • Automate each step of the fulfilment process such as generating shipping labels, packing slips, manifests, and submitting customs documentation, all within one dashboard.
  • Correct invalid addresses in one click, so customers will always get their orders, even if they entered their address details incorrectly.
  • Bring your own rates without any penalties. No account? No problem. We can either connect you with a courier to obtain more competitive shipping rates directly, or you can choose from our plug-and-play services. We have options for every stage of your journey.
  • Branded tracking pages and SMS or email notifications are sent directly to customers during five stages of delivery can keep them informed at every step.
  • Set up a dedicated branded returns portal, relieving staff of a significant time administration task.
  • Offer different options at checkout, including same day, express or international, so your customers can choose the delivery option that suits them best.
  • Take the stress out of international shipping by automating a lot of the repeatable administration.
  • Support for all major couriers and apps, and if not, you can use the dynamic API to easily build your own integrations in no time at all.
