Your platform for cost-effective growth

Starshipit lets you ship as many labels as you need within your pricing plan, without any fees for using your own contracted carrier rates. The savings can add up.

For example, if you ship 500 orders per month on a competing shipping platform (that charges you 0.30c per label), that’s $150 extra you'll need to pay each month!

Lisa Williams, Professional Beauty Solutions
Liam Scanlan

“Since implementing Starshipit, we estimate that we’ll save at least $15,000 on shipping costs alone over the next 12 months. Not only that, we expect to save countless hours packing per week."

"Starshipit has a robust and direct API integration with all our carriers and a webhook that allows us to validate addresses on our front. This means that we never encounter unmanifested parcels and this has become a big cost saving for the business."

“We would have really struggled to scale if it wasn’t for Starshipit. Before using their app, our tech platforms weren’t talking, and we would have had to login to multiple carrier accounts to get orders out the door. Now, all of that is handled automatically, meaning we save 1000s of hours and dollars in fulfilment time."
