ShipStation expands presence in UK with new office in London

ShipStation

ShipStation announced the opening of its new office in London, accelerating its global growth.

Already a leading delivery management software solution in the UK, ShipStation offers ecommerce retailers more integrations than any other solution and exceptional customer service to support local online sellers.

ShipStation’s new London office supports the company’s rapid expansion in the UK, with plans to continue its international growth later this year in France.

Ecommerce comprises a larger share of retail in the UK than in most other global markets, including the US.

ShipStation’s easy-to-use shipping solution and discounted carrier rates help drive operational efficiency, business growth, and increased sales for online sellers in the UK.

“After seeing continued growth in the UK, we’re excited to announce the opening of our new London office, and our continued commitment to local ecommerce retailers to improve operational efficiencies and deliver exceptional customer experiences.”

Andrew Norman, General Manager, ShipStation UK

The UK has one of the most advanced ecommerce landscapes globally. However, online merchants are often limited when it comes to reaching their customers across different channels and are forced to sacrifice cost for convenience.

ShipStation provides merchants with the freedom to choose their carriers and channels, no matter the size of their business.

With this flexibility, the company helps to scale small businesses along with the shifting habits and expectations of today’s consumer.

“ShipStation is by far the most important part of our business in allowing us to process our orders from every store and marketplace with multiple couriers. ShipStation really helped us to grow our business both in the UK and internationally.”

Jason Bain, Co-Founder of KOVERED

Over 150 integrations in the UK

Since launching in the UK in 2016, ShipStation has offered small businesses and enterprise retailers over 150 integrations for a variety of selling, order processing, inventory management, and fulfilment options.

ShipStation now has teams in the UK and Ireland as part of its global operation offering support 24/7.

The company partners with all major selling channels, ecommerce platforms, and carriers in the UK to meet the variety of needs of online sellers, including Amazon, eBay, Shopify, Magento, BigCommerce, Royal Mail, DPD, Hermes, and more.

Additionally, ShipStation offers customised branding, embedded cart solutions, and access to discounted labels with fair and transparent pricing within a single platform to seamlessly manage all of their needs.

ShipStation also rolled out its Solutions Partner programme in the UK earlier this year.

The programme is open to agencies and integrators that are committed to building outstanding relationships and fulfilment experiences for clients. It offers three different levels based on commitment and investment with ShipStation.

Among the many benefits, partners can earn a commission on client referrals, get training and enablement from ShipStation experts, set up developer accounts, and access marketing and sales assets.

“Our partners play a crucial role in the success of modern retailers by leveraging their expertise to design fantastic solutions. The Solutions Partner Programme gives our partners the ability to offer their clients more value by integrating industry-leading delivery software. We’re delighted to add names like 5874, Statement, ELS Media WeMakeWebsites, Swanky, Zynk, TymeOnline, and Netmatter to our growing family.”

  1. We had a demo with shipstation and the user interface and capabilites were impressive. It did not fully fit with our CMS as they were still developing it so that is why we could not proceed. However, if you are just starting out with selling on multiple channels using multiple shipping services/package sizes then it is worth checking out for sure.
