We’re proud to announce Shippo is now powering shipping capabilities for Fulfil, an operations-first ERP specifically designed for high volume, high growth e-commerce and wholesale merchants.
Fulfil offers the cornerstones of what a merchant needs to scale their business, including order management, inventory management, purchasing and procurement, and workflow automation—all with a focus on improving customer delight.
Shipping is a key component of Fulfil’s all-in-one offering, since shipping directly impacts customer experience and loyalty. However, Fulfil needed a more reliable way to offer USPS as a shipping option to its merchants.
Shippo Powers a More Reliable USPS Connection for Fulfil Merchants
With Shippo, Fulfil merchants can generate deeply-discounted USPS labels worry free, addressing two of the biggest pain points for an e-commerce merchant:
- With consumer expectations of free and fast shipping as the norm, shipping costs continue to be top of mind for every e-commerce merchant. Part of what Shippo offers is the ability for every business to ship at scale. Shippo negotiates contracts with the shipping providers to save businesses the hassle and to allow businesses to tap in economies of scale. Through that, Fulfil merchants can take advantage of discounts of up to 90 percent off Retail postage rates.
- Nothing stops e-commerce fulfillment from grinding to a halt more than the inability to get rates and print labels from a carrier. Our customers are printing labels 24/7, 365 days a year. Fulfil can rely on our APIs to guarantee uptime. In the background, Shippo doesn’t just connect to carrier APIs, but is storing rates locally in our own databases to reduce third-party dependency—we call it our Local Rating Engine. This enables Shippo’s API to maintain a 99.99 percent uptime.
A Shipping Integration, Powered by Shippo’s API
We’re really proud of our partnership with Fulfil, and consider it a strong indication of our commitment to powering e-commerce platforms who want to offer a wide breadth of shipping capabilities through Shippo’s best-in-class API.
“Shipping is incredibly important for merchants of all sizes, yet shipping gets increasingly complex as a business grows,” said Laura Behrens Wu, CEO and co-founder of Shippo. “We’re thrilled to partner with Fulfil in providing a comprehensive offering that supports the needs of high-volume businesses.”
