Stripe Connect for Shipping

By Shippo

Stripe Relay Shippo Integration

As of November 2019, Stripe deprecated its Orders API and is no longer accepting new customers. The below blog post remains to help legacy customers connect and troubleshoot. Questions? Please reach out to support@goshippo.com.

We’re excited to announce our latest integration with Stripe.

Now any merchant using Stripe for managing their e-commerce business can automatically sync their orders to the Shippo dashboard for shipping. Fulfilled orders information will be synced back to Stripe, along with the tracking number of the shipment.

Simply sign up for Shippo, and sync your Stripe account from the Connect tab of your Shippo account.

Using the Shippo dashboard, businesses can connect to multiple shipping carriers to compare shipping rates, purchase shipping labels, generate return labels, track shipments, and manage orders.

Shippo Dashboard

This new integration is an extension of our partnership with Stripe where any developers using Stripe can get real time shipping rate quotes from Shippo for their business. This integration allows you to display real-time shipping rates at checkout, purchase shipping labels through the API or manually through the dashboard.

Whether you’re building custom shipping solution, or just want to plug into an easy shipping dashboard, Shippo can help you!


Shippo is a multi-carrier API and web app that helps retailers, marketplaces and platforms connect to a global network of carriers. Businesses use Shippo to get real-time rates, print labels, automate international paperwork, track packages and facilitate returns. Shippo provides the tools to help businesses succeed through shipping.
