How to Create a Shipping Label

Our goal at Shippo is to simplify shipping for e-commerce stores and marketplaces. Shipping is complicated and we’re here to take the burden of learning the ins and outs of optimizing e-commerce shipping off merchants’ shoulders.

Our shipping API and ecommerce web app automates and streamlines the process of creating shipping labels and tracking packages. With our user-friendly shipments dashboard and RESTful API, we cover all bases to provide e-commerce business owners the tools they need in order to save time and money for their shipping.

If you’re a small business merchant selling on an e-commerce platform like Shopify, Magento, Etsy, or GoDaddy, using Shippo is the cheapest way to ship a package across the US and internationally. With the lowest USPS Priority Mail rates on the market and incredibly low international rates, US merchants are set up to save hundreds of dollars a month on their shipping.
