Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS SHIPPO FOR PLATFORMS?

Shippo for Platforms is a new product that utilizes Shippo’s API to give e-commerce platform providers a fully integrated shipping solution. With Shippo for Platforms, platform providers will be able to offer their merchants all the benefits of the Shippo platform — including access to our industry-leading carrier network — directly within their existing platform experience.

WHO CAN USE SHIPPO FOR PLATFORMS?

Shippo for Platforms is available to all global e-commerce site builders and marketplaces that are looking to give their merchants a comprehensive and fully-integrated shipping solution.

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM YOUR EXISTING PLATFORM AND API?

Shippo for Platforms is built on top of our underlying core platform and services that power our existing APIs, but takes our existing API capabilities a step further. Shippo for Platforms provides platform partners a more comprehensive set of tools to manage merchant administration and offer a first-class shipping experience through a native shipping integration powered by Shippo. Our extended APIs support platforms:

  • To create and manage merchant shipping accounts through Shippo sub accounts
  • Simplify merchant carrier account with the separation into child accounts so partners need only manage a single merchant ID
  • Streamline billing and reconciliation process for platforms so that it’s easy to know who to bill what, and why
