Ship Your Orders Like A Pro

Ship Your Orders Like A Pro

Ship your orders from the comfort of your home with Ship.com!

As a home business owner, your time is precious—it’s time that is likely divided between your business, family, and many other responsibilities. The last thing you have time for is standing in line to send a package. Time is money, after all.

“Shipping is so expensive! … I don’t have time to go to the post office.” We’ve all said it! But the good news is you don’t have to settle.

The answer to your problem(s) is Ship.com’s shipping tool.

Ship.com is the fastest and easiest way to print shipping labels. Sync your brand to automatically import your orders and quickly purchase and print discounted shipping labels. Ship.com offers the lowest shipping rates for the lowest monthly subscription cost.

But don’t take our word for it—our customers tell it best:

About Ship.com

Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: the package delivery process is annoying and not very fun.

What if you didn’t have to check UPS, FedEx, USPS, and Amazon sites for tracking numbers?

What if you could send packages from where you are (and never stand in line again at the post office, UPS Store, or FedEx Office)?

What if you could share in the experience of those deliveries?

Wouldn’t it be great to know when someone receives a package and get a reaction?

What if you could send a package without an address?

Ship.com is re-imagining the delivery process and has built a platform that brings it to life so you can experience delivery magic. Our innovative app is simple to activate and alerts you when your package has been delivered (perhaps one you expected or even forgot about).

If you send packages frequently, Ship.com is for you. Ship.com takes care of the annoying legwork you do to keep track of your shipments, then adds new and innovative features that make the way you send packages fun, social, and valuable.

Led by a team of executives with decades of experience in eCommerce software and services for online retailers, Ship.com is the one place that “auto-magically” connects everything you send and then helps you manage and share all your outgoing shipments.

Ship.com is available today for download on iOS and Android. You can find Ship.com on Alexa and Google Home, too.
