ShipStation's vice-president of marketing Robert Gilbreath says by integrating with Sendle to improve small business logistics, the company is showing that it is serious about the Australian ecommerce market.
“Integrating Sendle into the ShipStation platform has been a priority for us since we launched in Australia,” says Gilbreath.
“With the country’s immense growth in the global ecommerce market, providing our Australian customers with the best shipping options was a must.
According to Gilbreath, the ShipStation-Sendle integration gives Australian ecommerce businesses access to the best in Australian domestic shipping, time-saving automation and customer support.
Featuring the most integrations of any ecommerce Web-based solution, ShipStation works with the likes of eBay, Amazon, WooCommerce, Shopify, Squarespace, Opencart, Magento and BigCommerce, and now Sendle.
“Customers can link their ShipStation and Sendle accounts and start shipping instantly, taking advantage of Sendle’s national flat-rate pricing and 100% carbon neutral delivery. ShipStation also helps online retailers import, organise, process, package and ship their orders quickly and easily from any Web browser.”
As part of the integration, ShipStation customers will also get free access to Sendle Premium, saving them $120 each year, and $1 per parcel.
Sendle chief executive and co-founder James Chin Moody said: “Our partnership with ShipStation is an exciting step for us to provide real choice for Australian small business. ShipStation brings their global experience and beautiful solutions to help our flourishing e-commerce sector compete in the digital economy.”
The partnership with Sendle is seen an important step as the US-based ShipStation consolidates its position in Australia and comes as other global providers such as Amazon and eBay boost their focus on the Australian market.
