eCommerce Label Printing: Shippo & PackYak Case Study

Shippo gives eCommerce customers access to pre-negotiated USPS, UPS, DHL shipping rates. They offer detailed tracking information, automated return labels, quick integration to storefronts like Shopify, Woo-Commerce, Square, and more. 100,000+ eCommerce brands currently use Shippo to generate labels at the best price.

The Challenge

PackYak is an eCommerce fulfillment company. They offer their customers the ability to connect eCommerce storefronts like Shopify, Amazon, and many more, to PackYak’s warehouse management software. PackYak then accepts customer inventory as it leaves manufacturing facilities, warehouses these products, and ships orders around the globe. As a fulfillment provider, PackYak must offer the most competitive shipping rates to their customers or they'll lose business to their competitors. The additional challenge is finding a shipping partner who is able to provide return services, order tracking, open API, eCommerce platform flexibility, along with the potential to integrate seamlessly into many different eCommerce storefronts. Beyond these minimum requirements, PackYak also hoped to find a partner with a personable staff that wanted to work together to find overlapping growth opportunities for both parties.

The Solution 

After talking to countless label printing services, PackYak was fortunate enough to find Shippo. Shippo solved PackYak's eCommerce label printing needs while also allowing them to offer their eCommerce customers so much more. Partnering with Shippo offered the ability to integrate directly into the PackYak warehouse management system in just minutes. This simple, one click integration also applied to the eCommerce storefronts of PackYak’s customers, Shopify, eBay, Woo-Commerce, and many others.

Shippo’s shipping platform seamlessly pushes tracking numbers through PackYak’s warehouse software, directly to the connected storefront’s of PackYak’s business partners.  Everyday, thousands of eager customers receive these tracking + delivery updates through email. And soon after, a PackYak package arrives on their doorstep with a label created from Shippo’s platform. On that note, Shippo’s USPS, DHL, and UPS shipping rates cannot not be beaten anywhere else! If you're an eCommerce seller, you have to take a look at the savings Shippo can give you. These spectacular rates give PackYak the ability to offer customers supreme value, with every member of the business ecosystem, PackYak, their customer, and the delivery recipient saving a pretty penny on shipping cost.

As far as returns go, Shippo’s option for generating returns in-platform was a game changer for PackYak’s customers. It really helps the return process go much more smoothly for both eCommerce sellers and consumers, so everybody wins. Plus, return labels aren't charged until receiving a scan by the post office - so if a customer changes their mind and chooses not to return the item after the label is generated, no sweat, Shippo never charges the account! 

Beyond each of these points, Shippo has gone out of their way to help PackYak grow as a business and make sure that their solutions are always operating to the best of their ability. Shippo’s large team stays in regular contact with PackYak to offer and discover mutually beneficial opportunities. A partnership with Shippo is worth its weight in gold to any growing eCommerce businesses!
