The integration gives Shopify customers new and effective methods to simplify their order fulfillment process.

Retailers can choose from more than 100 design templates for their website or can create a custom design for their online store. Shopify also allows retailers to instantly accept credit cards, without requiring a payment gateway, with one low rate for all major credit cards when using Shopify Payments. For retail locations, Shopify offers a Point of Sale system, which seamlessly integrates product, order and customer information between an ecommerce site and physical store. The company also provides Shopify Mobile, which allows retailers to accept payments from a mobile phone.

"With Stamps.com, online retailers have access to our brand new USPS BestRate shopping engine, which locates the most cost effective mail class option that meets their shipping requirements," said Sebastian Buerba, Stamps.com chief marketing officer. "Not only does this new integration ensure that Shopify customers are getting their packages delivered to buyers in the most cost-effective manner, but the BestRate shopping engine can also automate their entire shipping process, thereby reducing their time spent on order fulfillment."

"The integration with Stamps.com simplifies the entire fulfilment process for our customers, from printing the labels down to finding the best rate," said Harley Finkelstein, chief platform officer, Shopify. "Streamlining these processes allows our merchants to focus on other aspects of their businesses."
