Shippo Introduces General Access USPS ePostage

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Shippo, the leading API platform for shipping, today announced they are the first to launch USPS ePostage for general access. Through USPS' new ePostage program, Shippo enables any business to access USPS shipping services online. This is the first license of this type issued since 1999, marking an important step for USPS and Shippo as they drive innovation in shipping for ecommerce businesses, marketplaces and platforms globally.

Shippo works with more than 10,000 businesses including fast-growing, venture-backed companies such as Mercari, Weebly, GoDaddy, Dia&Co and GOAT to help them solve shipping challenges and optimize their operations. The partnership represents a major growth opportunity for USPS as they take advantage of Shippo's technology to onboard more businesses directly to USPS with a fast and efficient method. Currently, established marketplaces such as Amazon and Etsy rely on ePostage for members of their own communities.

"When we founded Shippo, our goal was to improve the experience for any business who does shipping by making it more accessible," said Laura Behrens Wu, co-founder and CEO of Shippo. "Now with Shippo providing ePostage for public access, ecommerce businesses of any size can now directly connect with the USPS within minutes, and access valuable, timely information from a variety of other carriers, all from one place."

Ecommerce is the fastest growing trillion dollar market globally. In fact, global ecommerce has grown 15 percent year-over-year. With its rapid growth, shipping for online sales represents a significant business opportunity for the USPS. As the USPS sits high on the technology adoption curve, they recognize the need to work with leading and emerging technology companies to help them grow their digital and physical operations.

Through its current agreement, any Shippo customer can access the USPS directly, relying on a seamless and transparent process for shipping. Businesses of all sizes can sidestep the hurdles that often slow down their operations. This typically involves a heavy upfront investment of time and resources to integrate with carriers. By working with Shippo, customers gain instant access to multiple carriers, in addition to the USPS, through one integration. Today, Shippo supports over 20 shipping providers across North America, Europe, and Australia.
