Microsoft Outlook is a desktop email client and personal information manager that enables users to connect to their email, contacts, calendar, and other cloud-based services through Microsoft Exchange or Office 365. It was first released in 1996 as an email program included in the Microsoft Office suite. Microsoft Outlook has been a default program included in all versions of Windows since Windows 2000 and is available as a standalone application for Mac OS X.
ShipStation is a shipping management software designed for business owners. It’s free to try with no credit card required.

ShipStation has all the features you need to manage your orders and shipments including integrations with all major carriers, order management tops, tracking capabilities, reporting options, and more.
ShipStation can integrate with Microsoft Outlook by using Microsoft Exchange. When ShipStation is connected to Exchange through Outlook, customers do not have to reenter their credentials every time they access their shipping data. They can also use existing filters from Outlook to organize their shipments.Users can add items to ShipStation using a variety of methods. They can add manually by typing in the information or importing from an Excel file. They can also scan items through a barcode scanner or add items by taking a photo of the item or its packing slip with their mobile device camera. Once users have added products to their shipment, they can click on the “Ship” button and select from their pre-existing shipping profiles. ShipStation will then create the label for the customer with all of the correct rates and procedures automatically. As part of the integration with Exchange, ShipStation is able to sync their customers’ shipping information so that they do not have to retype it every time they send an order. This saves them time and makes it easier for them to track shipments as they come in from customers.Benefits of Integration of Microsoft Outlook and ShipStation
Integrating ShipStation with Microsoft Outlook provides a number of benefits for business owners who are using Outlook. With the integration, shipping information is easily accessible in Outlook so that customers do not have to retype it every time they send an order. This saves time and allows them to spend more time focusing on their business rather than on the logistics behind getting products shipped out to customers. Because the integration syncs all of their shipping information in real time, customers do not have to worry about sending an order one day and then realizing that they had to update an address later when they receive a new invoice. They can also track shipments from within Outlook so that they know what state the shipment is currently at and how long it will be before it reaches their customer’s doorstep. The integration also allows businesses to set up automatic reminders so that they always remember to ship out orders on time or inform customers if there is going to be a delay in shipment. This helps prevent any issues that could occur down the line due to late shipments.
