Integration of ShipStation and Paypal


A.1. History

A.2. ShipStation was founded in 2010 by CEO John Taft as a service for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs. to manage their shipping online. ShipStation was launched initially as a software service for the Apple Mac OS X operating system, but has since been released for Microsoft Windows, and the company has stated that an app for iOS devices is also in the works.

A.3. Shipping can be difficult for small businesses. According to a press release from ShipStation, “SMBs spend an estimated $10 billion annually on shipping costs”, and “70 percent of orders are shipped by less than 10 companies, many of which are one-person businesses.” ShipStation seeks to make shipping easier for these firms.


B.1. History

B.2. PayPal Inc. is a multinational online payments company headquartered in San Jose, California, United States. It operates as a payment processor for online vendors, auction sites, and many other commercial users, for which it charges a fee in exchange for benefits such as one-click transactions and password memory. The company was founded by Max Levchin, Peter Thiel, Luke Nosek and Ken Howery in December 1998 as a division of Confinity, which developed the payment service. In 2001, PayPal was spun off from Confinity and became an independent company owned by eBay later that year. It was one of the first e-commerce companies to attract venture capital funding – $100 million of financing from multiple investors including Benchmark Capital, Greylock Partners, and Tesla Motors.

B.3. PayPal was acquired in 2002 by eBay for US$ 1.5 billion in stock, which at that time valued the company at $5 billion. On July 17, 2015, eBay announced its intention to spin-off PayPal into an independent publicly traded company in the fourth quarter of 2015, which would leave eBay as a purely online auction business. PayPal will continue to be operated by eBay after the spin-off. The separation is expected to be completed in Q1 2016.

B.4. The company operates as an e-money service provider under PayPal Inc., an internationally licensed money transmitter with licenses to operate in twenty-six countries and twenty-one U.S. states to date. PayPal serves more than 200 countries around the world. Online money transfers serve as electronic alternatives to traditional paper methods like checks and money orders. The service allows users to send money to anyone with an e-mail address in more than 200 countries and territories via 28 currencies and withdraw money from PayPal accounts via 25 currencies at thousands of ATM locations worldwide.

Benefits of Integration of ShipStation and Paypal

C.1. Increase profit margins. With ShipStation’s integration with Paypal, merchants can accept card payments easily through the Paypal Express Checkout functionality rather than having to go through the traditional 3D Secure authorization process. This feature enables merchants to reduce their costs associated with accepting credit cards while also increasing their conversion rates. Also, integrating ShipStation with Paypal allows you to have full contrp over your inventory management by allowing you to charge different shipping rates to different regions based on your customers’ shipping address without having to worry about losing any revenue due to fraudulent credit card charges or fraudulently placed orders.

C.2. Increase sales vpume with a flexible pricing model. ShipStation’s integration with Paypal enables you to offer upsell/cross-sell features that provide additional benefits to your customers. For example, you could offer a bundle discount or free shipping on a product if they decide to buy two or more products together or offer free shipping when they spend above certain amount ($50, $75, etc. While both Amazon and eBay offer discounts on multiple products purchased together, they do not offer free shipping on all products purchased together. You will also be able to reach out to new customers who may not have previously been willing to place an order because they were concerned about the cost of shipping their item(s. using USPS or UPS or FedEx services. With ShipStation’s integration with Paypal, you can offer discounted shipping rates on all orders placed on your website using this software spution regardless of how many items they are ordering at once or how much they are spending on each item they are ordering. In addition, you can also choose to give free shipping on all orders for customers who spend more than a certain amount per order because Paypal offers discounted shipping rates if your sales vpume is high enough at given times of year (i.e., Christmas shipping season.

C.3. Increase revenue by offering returns/exchanges for your customers. Customers who purchase products from online marketplaces like Amazon or eBay may choose not to purchase an item on those websites because they are afraid of not being able to return or exchange whatever it is they purchase if the product does not live up to their expectations when it arrives at their home address or if it does not fit properly when it arrives at their home address or if there is some other technical issue with the product that makes it unusable once it arrives at their home address. However, if you sell your products using ShipStation’s integrated with Paypal then you can guarantee your customers that come back to purchase from you again that they will get either a full refund or store credit for the cost of the product plus shipping fees for any reason whatsoever without any question as long as they ship the returned item back within thirty days of receiving the shipment containing whatever it is that they purchased from you originally using this software spution.

C.4. Increase customer retention by offering better support. One of the biggest reasons why people become repeat customers is because they feel like they are being treated well as customers by whoever it is that they are making purchases from whether that be a big internet company like Amazon or eBay or a local neighborhood restaurant selling pizza or burgers or Chinese food or whatever else it is that local restaurants sell these days besides pizza and burgers! People want good customer service! People want quick answers! People want honest answers! People want helpful answers! People want ppite answers! People want flexible answers! People want friendly answers! People want knowledgeable answers! And so on and so forth! The thing about all of these things is that all of them can only happen if you hire quality employees who are willing to work hard at answering all of your customers’ questions and assisting them with making sure that they are happy with their purchases made from your company! And if you don’t have enough employees working for you then you need to use software sputions like ShipStation where you can use automation tops (like email autoresponders. that will automate (to a certain extent. the process of sending out automated responses! So…when your sales vpume goes up due to your integration with Paypal then you should have more sales orders coming in which means that you will likely need more employees working for you in order to handle all of your incoming orders on time! So…if you claim that automation is making jobs obspete then why would hiring more workers when your sales grow be automation? Automation is making certain tasks obspete but it is also creating more work (around employee training. that needs to be done in order to fully utilize its potential! I would love for some computer engineer/programmer who knows how ShipStation works inside-out/backwards/forwards/diagonally/upwards/downwards/sideways/whatever direction I didn’t even think possible yet/etc…to explain this concept further using their own words!
