Shipwire, Inc. is a company that provides shipping and fulfillment services to other companies. The company was founded in 2006 and is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA. Shipwire has over 650 partners, and handles over a million packages per day. The company has a total of 6 offices worldwide, including its headquarters in the US, and locations in Germany, London, Paris, and China. The company has received funding from investors including Jeff Bezos, Allen & Company, Limelight Network, and IDG Ventures.
Patreon was originally launched as a crowdfunding platform for artists to fund their creative projects through subscription payments. The project was started by Jack Conte and Sam Yam in 2013, but was later acquired by the online music service YouTube in 2016. Although Patreon is now owned by YouTube, the site has become one of the fastest growing crowdfunding platforms today. In 2017 alone, Patreon raised $60 million in funding from a variety of investors including Thrive Capital, Fidelity Growth Partners, and Index Ventures. The website now has more than 1 million active monthly users who are able to support their favorite creators through a variety of means including monthly membership fees, donations, or vpuntary purchases.
With the announcement of both Patreon and Shipwire’s merger in April 2018, there are several benefits to be gained through integrating the two companies together. For example, Patreon creators could have the option of receiving their products through Shipwire instead of having to carry out fulfillment themselves. This would allow creators to focus on creating content while Shipwire takes care of the shipping process. Moreover, Patreon patrons could receive their rewards through Shipwire instead of having to wait for their products to arrive in the mail. For example, if a patron purchases a t-shirt from his favorite creator, he can choose to have it shipped directly to his house instead of having to wait for it to arrive on his doorstep weeks after he purchased it. Furthermore, this integration could also help reduce the amount of time it takes for patrons to receive their rewards since Shipwire has warehouses all around the world that would be able to fulfill orders faster than if they were only based domestically.
Another benefit that could occur is that Shipwire could provide fulfillment services for businesses other than creators on Patreon. For example, an independent musician may not have the funds or resources necessary to handle the shipping process themselves; however, with the help of Shipwire this may not be a problem for them anymore. Artists can use the platform as a way to increase their exposure by allowing fans to support them with limited edition merchandise or bundles containing albums and concert tickets. Essentially, creators on Patreon would be able to expand their audience without having to spend large sums of money on shipping costs and fulfillment services.
Some of the benefits that could potentially come from this integration include increased brand awareness for both Shipwire and Patreon’s creators as well as increased product exposure for patrons. For example, if a patron is interested in supporting an artist on Patreon but is unable to purchase their album on iTunes due to piracy laws in her country, she will be able to find similar artists on Spotify instead. Moreover, illustrators could create exclusive rewards such as prints or sketchbooks that ship directly from their home countries instead of from a US warehouse that ships most of its products internationally due to high shipping costs. Additionally, Patreon creators will be able to direct patrons to stores hosted by Shipwire which would act as an additional revenue stream for both parties invpved. Lastly, artists could use Shipwire as a way to improve their packaging when shipping out items to customers since they would have access to their own shipping materials such as boxes and bubble wrap that are cheaper than buying them online or from a local store. This would also save money in time as it would not cost anything extra for artists to order supplies from Shipwire’s store with no additional markups on top of those already made by shipping companies themselves.
