About Pirate Ship

Are you getting the best USPS rates possible?

We got sea-sick buying postage with shipping software that charges monthly fees & adds markup on top of USPS services, so we built Pirate Ship.

We pass-through the cheapest USPS pricing tier available (Commercial Pricing) and don't charge any fees or add any markup. Just pay the actual cost of the postage as you go!

You'll get the best rates for all services, including Priority Mail Cubic, which can save you tons of treasure compared to buying shipping labels with other software.

Wait, everyone says they offer the "best" rates...

ARrrr matey, they're lying to you! Other shipping software adds markup on top of the Commercial Pricing rates for services like Priority Mail Cubic (Compare their rates and make them walk the plank!)

The shipping features you need & nothing you don't:

  • 100% free, easy to install, and easy to use... start shipping in seconds!
  • Automatically marks Shopify orders as "Fulfilled" & adds tracking numbers
  • Works great with Shopify Apps for recurring subscription billing like Bold or ReCharge

Great for batch shippers & subscription boxes!

Pirate Ship makes shipping identical packages simple. Quickly search, filter, and sort your Shopify orders into batches, then buy as many labels as you need for that variation. With no limits on the size of your batches, it's fast & fun to buy as much postage as you need with PirateShip.

Access Commercial Pricing for all services:

  • Priority Mail Cubic, the cheapest way to ship small packages 1-20 lbs
  • First Class Package, the cheapest service for packages that weigh 15.9 oz or less
  • First Class Package International, the cheapest way to ship internationally
  • And all other shipping services, including Priority Mail Flat Rate, Media Mail, etc!

Pirate Ship is fully loaded with all the bells & whistles:

  • Import orders from Shopify, upload spreadsheets, or enter single addresses
  • Automatic USPS-certified address validation & correction
  • Google-powered address auto-complete & saved address memory
  • Schedule tracking emails to send shipping notifications at specific times
  • Generate PDF or ZPL labels for any type of printer
  • Create End-of-Day SCAN Forms for the entire day's labels or by batch
  • Print directly to any printer in the world with Google Cloud Print
  • Create a public Share Link to send your labels to someone else
  • Pay-on-Use Return Labels for easy customer returns
  • Simple customs forms for easy international shipping
  • Add-ons like insurance, signature confirmation and more!

I don't normally write reviews but feel obligated to since the Pirate Ship product and support is just so unbelievably terrific. For context, I've been using Pirate Ship now for ~30 days.

Here's why they're great:

#1 - It easily integrates into Shopify. Within 30 seconds, I can print the labels of every order I need to ship for the day. It doesn't matter how many. It just works.

#2 - If I need to print just one, no problem. Just go through and print one. I feel like they thought through common issues you have when shipping.

#3 - The actual shipping price you get for USPS is 'I can't believe it's this cheap' cheap. I'd say 20-50% cheaper than going through USPS direct. I also compared this shipping cost against a 3PL and it wasn't even close. I save soooo much money on shipping with Pirate Ship.

#4 - Their support is fantastic. They respond (and solve) issues when they pop up. Because we have a fair amount of volume, we're bound to run into quirks and whatnot but Pirate Ship is a true partner and wants you to succeed.

No complaint other than "Improve App Description."

I installed the App and it pulls in my orders nicely, but there is no way to display the shipping rate to the customer and the customer can't complete their orders. The rates are great, but you must preset a fixed shipping rate for each product regardless of where it ships or offer free shipping.

I almost upgraded my Shopify Plan which Shopify leads you to believe is necessary to use third party shipping apps. That won't matter in this case.

The app looks great, but make sure your use case fits the actual functionality.

This app is wonderful! Before I found it was was manually doing many things that I can now do with the click of a button. Saves me so much time! Also the low cost of shipping is a +++. So glad I found it.
