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.

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!

Here's our pirate philosophy: Free is best!

Call us pirates, but we think everyone deserves the cheapest USPS rates. Come aboard Pirate Ship to level the playing field!

I save around 50 cents to a dollar on each package shipped using Pirate Ship rather than Shopify.
For example:
.7 pound package on
Shopify: $3.93
Pirate Ship: 3.21

Saved 72 cents. Nearly a dollar.

Small things that add up. After 100 orders I save 50-100 bucks on shipping. That's 50-100 bucks that I would have wasted. Pirate ship is the best.
Shopify UI is a little bit easier obviously but both are easy and for the money I save with Pirate Ship. Never going back. Thank you Pirate Ship.

Total lifesaver! I've been selling online for 20 years and believe me - I have used just about every shipping platform and ecommerce plugin out there, but this one takes the cake. It is super simple yet offers everything and more other paid apps do - like reporting - except for FREE!

I LOVE that it is exceptionally straightforward, I didn't have to dig around help guides or watch videos to figure out how it works or what all it can do.

It makes sense upfront and it just WORKS!

I was also relieved to find that the spreadsheet doesn't have to be overly complicated or formatted *juuuust right* like other services that can be SUPER finicky.

The only issue some people might have is it is only USPS; which is fine for me, I don't use anything else because in my experience USPS is cheaper, faster, and more convenient for customers so I honestly don't need integration with 200+ other carriers.

Thank you thank you THANK YOU so much Pirate Ship - you've made a difference!

This app is a total life saver for my business. So easy to use and set up. Love how easy it was to integrate with my Shopify and shipping has never been this easy. Thank you for having this available to the small businesses like mine.
