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
  • 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 am so happy with Pirate Ship. The app is easy to use and the prices are great. They recently got better pricing with USPS and passed on the savings to us. I really appreciate that I can quickly see is USPS or UPS is better for pricing and/or delivery time. The customer service is amazing, very responsive and beyond helpful. Thank you!!

    Whew! Where do I begin? First of, customer service wins & the fact that the app is free however this App is lacking a lot of technique features in comparison to other apps. If you're a small business owner making between 1-50 orders per month you won't find much of a problem here but as you start to expand you realize this app isn't as efficient for larger amount of orders. Bulking orders is a hassle so I'm forced to have to fulfil orders one at a time which ends up costing more money in the long run. You're unable to customize postage i.e adding a note under the tracking number for your customers, you can only do so if you create an order which again doesn't make any sense if the order is already imported from Shopify. Another huge issue is text marketing, I want my customers to be updated BOTH email & text. This app only provides email shipping updates, we're about to enter into 2022 & this feature isn't available? Something has to be done about that. The list goes on but these are the biggest problems & I am really hoping you can make these changes SOON because you guys still win with customer service & easy to navigate app.
