We've worked with ShipHero for over 2 years and had a great experience for the first 1-1.5 years. Over the past 6 months things have gone downhill FAST. Reading the other recent reviews, it's clear we are not the only ones having these issues. Impossible to reach support (no more chat feature or phone number), orders taking weeks to ship out, losing our inventory (currently almost 1,000 units of our inventory is unaccounted for and they have no idea where it is, it has been over a month since this issue started and still no resolution), using bizarre unknown shipping carriers, our "account manager" never responds to emails, and so much more. We're a small company and they've forced us to split our inventory into 4 different locations due to "load balancing" which is causing tons of split shipments and delays, it doesn't make any sense for a company of our size to be split into this many warehouses. Also potential damage/loss due to our inventory being in transit much more than necessary. Most recently we needed a special project performed, their special project coordinator confirmed they could do it in early November and said they started working on it, then over 6 weeks later told us they can't do it and are refusing to do it. We offered to hire someone to go in and do it, but they said the only option is to ship it out to a third party, then ship it back. Which is not realistic as there is no third party who can do this besides another fulfillment company. This is something we need done in order to continue doing business, so we're now being forced to look at other fulfillment options (so far we've found 5 that are all willing to do the project for us). Shiphero does not care and clearly does not value us as a long term client whatsoever. It's just super unfortunate since everything was so smooth for that first year and now it's destroying our business. We're getting countless customer complaints daily due to the shipping delays and split shipments, and it's been extremely damaging to our business. Stay FAR AWAY if you are a small business looking for a reliable fulfillment partner.

Hello Team Fit Bake,
We unfortunately fell behind this Peak season despite our team's best efforts. It is never our intention to disappoint a client. We have already begun to re-evaluate your processes and procedures to ensure we do better for all of our clients in 2023. Thank you.

Close to the worst out there. If you ship anything larger than a cubic foot, you are charged Dimensional Weight BUT ShipHero won't tell you what that cost is until after the items ships! There's no easy way to bill that cost to the customer, so customer-paid rates are unusable.

There is no real time shipping calculator at checkout and ShipHero only provides you a rate table for non-dimensional rate (don't fall for their zone pricing pitch! it's not Dimensional Weight!), so you have no idea of the costs until after an order ships.

We asked for DIM pricing and the box sizes that SH uses and were told to download our historical purchases to figure out the box sizes and pricing ourselves! Oof. That's like saying "work with us and we won't tell you how much we cost until we bill your credit card! Surprise!" Zero effort to help us know what we have to pay. Hardly a transparent partner working to keep our business.

Oh, and no account manager, no phone number to call, takes days/weeks on getting service ticket responses, and orders that are SLA'd to be fulfilled in 3 days are taking 3 weeks to be fulfilled.

A year ago, this was a great app and service. At the time, would've recommended it to anyone. Now? RUN FAR, FAR, FAR AWAY. They previously used a great chat support feature and it was great. They got rid of that and moved to a ticketed system, which wasn't too bad, but they became slightly less responsive. Now, you submit a ticket and you'll be lucky to get a response in weeks. They don't have a customer service number to actually talk to someone (how's that possible?). Asked to meet with someone to discuss numerous issues in September. Meeting was cancelled 20 minutes before the scheduled time and it was never rescheduled. Been trying to get products back from them but they won't (refuse to) respond. They won't respond to inquiries on social media. Shopify needs to remove this app ASAP until this company starts responding to its customers. There are many other fulfillment services to look into and definitely do so before going with this app. Suspect the company will reply stating the client support team will be in touch. Don't be fooled, client support is virtually nonexistent and don't expect a reply from the client support team.

Until they get things fixed, avoid unless you want your business to be crippled. ShipHero used to be amazing, but as of the past two months, are extremely understaffed and not delivering on their service level agreement. Their support has been lacking tremendously lately, taking anywhere from 4 days - nearly 2 weeks to respond to inquiries. I have run out of stock because their receiving timelines are now 10+ days. If a customer has an order issue and I need to reach out to support for assistance, I now have to tell the customer I will investigate and get back to them in around a week with an update. I have orders which are not meeting the SLA deadline, and shipping out weeks delayed. I have boxes of 100 units which are missing, and after a month of investigating, still no updates on the status. This is just a fraction of the issues I am currently having. Belen has been wonderful in the past and has offered to look into these inquiries, however, nothing has changed and it has been nearly two months of poor service. Their lack of service is literally destroying my business.

Hired ShipHero to help with pre-orders. It takes a lot to get me to the point of writing a bad review, They've been having "some delays at the warehouse" and my orders have not been shipped out in over two weeks. In addition to that they don't have a live support system, so every thing you ask them has to go through a ticket system which if they respond at all takes about 48 hours on average to receive a response and it involves no resolution but rather "we'll look into this and get back to you." I asked to have my inventory back and they told me they have sent it to different warehouses across the country and it will take up to 30 days to get it back to me! It is September 20th to day and I still have customers that are waiting for their order since AUGUST 26th. On top of that, while holding my inventory hostage they are charging me "storage fees." They also, without my agreement, sent my inventory to different locations so if an order contained something they have in PA and something they have in LV, they sent it from two different locations and charged me twice for the same order that would have cost 1/2 the amount. The staff is incompetent, disorganized, unresponsive, and I have no idea how in the world this company is operating at all. The worst experience I have ever had working with a service based company. Stay far, far away.

UPDATE 9/28: DOWN rating to 2 stars. Service support is pretty much non-existent. Unlike most companies these days, there's not a feature to chat with support, nor phone number. The only way is via a ticket system. I have a multiple tickets that have been open for 9+ days. What's worse is that this is a 3pl company and I can't get accurate inventory numbers on the panel. Looking at what we shipped to the warehouse and what they shipped to our customers , the numbers in inventory don't match what is being displayed on the app. On top of that, I can't get an answer to why the pricing is completely random for the same SKU from order to order. Some are priced 2x the amount (that ticket is 8 days old). REVIEW 9/14
We signed up with ShipHero 3 months ago and due to delays on our side only just launched yesterday . My rep, Silvana was amazing. She walked me through the process from beginning to end and took the time to customize certain parts of ShipHero so we could do split orders with another fulfillment vendor. The app is pretty easy to use. I like the fact there are no shipping zones so you can pick one warehouse that's near your manufacturer and be done. Prices are quite reasonable for storage, pick fees and shipping. I do wish it would support posthero integration for Active Campaign and not just Klaviyo.

UPDATE: We've been 11 (!) days waiting for billing ticket #47302 (change our shipping polybag, so we are not charged for oversize) and 6 days for ticket #48268 (question about billing cycle) to be handled. Plus, we were overcharged again on September 24th ($23.42 to ship a $12 shipment), 12 days after the "support team will work to correct any billing issues." END OF UPDATE.
I'm sorry to leave this review because we liked SH initially. We have been overcharged for *months*. What you read in other reviews is true. We have paid over $30 shipping for an order that should cost less than $12. You won't know anything unless you go inside each bill and review each charge, wasting your time. One thing is for sure. *Every* single week, we found incorrect charges. They apologize, say they will look into it, and the story continues. This is so frustrating. Knowing a company is stealing your money but moving inventory elsewhere (for which they need 30 days, according to their TOS!) would be detrimental and make you lose a ton of sales. The app is average at best. It does not update from Shopify in real-time. We have products inside the app with the incorrect SKU. We had products which we had removed from our store months ago. But they were still showing in Shiphero. Their "dropshipping" functionally to mark products as such rarely works. Orders will be stuck as "not ready" because there is a product inside with no inventory, even if it is marked as dropshipping (so it should be ignored). The mistakes are frequent. Every single week we need to reach out to support. It might be a fake charge, a lost product, or they forgot to ship a product because they stocked it in the wrong location. You name it. It's a shame. Things were not as bad when we started over a year ago. I cannot recommend this company as of today since they literally overcharge secretly. No live support either. Their *flat* rates are not worth it. You will end up paying way more, not only in bogus charges due to system issues or employees picking the wrong package, increasing the weight (even if you have your custom packaging) but spending your valuable time dealing with this instead of working on growing your business. We have requested a videocall with someone in management several times. Never happened. They just apologize and tell you they'll work on it. I really hope they get it together because, as of now, they are not a good company to work with.

We are using this App since 2020. And we overpaid almost $500+ USD for their hidden fake invoice. BE AWARE!! You will have no option to remove your card from their dashboard. You will have your regular invoice. But they will charge your card hiddenly without any reason. Their customer support will ask you to pay the same invoice 2-3 times. You will have no records. Even after 1 year when we shout very much, they add a paid status on the invoice. Because there was no status before. So just think how horrible it was, You paid an invoice and no status BOOM! they charge again. Each time you have to fight 2-3 days by email with your bank transaction proof, But if you did not notice or check then you will be charged hiddenly. We stop getting their service from January 2022, But why we are writing a review today? OH yes! Because still, we have no service! No product with them but we got charged $20.74 on 19th May 2023. Seems funny? No this is normal when you are on ShipHero. And you will not able to remove your card as well. Only you can change a card. Shopify itself starts a good service for inventory fulfillment with 90 days of free storage. We switch to that now. Seems like we have now come to haven from the hell of ShipHero! (Well, still we get the bills from the hell)

We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We have already reached out to your company to let you know that this was unfortunately an innocent oversight. While in the process of cleaning up our records there was miscommunication and a wrong charge was made. We have since fixed the issue and sent an email to clear up the confusion and apologize. Once again, we are sorry that this happened.

The app was easy to install and my customer support contact (Silvana) has been accessible along each step to ensure smooth running of the app and connection to Shopify. The team has been very useful and orders are getting shipped on time. No customer issues or damages have been reported as yet and we have been up and running approximately 3 weeks. I am thoroughly impressed thus far. Keep up the good work.
