UPDATE 3/12/21: ShipperHQ has finally resolved this issue of rates not being quoted correctly in the Shopify admin. While it took longer than we would have liked, we do appreciate them getting this fixed and our store is now fully up and running. Thank you to everyone on the support team that was involved in getting this resolved! I would like to request that ShipperHQ implements a log of some type to be able to view the rate requests made on the store, so that if a customer has problems checking out we are able to figure out what is causing the problem without having to reach out to support. With using ShipperHQ on bigcommerce, you are able to view the stores server logs to check for issues with checkout, but Shopify does not have anything like this on their platform unfortunately. UPDATE 1/29/21: ShipperHQ has reached out and is currently attempting to rectify the issues we are having. ShipperHQ's COO actually reached out to us personally and is actively working with his support team to get these problems fixed for us. They are coordinating with Shopify to have them also look into the problem on their end. Will update this review as progress is made. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Support is next to useless. Now experiencing massive problems with getting shipping to apply to orders created through the Shopify admin backend, that are large in size (greater than $3000.00). Support is continuing to blame shopify and instructing us to reach out to Shopify and CC them on emails. Have sent multiple emails to Shopify and have not gotten any response(Not ShipperHQ's fault). But I am assuming the developers have contacts at Shopify that we dont have, which they should be reaching out to when problems like this are appearing. Before this problem, we had an issue where our USPS Live Rate carriers would not provide quotes for orders that required more than one flat rate box. We only ship USPS using flat rate packaging, so this was a big problem for this. After contacting ShipperHQ support, they again blamed the other party and said it was a problem USPS's API. I contacted USPS and they blamed ShipperHQ as it is a 3rd party application being used with their API. I took it into my own hands to try to fix the issue, and deleted all USPS carriers and recreated them. When trying to validate the credentials, it would not validate them and just provided an error message. I again contacted support and they looked into the issue, and were finally able to validate the provided USPS credentials themselves. Come to find out this also fixed the issue of the rates for multiple flat rate boxes not being returned. It is unknown if this was a problem on ShipperHQ's side or USPS, but somehow ShipperHQ was able to fix it which means it was more than likely a problem on their end. We also use this app on a Bigcommerce store that we run, and whenever support is contacted for issues on that version, they also blame Bigcommerce and are unwilling to contact Bigcommerce themselves. The problems I experienced on Bigcommerce were in fact the fault of ShipperHQ as the support had told me we can use metric dimensions in their app and still receive live quotes for UPS when using the dimensional packing feature. Well rates were not being returned when I had the app and our stores dimensions set to use Centimeters and Kilograms. Come to find out, when changing the settings over to Imperial weights and dimensions, the problem was fixed and rates then started working! If this app is not functioning correctly, it is the developer's problem. Not Shopify's Problem. Support should be the ones contacting Shopify to rectify this issue. Not me. Especially if we are paying the developers $300 a month to use the app. For $300 a month, the amount of support and quality of it is absolutely ridiculous. I am very close to being fed up with this app and its developers and will be looking to more than likely replace it ASAP. If ShipperHQ decides they want to actually start helping and rectifying issues with their own app, I will change my review, but for now I am not satisfied whatsoever.
Thank you so much for your continued patience while our development team looked into making adjustments on our end. We’ve pushed a patch release on our end to improve the issue with Shopify. This now ensures we can handle these larger orders while staying under Shopify's API limits to ensure the attribute requests don't continue to be throttled.
Our number one priority is to make sure our customers are taken care of. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We've been using ShipperHQ for over 4 years, they are instrumental to our website and provide us a series of complex shipping rules so that we may provide fast and accurate shipping rates and services to our customers. Additionally the ShipperHQ team is a delight to work with, top class in every way!
Before using ShipperHQ we were losing around $1k/month on oversized shipments because we couldn’t get the dimensions and product packing to reflect how we were actually shipping, and that was causing up charges from our carrier. ShipperHQ’s dimensional packing feature helped us define exactly how we are packing our oversized and bulky products so that we weren’t over or undercharging customers. We could enter all of our boxes and assign them to specific products with rules for how we pack them. Now our rates are much more accurate. We don’t have to worry about under or overcharging customers no matter where we ship domestically or internationally. We have also been able to offer free shipping on select products and use the delivery date and time feature to show our customers estimated delivery times in the checkout and that’s given us a real competitive advantage. Definitely saving with ShipperHQ, and customer service was really responsive and helpful in getting things configured just right.

Thank you Shipper HQ for a great product and amazing customer service, special shout out to Dakota! I run e-comm for a boutique home furnishings site. We have always seen shipping as our biggest barrier from online sales, and Shipper HQ has finally come up with a solution. Besides having the white glove delivery partner, which was important to us, we have other complicated needs with several pickup locations, products with various lead times, etc. As a creative person, the Shipper HQ team helped me tremendously by breaking down an intimidating process into manageable steps, and the platform itself is quite easy to navigate. So yes, 5 stars!
Has a learning curve, but super powerful functionality and customizations. Support has been very helpful and responsive.

We've been using this app for months now on one of our sites. So far so good. It requires quite a bit of learning curve to setup but support is super awesome. They won't give up on you until you achieve what you're looking for.
This is geared towards complex shipping rules that Shopify's native shipping functionality (and even some shipping rules apps) are not able to provide. Almost any shipping rules requirements you have can be done here. That said, this is for recommended for complex implementations (e.g., large catalog of products that have different shipping requirements, multiple carriers, etc.).
We'll be implementing this on our other sites ASAP.
ShipperHQ is great! We've used it to solve two big problems.
1. Customers are now able to see real-time estimated delivery dates calculated by Fedex. We previously displayed a "3-6 business days" estimate.
2. We have some products that legally can't be sold in specific states. Restricting this at checkout used to to require complex Shopify Scripts written in Ruby. Setting these rules is much easier via ShipperHQ's admin.
I have been a customer for over ten years. I started using them way back when they only made an app for Magento. It just works, and frankly, I do not believe there is a better app to do the job. Shipping is complicated so the key is in your setup, but once you get it up and running, you will never have to think about it again.
Through its robust carrier rules and segmentation, we have been able to present competitive shipping options that make sense for both our B2B and B2C customers. The date and time feature is a real differentiator in our industry. Technical support and overall customer service has been extremely helpful; both in the initial setup and overcoming technical obstacles. Great app!

Shipper HQ has been awesome. We have quite a few complex rules for oversize items, geographically restricted vendors, and needed custom rates for a courier. The level of customization we achieve for displaying shipping options at checkout has been exactly what we needed. Whenever we need to adjust dimensional or courier rules the process is simple and quick. Customer service is top-notch as well. Overall we have no complaints.
