We have been using the shopify-shipwire integration for about 4 months now, after migrating from an internally built e-commerce front end connected to Amazon FBA. As might be expected, there have been minor hiccups along the way, but we've been pretty happy with the integration. Setting it up was relatively easy and we were able to talk to someone at Shipwire to make sure our products were set up properly.

Pros:
- Warehouse receiving guidelines are pretty straightforward and not nearly as cumbersome as Amazon
- Support team is responsive
- The integration with shopify is quick and easy

Cons:
- If you have low stock on an item, watch it very closely. We found that shopify continued to accept orders on an out of stock product because shipwire counts incoming inventory (INCLUDING returns, which might have to be scrapped) as available inventory.
- currently shipwire is not able to communicate to shopify when an order actually ships. If you're trying to reconcile sales to inventory between the two systems for financial/cogs purposes, this makes it tough

Overall, we are happy. Just go in with the expectation that while this will make your life much much easier, it is not completely hands off (yet). We have addressed some of the "cons" directly with the company and they seem committed to continuing to make improvements.

Totes amaze. Everything is automated and that makes life easy.

I agree with the other review on here. I submitted a ticket to customer services over a week ago and someone responded to say they would look in to it and get back to me by Thursday, then they never followed it up. When I chased them I didn't get a response. It reflects terribly on a logistics business, giving the impression that they are disorganised and poorly equipped to support their customers. Like most people, I am hesitant to risk the reputation of my own brand on a fulfillment company that can't even reply to support tickets and emails.

Feb 2014 UPDATE: Some time after writing my original review above I was contacted by someone at Shipwire who then dealt with the enquiry and spent quite a lot of time and effort to resolve it and keep me informed of progress. It seems Shipwire have recently made some organisational changes to ensure that customer service (and I suspect new customer onboarding) is improved. So credit to them for this.

I should also comment that the technical integration between our store and their platform was relatively seamless and straightforward from the outset.

Works flawless. I highly recommend Shipwire to any small business. We have been using them for over 2 years and everything has been running smoothly. You will be amazed at how convenient it is and how much time you can gain back by no longer having to worry about doing your own packing and shipping. The setup takes a bit in the beginning, but from then on you are FREE!!

Being able to connect my Shopify site to Shipwire has given me back my life! I used to have to pack and ship all of my orders myself and it was extremely time-consuming. Now with, literally, a push of a button on my iPhone (I used the Shopify app that allows me to review the order and then promote it straight to Shipwire) I've fulfilled the order and I didn't have to spend any time with boxes, tape, printing labels, etc.
I didn't give it 5 stars for the following reasons:
(1) There are no email alerts when a package can't be shipped out due to an address error or problem. If I don't actually log on to the Shipwire site, I may not realize that an order has been sitting there, un-shipped, for a day or two. They should send an email alert when an order can't be processed.
(2) They only ship Mon-Fri. When I shipped my own products I shipped 7 days a week (I'm in NYC and our P.O. is open every day). I would have expected Shipwire to at least be open 6 days a week so that my Friday orders wouldn't have to wait until Monday to be shipped.

Overall, I highly recommend Shipwire to any small business. I've been using them for a little over a year and everything has been running smoothly for me. You will be amazed at how convenient it is and how much time you can gain back by no longer having to worry about doing your own packing and shipping.

Shipwire is fantastic. Excellent customer service, a backend that makes sense, and shipping is super reliable and quick. Would definitely recommend.

Great App, Great Company. Everything works easily & simply, and the staff are great to deal with as well. Highly recommended to any retailer looking for a backend shipping solution for their Shopify storefront

I almost drowned fulfilling my own product from my garage. Then I was told about Shipwire! The did a great job handholding me to get my product up and running with them. It really made the whole process automated. We are now using it for Amazon, website, and Ebay fulfillment. We just opened a UK center too and look forward to our expansion. I highly recommend Shipwire! Cheers, Dave, iOgrapher.com

Shipwire is more than an app, it has been a great partnership in growing my ecommerce businesses. We have customers worldwide, and with the dedication of our account rep, our business has grown tremendously in the last few months since launch. The Shipwire team has assisted us with everything from small order fixes with our customers, to strategic changes that help to benefit our stores.

The platform and UI are pretty simple to use. What I love is that if I ever have a suggestion on enhancing certain features I can run it by my account manager and she takes the feedback back to the engineering team. The setup is pretty seamless as well. I highly recommend Shipwire for an all-around great service.
