Pros: It's a super easy way to import your batch orders and produce batch postage labels on the fly! And, it's fair to say it's a fun environment!

Cons: The real answer is 'nada'. I like everything about it. But, I'll say that it would be nice if the rate shopping tool allowed you to eliminate certain shipping services from the 'pool of categories' (e.g., Parcel Select). Or, maybe you pick postage based on time-in-transit combined with lowest price, too.

Overall: Fun and easy way to print batch postage labels. Quickly.

Easy to use. Excellent batch label printing. Entertaining theme!

Pros: Ease of use. Postage pricing. Rate shopping baked-in. Available integrations, Batch label processing. Useful reports, Saving Box Profiles.

Cons: Would like to it speak in 'pirate' with each batch label printing! :) Audible: Arrrgh or Ahoy Matey! You've done done it! I reckon!

Overall: Dependable and fun postage platform with awesome batch label processing!

Absolutely fantastic, wish I'd found them sooner!

Pros: Pirate ship is amazing. It's super easy to use and intuitive which is a breath of fresh air after our last shipping program. Their rates are great and you can compare them without signing up at all. Their customer service, so far, has been really wonderful as well, they're super responsive and know what they're talking about. I honestly can't recommend them enough, especially if you're a Cratejoy merchant!

Cons: I'd love a better emailing system for customer notifications. I'm overall very happy and don't have a ton to complain about. They seem to be building/improving constantly too!

Overall: Better rates with a much easier to use platform!

Perfect for subscription box businesses!

Pros: The ease of everything! It's easy to get in contact with customer service - they use a chat widget so they answer right away (and they speak pirate to you). The ease of picking and choosing shipments for subscription business. The way they organize the shipment orders & how easy it is to refund a shipping label.

Cons: When you want to only choose specific people you can't type someones name in, choose it, and then repeat the process; it will not keep the first name selected (and so on).

Overall: The ease of printing labels every month and receiving an answer as soon as I had a question. I love pirate ship and would recommend it to anyone

Pros: It's super easy to use, they are completely transparent about how it works, it's free and the customer service is excellent. You know how you dread talking to customer service ? I actually look forward to talking to the folks at Pirate Ship because they respond right away and they talk like pirates !

Cons: I can't think of anything, to be honest. Every issue I've had in the past they seem to have fixed. Great product !

Pros: The ease of use and compatibility with the other softwares I use! Its just a few clicks to get my labels done and my fulfillment center particularly likes the sharable links to send them my labels!

Cons: I'd like to add a logo to the labels but since I've not asked their customer service about it, I'm not sure - it might be available.

Overall: I'm able to easily run my shipping labels at a great cost!

Pros: It's free! And they get way better USPS rates than we can get on our own. We've remodeled our fulfillment system to partner with Pirate Ship. Customer service is responsive and the developers are open to suggestions. We've even had a few of our wish list items added to the functionality.

Cons: Some integration weaknesses like communication of fulfilled orders between Pirate Ship and Shipstation. We still have to use Shipstation to record our shipment records but I'm sure they are working on improvements. Can't eliminate Shipstation quite yet though...

So easy!

Pros: Fast, simple to understand and best part.....So much cheaper then I used to ship! I love that its very user friendly, not much training was required and got my labels printed within seconds. Also love the fact that it is linked to my CrateJoy account so all my products get uploaded with the address and makes my life so much easier!

Cons: I honestly really dont like the logo just the idea of the skull kinda uncool. But that's the least of my problems! Everything seems to be working perfectly and not negatives that I can think of... when I do I will be sure to let you all know!

Overall: Cheap. Fast, easy to understand!

Pros: PirateShip integrates with both my website's shopping cart and Cratejoy's which allows me to print all my customers labels at once from a single system and attaches shipping info so customers can track their orders.

Cons: There isn't anything I don't like about PirateShip yet. It handles what I need it to handle without requiring me to spend time figuring things out and customer service gave me an immediate response the one time I had to contact them in setting up my account.

Pros: Pirate ship makes keeping track of my shipments easy! The integrate with multiple shop platforms so I can seamlessly import my labels as batches. I can save my most commonly used settings and can pull up addresses we've shipped to before with just a name or email address. They have the best pricing I've found and for a subscription box company that ships hundreds of boxes a month that savings add up quickly. Their customer service is EXCELLENT and they are continuously adding new features and functionality.

Cons: I can't think of a single downside to using Pirate Ship! It really is a superior program ran by awesome people truly interested in their customer experience.

Pros: The software perfectly integrates with our system making it easier to update our shipments, edit addresses, print labels, fulfill orders, and schedule tracking emails all without leaving their site.

Cons: So far, I think the program is great! As of now, I do not have any cons to share. But, because their customer support responds so quickly, if I do have any comments or feedback, I will be sure to reach out!

Pros: The software is very easy to use and gives you the best discount possible. Their support team is top notch, too, and is able to answer any questions I've ever had almost instantly. Their reports are easy to run and the entire package is as straightforward and intuitive as possible.

Cons: I've never had a problem with Pirate Ship. Their support is great and so is the software. I do wish you could print stamps through their software so that I could dump the other provider I use but, aside from that, they offer everything I need for my subscription box business.

Overall: The software is easier to use and honestly works better than any of the others I've tried. It's also free and gives you the best discount possible. On top of that, their support team is stellar!

Pros: It's free to use and integrates with Cratejoy and other platforms so orders are automatically uploaded from my platform. It's easily searchable and filterable.

This service is great and provides the best shipping rates, hands down.

Pros: Pirate Ship offers cheaper pricing for USPS than the other software I have looked in to. Every month, I ship out in bulk, so cheap shipping is really helpful to my business.

Cons: I honestly cannot think of anything I do not like about this software other than sometimes I do get confused while navigating around, although that is probably a fault of my own.
