Pros: - It's FREE!

- You get the same great postal discount the marketplace sites are hyping as their 'exclusive user rate' without being tied to their site's billing protocol.

- It IS, however, integrated with the big marketplaces, so you can import your orders directly from them to PirateShip to use PirateShip's labels.

- You get a dashboard on your home page that shows all your purchased labels, sorted by recency, and it includes the name, tracking number, delivery date and time.

- Site supports many printers as well as older Zebra thermals, like the popular LP-2488-Z.

- Customer support is fairly quick to respond via the Chat interface. (usually within 5 minutes).

- You can prepay in an increment that YOU select (and there are number to pick from) , or pay as you go for each shipping label. And you can check your balance anytime in the Reports section.

Cons: - Slight learning curve in how to use the site. I fumbled my first label by allowing PirateShip to use the specs that came from the Marketplace and the weight was incorrect. Now, I am more observant and watch the weight before I print the label.

- If you choose to import the customer data from Etsy, PirateShip will automatically send the tracking number back into the Etsy transaction so you don't have to. This is great - except when you make an error on the shipping label and need to cancel the label and buy a 2nd one; there is no way (at this time) to delete the incorrect label information from the 1st label. It might confuse the buyer on Etsy, and you may have to write an explanation to them if it does.

Overall: Etsy marketplace has changed their billing system to pay-as-you-go. I would rather prepay via Credit or Debit Card to earn rewards with my card. This was the impetus for finding PirateShip and it is suiting my needs very well on a daily basis.

I used to hate shipping labels now I love them, and save money while at it!

Pros: Easy of use like no other I have tried before it. It simply works, never crashes, always shows my orders as it should.

Cons: no support for FedEx, only USPS, which is fine as I mostly use USPS but it'll be nice not to have to use the overly chaotic FedEx website.

Overall: Ever since I started shipping with Pirate Ship I started saving money, by far, period. They have a variety of discounted rates not available through Ebay shipping labels. I can't believe how much money I literally threw away with Ebay labels. I have been using PS for about two years now and I remember only having an issue with an international label that for some reason didn't appear on my orders list, well I contacted PS and in minutes, literally minutes I had a real person (with eye patch and wooden leg I assume) in a chat window and informed me that Ebay was having some issues with International orders. Every time I have needed customer support they have been there for me. I always insure my shipments, I have only once had to make a claim because USPS was rough with my packages and the PS staff assisted me all the way through with the claim and it all got resolved to my satisfaction.

Pros: 1 -- FUN!! I smile every time I sign in!

2 -- Saved profiles -- it remembers your frequently used profiles to make one-off shipping simple!

3 -- Shows all options to find the best rate, applying Media discounts, and estimating times!

4 -- IMPORT Mapping -- that works! Although it doesn't do well with multi-tabbed worksheets, it imports single-tabs great, with an integrated field-mapping interface to make multi-order shipping so simple!

5 -- Automatic Per-Label Tracking! Their system, behind the scenes, polls USPS tracking data, so for your batch shipments you can see what % has been delivered, and where each individual package is! BRILLIANT, useful, and well thought out!

6 -- RUBBER Stamps! Labels can have custom "rubber stamps" (text) that prints on the label. We use this to help describe what goes in each package during our packing process.

7 -- Recipient Notification -- At a designated time, it'll automatically e-mail all the recipients to let them know a shipment is coming.. sweet!

Cons: - Would like to see support for multi-sheet excel workbooks.

- Would love to be able to print my own JPG/PNG logo in the return-address section

Overall: I absolutely adore Pirateship and what it offers. Everything is well thought-out, it has efficiently-producing features (intuitive import mapping, rubber stamps, per-label tracking, end-user notification), the business model makes it *FREE* for end-users to use.

What's not to like? I'm so thankful this company/product exists!!! YAY!

My parrot, Simon, agrees. (as he lifts his head high, and declares "I am a pirate... ARRRRRR!")

Pros: I love the SAVINGS, especially with Cubic Rate Priority Mail, which has saved me about $2 on every shipment that qualifies. This is the only software that passes these awesome savings on to us -- woo hoo!

I also love that the response time is super quick if I submit a question. Great customer service!

Cons: Only thing that could be better is automatically importing ebay's Global Shipping Program sales. I don't have a whole bunch of them, and there is an easy workaround by doing a manual label and just copying the address (GSP always goes to Kentucky).

Overall: I am a relatively small ebay seller, but ever since another seller told me about Pirate Ship, I have done ALL of my shipping here. Integration with my ebay account was easy, and the labels even look better than when I used to print from ebay (no dotted lines to trim away and no annoying promotional message that ebay likes to tack on). I really appreciate the savings I get with the Cubic Rate Priority--- that alone is worth using it. Overall, a fun and easy site to use and savings are AWESOME!

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: It's free! It's easy! It's integrated with eBay and others and if it isn't, it's easy to paste in the info. Best of all, the priority rates are better, saving money is important when paying so much in fees to the seller platforms. AND their customer service rocks! You 'chat' with a real person and usually get an immediate response during the day or the next morning - that is gold. I've shared this program with everyone I know and they have done the same. It's that good! Thank you Pirate Ship!

Cons: There's nothing I don't like, however I will be happy when they do integrate with some of the other platforms.

Overall: Awesome. I do feel stupid sometimes when I ask a question when the answer is really obvious - but they put up with me! The one thing I highly recommend is that you really study the information on the cubic rates, if you don't you will be leaving money on the table.

Pros: If you're new to shipping in bulk, PirateShip makes it easy to figure everything out and find the best shipping prices possible. And their customer service is awesome! They're friendly, responsive and helpful.

Cons: I wish there was a way to create additional "users" for my account so I could limit the amount that employees with access can (accidentally) spend on shipping. But maybe this is an option and I haven't found it yet :)

Pros: This software is so easy to use & has saved my company so much money! I love how fast I can get rates for multiple orders & it even makes custom forms a breeze.

Cons: I only wish I could highlight and categorize different orders with tabs or folders or colors. I would love to organize my international orders vs. domestic as well. Also wish I could see if something was marked preorder although I know this is due to a shopify issue.

Overall: My shipping costs have not only gone down but my time printing labels has also gone down. I love being able to see all of my orders & their items in one place! I love the search & filter options. and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE CUSTOMER SERVICE! I have contacted them several times and they are always helpful, fast & friendly. I recommend pirate ship to every business I meet.

Pros: I like how easy it is to figure out. The ability to import your sales from eBay is a fantastic feature that requires only the click of a button! Creating a label is very straight forward; fill in the info and purchase the label. It's easy to choose between 3 size options when downloading the label. The rates are great and the "Quick Rate Quote" has been more than helpful in getting an estimate on how and where to ship to. The ability to use th "secret" Priority Mail Cubic (Commercial Pricing) alone is a reason alone to like PirateShip.

Cons: Only thing I can think of is perhaps the lack of personal customization of your front page (I would like to hide/show past labels made) and lack of a confirmation prior to clicking "Buy Label"

Overall: My overall experience has been great. I've used Pirate Ship to create labels for different selling platforms I use. I use it to provide free shipping on platforms where the lowest shipping option on the platform is more expensive than if using PirateShip. I contacted customer service once for help and they responded back very promptly and friendly. I recommend it to anyone looking to save money.

Pros: Easy to use, lowest USPS rates for little stores.

Cons: The database on the "SHIP" page is a little strange. It should default to latest orders or shipments but it does not. It can take several refreshes to get the orders in descending chronological order. Sometimes it displays correctly and sometimes it displays orders from the beginning of the year.

This is the most important page in Pirate Ship, I suppose it will be worked out in time. I used Endicia before and Endicia does this perfectly.

Overall: lowest USPS rates now with International postage.

Should have switched to Pirate Ship sooner!

Pros: Pirate Ship is so easy to use. I can't believe I wasted so much time waiting in line at the Post Office. Now I can print labels at my own convenience and drop them off at the Post Office (skipping all the lines). What's even better than that? The cost! On small packages, I save almost $1; on large ones about $4!! It adds up. I wished I started using Pirate Ship sooner. I've told my friends who ship regularly to switch too! You should too!

Cons: I wish that when I make multiple purchases in one day that it would be debited from my bank account once instead of all the small little debits.

Overall: SAY YES TO PIRATE SHIP! Don't delay!

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!

Pros: I am SO glad I finally found the perfect solution for my postage needs. I love that there is NO monthly cost, there is no required minimum postage prepayment amount, and I get the absolute lowest price on all of my postage needs.

Cons: I would like to see the ability to upload a csv file of my current address book of customers, so that they'd already be in the system.

Overall: I'm helping my downline team to get set up to save money on postage and ship from home, without having to invest in a monthly fee, without having to prepay for their postage and being able to get the best price no matter what it is they're shipping.

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...

Pros: I really love the rubber stamps on the labels. This has helped me immensely and have not sent out any incorrect packages since I have started using pirate ship.

Cons: The only thing that I don't like about it is the inability to just go back and make a correction on a package before printing. Usually, I have to cancel the label first then go back.

Overall: I really love pirate ship. It has saved me money and time.

Pros: LOTS: 1) I can connect multiple online shops in one account and it automatically posts the tracking info back to the shop (i.e. ebay, shopify, etc), 2) I can print various shipments all at once (hooray for this recent update!!), 3) Customer service is super responsive and friendly, 4) The developers are always improving the software, 5) Last but not least, it's free!

Cons: Before today, my least favorite thing was the fact that I couldn't print multiple labels for varied packages at one time... but they've just released an update making this possible. Now my only minor complaint is having to go through their print dialog and then through Chrome's (or other browser's) print dialog before printing... Would be nice to have that just be one step to save on mouse clicks and time. Again, this is minor now that the option to print multiple labels at once is available!

Pros: Everything! I have tried stamps.com, USPS, and PayPal shipping so I have tried others over the years. I love pirate ship the best because it easily syncs my Shopify orders and It does most all the work for mine. I also love that it charges as I go so I do not have to keep adding money to an account. Customer service is great if you need anything as well. Oh and don't forget they get you the cheapest rates out there so you will save.

Cons: If I would say there was a con it would be that it makes me open a separate page to print the label but it's not really a con to me at all just an extra step, I wouldn't say there are any "cons" with this app.

Pros: The software is SO simple to use and took only moments to set up. The really great thing is I can import my orders from Etsy, click on the order to print the label, and then the software automatically adds the tracking number to the order!! It may not sound like a big deal but it saves me a lot of time and I don't have to worry if I entered the tracking number incorrectly.

Cons: There is nothing I do not like. It just works and works well.

Overall: I have a small Etsy shop and offer my buyers free shipping. But USPS has been getting more and more expensive. And then I found Pirate Ship and wow!! The savings are incredible!! It's also a huge time saver by printing my labels at home and just dropping my orders in a post box and being able to import my orders is fantastic. Do not even hesitate to try this yourself!

Outstanding and extraordinary! That's my experience from day 1 with Pirate Ship.

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 so easy caveman cou-, you get where I'm going with this. It's so easy and so detailed. My first ever printing and shipping labels from home. The hardest part you might ask? Which scale I wanted to buy from amazon. Other than that, I've mailed off 1k worth of merch with no issues ever. I can see a detailed list of shipments and export the documents for filing purposes. They allow you to create email templates to send with all the provided information such as delivery addresss, tracking number, custom message in email, etc. I love it!!!! Proud to be a first mate. (Had to thrown in a pun lol) Seriosuly love these guys and I couldn't see myself using anything else.

Cons: Listen.

I need you to listen.

You ready?

Not a d*%# thing. Nothing is wrong with this software. I never leave reviews. Cuz I'm the guy who reads em like you're doing. Zero issues. Zero!!!!

Overall: My experience has exceeded my expectations and forced me to walk in the USPS with my head held high, skip the line, drop off my package, like I've been doing it my whole life. I've only been doing it for 2 weeks lol

Love it!!!

Cons: Card transaction limits, and a little slow at times. wish we could do bulk printing easier for multiple different labels.

Overall: i love it. It does take some time but totally worth it compared to the postal costs.

Pros: Pirate Ship is invaluable with my business, Culinarie Kit--a cooking gift box company with a subscription option. The platform is incredibly easy to use and any issues I've had have been met with an immediate response from their CS team. Really nice people, too!

Cons: I'd like to be able to separate integrations by platform (e.g. import only Etsy orders, or only Cratejoy orders, etc). But with my current shipping style it's really not a huge issue.

Overall: Discounted shipping and a platform that organizes all my shipments for me.

Pros: It's easy to get up to speed.

I like the whole pirate theme, it just adds a bit of a personal touch and makes me smile.

I like that if I am creating a single label rather than importing, it gives me auto fill options for city and state once I put in the address.

I like that there are no extra fees.

I like that I can add money to the account so I don't have a plethora of small spending amounts on my bill.

Cons: In the future it would be great to have an address book to save regular customer's info.

Overall: Using Pirate Ship allows me to save money on shipping costs while also paying for the label with a credit card that gives me money back on purchases. Every little bit helps!

Pros: Pirate Ship integrates seamlessly with Etsy, which is what we use it for the most. On average we are able to save 5% on our USPS Priority and USPS Priority Express shipping costs with just a few extra clicks. It does not integrate with our website's cart software yet, but the user interface is quick and clean so it's just a matter of cut and paste to get the labels printed.

Cons: Billing is done in chunks of $50 or less, which means your money is tied up in intervals of $50 or more. For us that is a couple days of spend - not a big deal but may be for others.

Overall: They seem like a really cool company. We get e-mails from them in pirate-talk... Cute!

Vendor Response

by Pirate Ship on December 10, 2018

Ahoy John! Thank you so much for the kind review! I just wanted to point out that by default, Pirate Ship only charges you as you buy postage. You set a 'Minimum Payment Amount' on your account to reduce the number of payment transactions ;) this is totally optional.

The Crew at Pirate Ship are also extremely helpful and quick responding. I haven't had any issues since starting to use Pirate Ship and at this point I wouldn't use anything else!

Cons: When I started using Pirate Ship there were 2 features I felt it was missing, within the last few months both features have been added in, I can't say I have any cons to list, and it shows that the team is truly listening to us and constantly improving.

Overall: Arrrrrrrrrrmazing!

Pros: It's extremely easy to use and can sync up to import orders from all of the ecommerce platforms that I use. The priority rates are at a better discount than what eBay has baked into their platform which saves me money! It's also very easy to create a scan form making your mail carrier's life a breeze.

Cons: Info about the packages such as the weight do not import in from eBay. This would make it much faster to buy the lables.

Overall: I save money on shipping which is obviously fantastic. But also it's extremely easy to manage shipments on orders that come from different platforms all in one place.

I weigh the boxes at home, enter the information into the Pirate Ship software, and voila! I print the labels, drop them off at the po, with no waiting in line. I love the delivery / tracking feature as well. I know exactly when my customers receive their orders.

Cons: -It wasn't seamless in learning everything - I guess that's a con? - but they make up for that with all the support they offer. So a very slight con I guess.

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

Cons: Two things, you have to download each individual label. I had an old Dymo label printer that did 2 x 7 shipping labels and this site only will create 4 x 6 labels. Bought the Rollo printer (was recommended), didn't care for the amount of space it takes. Looking for a used Dymo now.

Overall: Love it!

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: Yes Pirate Ship does save you money. Easy to work with my Etsy shop.

Cons: I wish it would tell me what item by name i'm buy a label for. I need to go to my etsy shop to see the orders address to see what item is be ordered. This is really no big deal. This is not a deal breaker for me.

Overall: So far so good. I have saved about 30 cents per order. Doesn't seem like a lot but it will add up.

Cons: I have not found any issues with the service to this point.

Overall: Pirate Ship has saved me tons of money and time. I would recommend this software and service to anyone that does regular shipping to reduce overhead costs and increase time management.

By me saving money on shipping I can return that profit back into other products and services. If you don't get this service then you just like throwing money and time away. Please send it my way, because I never seem to have enough. Pirate Ship has helped me with both for sure.

Plus being retired Navy it is just a cool name.

Pros: Having used a few different shipping services over the past year . I love that there is no monthly or recurring fees . And I don't need to keep a balance in order to use the system . Some months I don't need $25 in shipping and other month I need $150 in shipping . I don't like my money tied up when I can use it for other business expenses.

Cons: I often have multiple orders of different sizes. I wish that I could upload a spreadsheet and specificy what size I need for the different shipments.

Overall: I have been highly recommending this service throughout my industry and among my small business friends, because I like them!

Pros: I've done my due diligence and 'trialed' the others -- I kept returning back to Pirate Ship due to its ease and cheaper prices. It did not overwhelm me with an extravagant list of options and features, it just simply did its job and allowed me what I needed to get the job now. I'm truly a fan of Pirate Ship. Thank guys!

Cons: I wish there was some way to further organize and categorize the labels created (i.e., rename, etc.) I like to keep my work area clean and tidy, both physically and digitally. Often times I need to dig through my batch labels to find a specific one I need.
