ShipStation is an order management and shipping software company that is designed to help retailers become more efficient at processing, fulfilling and shipping their e-commerce orders. The Shipstation integration allows merchants to pull shipment cost into the Daasity order data models to calculate gross margin with shipment cost deducted. The integration also allows merchants to analyze pending orders aging to help with supply chain management. Finally, this integration provides merchants with a holistic view of existing shipping carriers distributions, and allows for comparison of shipping speed efficiency and shipping cost efficiency.

Proper analysis of the Shipstation dashboard can help answer the following questions:

  • Are there any specific products or specific regions with a large number of outstanding shipments?

  • How long after a customer places their order is that order shipping? Long times between order and ship dates can signal an issue with fulfillment.

  • Are any shipping carriers showing longer than expected transit times? This information can help you optimize your delivery times by routing shipments to specific carriers.
