Overview

ID530 is our UPS integration with eAutomate and ID531 is Fedex. We have been searching for a solution for address correction where we see clients paying hundreds of dollars in address correction fees each month (https://hub.ceojuice.com/blog/shipping-incorrect-address-charges). This is an integration with ShipStation (shipstation.com).

ShipStation has address correction built-in and we can write the corrected address back to eAuto along with tracking, etc. We will report what ShipStation is saving you each month on their lower rates plus show avoided address correct charges. 

Note that we also have an integration with OnShip ID34. OnShip allows you to ship via SpeeDee and ShipStation does not, however ShipStation has advanced label options. Both integration are designed to allow you to easily switch back to UPS WorldShip (or Fedex).

ShipStation allows customized color labels (if using color printer) and custom configuration (label only, remarks , actual item descriptions , barcodes , your logo, etc) to print the shipping label as well as the packing slip on 1 label (top part is shipping label…bottom is packing slip ) reducing the print pages and helping assure accuracy . it has a tracking portal that can be branded as well for each client so when their customer click in the tracking link, they go to a branded portal that displays progress of shipments.

As with all of our integrations, this is included in your monthly fee.
