In our ShippingEasy review, we compared it with Shipstation (One of the best shipping apps), you can clearly see where ShippingEasy shines and where it falls flat.

The free plan included in ShippingEasy is a great way to allow newcomers to test the service before committing to it. User-interface is simple for both apps and it’s easier to navigate for new users.

According to user ratings, ShippingEasy lacks a bit in customer support, but they are constantly trying to improve it and they also lack in terms of shipping partners when compared to Shipstation. However, that’s mainly because they are only focusing on the US market for now.

There’s one advantage that ShippingEasy holds over ShipStation in terms of customer support. That’s phone support.

ShippingEasy offers phone support to all their paid customers while ShipStation only offers phone support to Enterprise customers ($149 per month).
