coolblueweb is excited to share that we’re now partnering with ShipStation to offer our clients a more comprehensive range of shipping options.
“Our clients have been telling us great things about ShipStation for years.”
– Jonathan Martin, coolblueweb President and Founder
In Spring 2017, one of our clients, an eCommerce business owner who sells bath and wellness related products, decided that the WooCommerce platform would be a better fit for their needs than their current Magento platform. However, they were very attached to one integration in particular and didn’t want to lose the functionality it provided. Matt, one of the expert developers on our team, was able to deliver the good news that the client’s favored integration, ShipStation, was also available for the WooCommerce platform. The development time required to get ShipStation running on Woo was minimal and the client was excited to find all the same features were available after their platform switch.
“With the ShipStation integration plugin, it was a snap to transition our client from Magento to Woo.” – Matt Mattice, coolblueweb developer.

We’ve known ShipStation is a favorite with our clients for a while. Shipping is one of the most challenging and confusing aspects of the eCommerce universe for business owners to master.

Who can Benefit from ShipStation?
If shipping and fulfillment is a large part of your online business, then it’s worth taking a look at ShipStation to see if they can simplify the process for you. It’s a great solution for store owners who ship internationally, want to offer a variety of shipping methods, want the flexibility to make adjustments to existing orders or desire a more automated, scalable shipping process.
Because we’re deeply focused on both Magento and WooCommerce at coolblueweb, ShipStation is an excellent solution for many of our clients. This partnership will increase accessibility for online entrepreneurs to cost effectively manage their shipping processes and resources.
Discussions about a potential partnership between ShipStation and coolblueweb began on April 20th, 2017. Russell Griffin, the Senior Director of Channels at ShipStation, and Solutions Architect, Joshua Burdick, also visited the coolblueweb offices in May 2017 to speak with the development team, offering insights into the full breadth of the integration. Because our team is experienced installing the software on multiple platforms, and because of coolblueweb’s unique business model and support offers, we’re able to help with all aspects of installation, as well as ongoing support options to complement its use.
