EasyPost is a customizable API solution that gives eCommerce businesses more control and flexibility over their parcel shipping and logistics. The platform supports a huge variety of carriers, such as USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, OnTrac and scores of others. They also provide order fulfillment services for businesses of all sizes at an extra monthly cost.

Overview:

It’s important to note that EasyPost is strictly a shipping API, so they don’t have a user interface to buy postage online from a third-party postage provider. Users are able to purchase postage and track their orders like most other shipping software allows, but it requires a high level of coding and development knowledge. Therefore, EasyPost is best for super tech-savvy businesses and people building custom solutions. You can, however, use EasyPost with many third parties who already put a user interface around their powerful shipping engine, such as XPS Ship and Speed to Ship.

Potential customers should note that Easypost has also rolled out a new “Developer” plan, which allows for up to 10,000 free shipments per month with no markup. This high threshold allows new shippers to enjoy deep discounts on postage from multiple carriers without any additional charges as their eCommerce business gets started and grows.

For more information on why Easypost may be a good fit for your business, check out their overview brochure.

    I was charged over $200+ in fees for hacking attempts. Told Woo Commerce used 3rd party API’s that were not compatible with Easypost. I do not understand, but I guess these fees were API fees.

    Great API based solution for shipping and logistics. I can verify addresses, track packages, buy labels, and buy insurance which actually pays out. As a dev, I love it.

    I received a package in the mail from this Monthly Boxer as the sender. Opened it up and it had a note saying “Eat a Bag of Ducks” with a bunch of dick shaped candies. I don’t know anyone in Watertown NY. This is ridiculous and incredibly unprofessional. I believe one of your employees is doing this to mess with people. Please have a manager contact me.

    Dreadful service. My parcel was two days late. I had to stay home for the total of three days because the shipment required a signature, but then the driver said he didn’t need one. Worse, I got no response from GSO customer service until I had talked with SEVEN agents. The last one told me the district office in my home city wasn’t answering their calls, and no “delivery attempt” notices were ever put on my door DESPITE the company’s claim they had tried delivery three or four times. And why did they list Phoenix as a delivery location when the shipping address was Albuquerque?

    Big fan here. Their API allows you to print shipping labels from all the major carriers instead of integrating separately with each one. Most of the carriers’ APIs are too clunky, a coding nightmare even for experienced developers. With Easypost, you can use one API integration to connect with all of the carriers and bypass integrating with each one directly.

    Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a customizable API solution that lets your business print shipping labels/track packages/create return labels/etc. 1 cent per label is a small price to pay for the efficiency you enjoy from building one integration to connect with all the major carriers.
