Shipbob + Shopify
Why outsource Shopify shipping and fulfilment to ShipBob?
Connect your Shopify store to ShipBob’s fulfilment software in just a few steps.
Link your store with the click of a button, then import your products and orders in minutes (with order syncs in as fast as real-time after that). The backend work is already done for you, so it’s easy to get started without any developer work.
Automated order fulfilment
As soon as an order is placed on your Shopify store, it’s automatically pushed to ShipBob, where it’s picked, packed, and shipped from one of our 30+ fulfilment centres of your choice.
You can track the entire order fulfilment process in real-time from the ShipBob dashboard — from purchase and picking, through delivery and even returns.
The delivery experience is often the first in-person interaction a customer has with your brand, so we believe it should be a great one! What other touchpoint has a 100% open rate?
Build a memorable unboxing experience for your customers, whether you have us use your custom branded packaging and marketing inserts, print custom gift notes for orders, or carry out kitting projects.
2-day shipping and badging
ShipBob’s integrated technology and network of fulfilment centres enable 2-day shipping for qualified customers across the US.
ShipBob offers lower-cost 2-day shipping for all consumers in the continental US, even from just a single US fulfilment centre. With this ship option, you can also unlock real-time courier rates, 2-day shipping badges and estimated arrival dates that can be showcased on your product pages.
Real-time inventory management
Minimise overselling with real-time order and inventory quantity syncing to push live unit counts back to your store, and inventory thresholds to reserve inventory for safety buffers.
Track how much stock you have available at each ShipBob fulfilment centre and receive automatic notifications when you need to reorder inventory for your Shopify store.
ShipBob is a global fulfilment platform that supports thousands of Shopify brands with a network of 30+ fulfilment centres across the US, Canada, the UK, the EU, and Australia.

Business Operations Manager at Ample Foods,
When ShipBob introduced a Prime-like badge showcasing 2-day shipping on product pages, we immediately saw a 230% increase in customers using 2-day shipping! Because of the badge, customers know how fast they can get a product — even before they add it to their cart — and we love that.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Shopify provide shipping?
Shopify offers a few built-in shipping options, including Shopify Shipping. So why choose a third-party option? It’s simple: As the leading fulfilment provider for Shopify stores, ShipBob’s bread-and-butter is just that — order fulfilment. Shopify Shipping requires you to ship out orders from your post office of choice, can require a lot of manual backend work, and can be difficult to scale as your business grows. ShipBob is built to integrate seamlessly, automate your fulfilment, and scale with your business — no post office visits needed.
How do I offer free shipping on Shopify?
ShipBob can help you offer free shipping on your Shopify store without breaking the bank. You can require a minimum spend threshold for free shipping that’s greater than your average order value (AOV) — a strategy that led ShipBob customer iloveplum to a 97% increase in AOV on their Shopify store, as well as bundling products, using free shipping calculators or a progress bar showing the amount of money a customer needs to spend to qualify for free shipping, and of course promoting free shipping offers on your website banner.
Does Shopify provide shipping labels?
With Shopify Shipping, you’ll need to purchase shipping labels for each order through Shopify, then print and attach labels to each package. With ShipBob, we can not only store your inventory but shipping labels are automatically generated as soon as an order is placed on your Shopify store — then we’ll pick, pack, and ship the order for you. No printer necessary.
Does Shopify calculate shipping?
Shopify Shipping offers a real-time shipping app that calculates accurate shipping costs to display to your customers at checkout. It’s done automatically for any product and is based on the customer’s location and delivery preferences.
