Bring Your Own Carrier Account | Overview

ShippingEasy’s Bring Your Own Carrier Account is an add-on that allows you to connect carriers that you have existing accounts with to use your own negotiated rates. Eligible ShippingEasy subscriptions plans can enable the Bring Your Own Carrier Account add-on to ship using your existing carrier accounts for a monthly fee.

All ShippingEasy plans come with free One Balance carrier accounts that offer Commercial pricing discounts beyond standard shipping rates.

Bring Your Own Carriers Add-On Limited to Specific Plans

Bring Your Own Carriers is not available on the Legacy Starter plans. These plan types offer One Balance Carriers for discounted shipping rates.

ShippingEasy integrates directly with a variety of carriers, including some of the biggest worldwide carriers (like UPS, FedEx and DHL). Any negotiated rates you have with your carrier accounts will apply to these labels when created in ShippingEasy and are invoiced by the carrier the same way they would be if you purchased labels from their online platforms. There is no limit to how many carriers you can connect with Bring Your Own Carriers.

Bring You Own Carrier Pricing

For all eligible subscription plans you must enable the Bring Your Own Carriers add-on if you would like to connect and use your own carrier accounts. This adds a monthly fee ranging from $5/mo to $80/mo (cost varies by plan) to your monthly subscription plan cost. Once enabled, you can create as many labels with Bring Your Own Carriers as you like within your plans shipment limit.
