I have a free Starter account - why should I upgrade to the Basic plan?

Created:   |   Updated:

We created our free Starter Plan to help you get started shipping online. Once you have your stores configured and the orders start rolling in, you need a plan that can grow with you. That's why we've created great plans to upgrade to!

Here are some great reasons to upgrade to our Basic plan:

Greater discounts on USPS Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express rates:

Your Endicia account will be upgraded from Commercial Base Pricing (CBP) to Commercial Plus Pricing (CPP). What does that mean? Average of 50 to 60 cents less per label printed. Learn more.

Hardware integration: 

Do you use a USB scale or print to multiple printers? ConnectEasy lets you integrate all your hardware for seamless workflows. Learn more.

Shipping Reports:

Need a break down of how much you're spending? Where you ship to most often? Spreadsheets of data ready to easily export? Upgrading to the basic plan provides metrics that allow you to keep on top of financials when it comes to shipping costs and breakdowns. Learn more.

USPS SCAN forms:

If your mail carrier ever mentions an easy to scan one-pager that will consolidated all picked up packages to one sheet - this is what they're talking about. Learn more.

Integrate more stores:

Sell on multiple platforms?  No problem!  Integrate each store for automatic order downloads and store updates. Learn more.

CSV order uploads:

Sell on a platform that doesn't ingrate with ShippingEasy?  It's even easier to import these orders into ShippingEasy with tools to upload CSV files with all your orders for the day. Learn more.

Multiple users:

Is your shipping department growing and you're no longer a one-man show?  Register multiple users to your account and track their shipments individuals or set unique hardware settings per user.

Dedicated support - email, live chat, and phone:

We know shipping isn't always easy- that's why we strive to make it so. Any time you have a simple question or need a walk-through, the Basic plan supports you through and through.
