    No stars, going on 5 days with no support, terrible customer service and continual crashes. We can’t just wait five days and not ship things,

    Meh, savings are greatly exaggerated. I save about 10% on flat rate boxes which is nice but the last 3 packages I went to ship that were larger were significantly more expensive through shippo. For example, I had a large 13 lb package, shippo’s cheapest shown price was $66 through USPS priority mail while through the USPS website it was only $46 for the same exact service and UPS was $34. No idea where Shippo gets their prices from, I will continue to use them for flat rate packages but nothing else.

      Nothing but unresolved issues since Shippo took over shipping from Canada Post with Ebay. Half the time transfer from Ebay to ship a sale doesn’t register. Went to change my address on my account and edit screen wouldn’t work. Had unsuccessful contact and suggestions to remedy this from their help crew. Finally cancelled account and attempted to start over only to find I can’t use my email address as it has been suspended by them to re-register. Sorry Ebay has picked them to service their clients. I’ll just stick with Canada Post web site postage from now on.

      It was a five star until this last week. Lack of support. Going on 7 days and issue is not resolved. Not sure if they are going thru changes or understaffed.

        I did like shippo. Until they decided to auto bill me a monthly amount of $10 for a subscription i did not set up for. Further more they have removed the Canada post discounts you may have had. That depends on the volume of shipping. For example I had a package 8 x 6 x 4 inches and 1lb. Cost to ship it within province with shippo was $12.18, is now $14 (No more Canada post discount!) Also for me to ship with Canada post direct off the website was only $11.18! So cheaper then shippo that ebay try to make you auto use. Best bet is to use pay pay/canada post or Freightcom.com Same package with freightcom was $9.90 and took 2 days with tracking. Last month I saved $460 on shipping not using shippo. GIVE UP ON THESE GREEDY PIGS AND MOVE ON TO BETTER THINGS! IT SAVES MONEY AND TIME NEVER USING SHIPPO. I ship 100 plus items a month so I do have a good idea on shipping and they are the worst. My other big issue is being charged over weight on packages that I check with Canada post and have Canada Post scale weights on! Currently in a battle with shippo about this and will be taking legal action soon.

        My main questions is if I ship small packages 1st class, do I get a tracking number with those packages?

        Hi Gary,

        If using USPS it doesn’t look like you’d receive a tracking number. This link may be a good resource for you. I hope that helps!
