    It is a Monday morning, and I am attempting to ship 8 packages via the new app ShipStation THROUGH PAYPAL. The process is SOOOO SLOWWWW that I am going to go to the USPS site, and hand enter all the info there. It will be much faster. So far, I am averaging 12 MINUTES to ship ONE PACKAGE. I do not have 1-1/2 hours to hope the page loads for the next process. Very disappointed in this shipping app. 😡

    Their updates break features which are core to day-to-day operations. They do not jump on bugs with any kind of urgency, taking weeks to respond to tickets. Feature requests are ignored completely. Customer Service people are useless — every chat wastes hours of my time and ends up in a ticket which wastes weeks of my time. Rarely any solution at all. Stay away from this software.

    Absolutely terrible support.I pay $70/month and can never get anyone on the phone when I really need them.In fact, they have a recording the day after memorial day that tells you they have shut off the phone.I don’t call for minor issues.I left many voice mails and sent multiple emails to support and 10 hours later still no resolution, no return call. I have never been so disappointed because of such poor service.I have to get orders out and I can not get support.You should think twice before signing on.

    I have been using this for over a year and today was the last straw! 3 times this month they have had site issues. Today is Friday a big shipping day and I can not purchase labels for the past 2 hours! I instead had to purchase on another platform spending more money and wasting time. This is the 3rd time this month and most months there has been at least 1 time. To top it off, you can not reach anyone!

    Functionality is good, but don’t expect bugs to be fixed anytime soon. I waited for a year for my local zip code to be fixed so I would not be paying Zone 9 rates. I’ve been waiting two years so that I could sort by company in the Shipments area….very useful for a B2B company. They introduced a new user interface a month ago. I immediately reported a bug but it is still not fixed. If you report something the customer service people will tell you to enter it into the “wish list”, where your suggestion will reside without action for years. They spend a lot of money on advertising but clearly they do not care about the quality of the product.

    I’ve used this service for several years with many “Invalid Token” errors that have never been resolved but in the last month, no orders have been imported from Big Commerce into ShipStation, forcing me to do a work around to ship. What a pain!Customer support is non existent, no phone support like other good companies. Emails offer NO help except to say they are working on the problem and thank you for my patience. I’ve run out of patience and will be going to another provider. They did refund one month for me. That was nice!
