With the release of BV Commerce 2015 SP2 we now provide full integration with ShipStation shipping software.

One of the most requested features for BV Commerce over the years was a better way to manage shipping. Specifically, printing shipping labels and then updating BV Commerce with the tracking number and shipping & order status. Out of the box BV Commerce provides label printing for UPS only, leaving the other real-time rate carriers that we support (i.e. FedEx, DHL and USPS) out in the cold. In addition, the UPS label printing cannot be done as a batch process. In other words, it's basic functionality that quickly breaks down as order volume climbs. Clearly a better solution was needed.

Rather than try to build this functionality into BV Commerce we set out to offer a simple, built-in integration with a great shipping solution from a company focused solely on shipping. We worked closely with two large-volume BV Commerce merchants during the evaluation and testing process. In the end ShipStation was the unanimous favorite and was selected for the following reasons:

  • Simple, easy-to-use interface
  • Prints labels for all major carriers natively without any third-party software
  • Ability to include return label in shipments
  • Aggregates multi-channel orders (e.g. multiple BVC stores, Amazon, eBay, etc)
  • Updates order status and tracking number information in BV Commerce
  • Web-based solution--easy setup with no IT support required, even for multi-user environments
  • Tons of integrations with other systems
  • Market position—ShipStation is a leader

ShipStation offers a free 30-day trial so you can see whether it can streamline your shipping process. To learn more about ShipStation visit
