After incorporating Endicia’s shipping software into its platform, Etsy is now providing U.S.-based sellers with the ability to manage and print USPS® labels for domestic and international orders directly from Etsy’s marketplace. This streamlines the fulfillment process and eliminates the need to copy and paste shipping or tracking information outside of the Etsy platform. The solution also allows sellers to take advantage of discounted parcel insurance and money-saving options from USPS, such as Priority Mail Flat Rate® Boxes, as well as package tracking.
“Endicia software exists to make e-commerce shipping easier, so our partners and customers can focus on growing their businesses,” said Amine Khechfe, general manager and co-founder of Endicia. “Ensuring that sellers are able to quickly ship products is a critical part of the Etsy marketplace cycle.
