StarShipIT, Sendle announce automation partnership

Rebecca Percasky, COO, StarShipIT and James Chin Moody, CEO and Co-founder, Sendle.

Small business parcel delivery service Sendle has teamed up with StarShipIT, a cloud based app created to automate and simplify the process of shipping orders, to give Australia’s e-commerce retailers access a simpler complete shipping solution, the duo say.

As of 30 March, StarShipIT’s customers running stores on e-commerce platforms such as Magento, Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, eBay and Etsy can opt to deliver through Sendle’s door-to-door delivery service, receiving a free upgrade to Sendle Premium, with national flat-rate pricing starting at $5.59.

Setting up an account and rate card with a shipping provider could previously take weeks to months. The Sendle-StarShipIT integration will enable online retailers to start shipping from their e-commerce platforms instantly and there are no minimum order quantities.

Unlike the post office which restricts maximum parcel weight to 22kg, Sendle delivers packages across the spectrum from 500g up to 25kg at an affordable national flat rate pricing and is 100 per cent carbon neutral.

Small businesses using Sendle can save time by automating fulfilment through StarShipIT, which automatically imports orders from all selling channels. Users can also batch print labels, invoices and pick-up slips and book a parcel pick up through StarShipIT.

Commenting on the partnership, Sendle CEO and Co-founder James Chin Moody said, “StarShipIT is a market leader in providing beautiful fulfilment solutions for eCommerce. Our integration gives Australia’s eCommerce community the ability to streamline the process from setup to shipping so they can focus on growing their business instead of sweating the small stuff.”

Rebecca Percasky, COO of StarShipIT, said, “I’m excited for what this partnership will offer Australian small businesses. A Sendle-StarShipIT integration has the potential to truly revolutionise their eCommerce fulfilment from check-out to the point of delivery and beyond.”
