Starshipit helps to empowers retailers and gives them the tools to solve common shipping challenges. The range of features and automations allow online retailers to scale without having to increase staff numbers. Some features include:

  • Shipping labels – Retailers can automatically generate shipping labels and print them directly to a thermal printer or download as a PDF – all at once, just a few, or one at a time.
  • Customs and shipping documentation can be electronically completed and submitted.
  • Rules engine – Using a rules engine, retailers can assign couriers to orders according to various parameters. This ensures that you are using the best courier for the job. For example, cheapest available rate, rural deliveries, dangerous goods etc.
  • Invalid addresses – Starshipit corrects invalid addresses using address lookup technology, reducing human error and ensuring customers receive their order on the first attempt, even if they input their address details incorrectly.
  • Branded tracking and shipping notifications – Post-purchase, retailers can send their customers branded tracking pages and email and SMS notifications at key stages of the delivery journey, keeping customers informed and reducing the number of enquiries their support teams have to manage.
  • Centralised dashboard – Starshipit gives retailers one platform where they can manage all orders and select the best courier.
  • Returns portal – Lets retailers set up a dedicated branded returns portal, relieving staff of a significant time administration task.


  • Stored consignment notes for quick tracking and reporting
  • Linear rates, accessed via the system
  • Multiple shipping options for every shipment
  • Intuitive user friendly interface
  • Multiple printing options – use either a regular or thermal printer
  • eCommerce integration – select orders with a single click to obtain all label information
  • Eco-bags derived from biopolymers and co-polymer; PBAT, corn starch, and PLA. None of GoSweetSpot’s products contain any conventional plastic whatsoever. 

Both are popular, both are competitive. The right one for you depends on your own businesses needs and preferences.
