Shipping solutions come part and parcel with owning and operating your own eCommerce store. There are many options available for eCommerce merchants. Two popular options for Kiwi Merchants are Starshipit and GoSweetSpot.



Starshipit has four plans to choose from, with unlimited channels and carriers across all plans. Choosing between plans depends primarily on how many shipments you need to send each month. Starshipit also features a 30-day free trial.
