Selecting Subscription Plans

Shippo offers two different Subscription Plans:

  • Professional (Pro) Plan for customers who want to streamline and grow their business

You can compare the features of all Shippo Plans here: Comparing Shippo Plans.

Shippo's Pro Plan

Pro Plan 30-day Free Trial

All Shippo customers start off on the free Starter Plan and pay only the cost of postage plus a five-cent per label transaction fee.

All Shippo customers can try out the Pro Plan for free on the 30-day free trial. If you find it's not the right plan for your business, simply downgrade before the end of the 30 days when the subscription fee is charged.

 

Sign-up for the Pro Plan

1. Sign-up for the Pro Plan on the Plan Settings Page.

  • Click on Settings in the left navigation panel
  • Click Account
  • Click Plan along the top
  • Click Adjust Plan to the right

  • Click Start Free Trial

Note: The plan fee selected here is what you will be charged at the end of the 30-day free trial if you have not downgraded to a Starter plan:

How do I know how long is left in my Free Trial?

The Plan Settings Page will show you exactly how many days are left in the trial right at the top, and it will also show the date on which your plan changes to the Pro Plan and what the charge will be.

What happens after the Free Trial?

On the date displayed on the Plan Settings Page, your account will be charged for the first subscription fee that you selected. 

  • Monthly: If you selected the $10 per month plan for up to 60 labels monthly, you would be charged $10, for example.
  • Annual: If you selected the $10 per month plan for up to 60 labels monthly but chose annual billing, you would be charged $108 (a 10% discount for paying a year in advance). No refunds are given if the plan is canceled prior to one year.

Does the Pro Plan fee include the cost of postage?

The Pro Plan fee does not include the cost of the postage (shipping rates). This fee replaces the five-cent per label fee on our Starter Plan and gives you access to advanced features such as personalized Company Branding, customized text on Email Notifications, and applied Company Branding added to the Packing Slips, Tracking Page, and Email Notifications. It also covers the cost of chat and phone support in addition to the standard email support.

 

When am I billed for the Pro Plan fee? 

Pro plan fees are billed at the beginning of each month (or the beginning of the plan year) to pre-pay for the upcoming plan cycle. A monthly payment on October 15th, for example, would pay for the Plan from October 15th through November 14th.

 

What happens if I buy more labels than my plan accounts for?

Shippo will still allow you to purchase shipping labels even if you've exceeded your plan amount before the next billing cycle. You will not be stopped from shipping.

However, on the first day of the next billing cycle, you will automatically be moved up to the next plan level. For example, if you were on the $10 per month for 60 labels plan, and you shipped 80 labels during the month, you would automatically be enrolled in the $25 per month for 61-200 labels plan at the billing of the next month.

 

Downgrade to the Starter Plan

If your shipping needs change and you no longer need to use the advanced features and do not need chat or phone support, you can definitely downgrade to the Starter Plan right on the Plan Settings Page.

  1. Click Adjust Plan
  2. Click Downgrade
  3. Click Yes, downgrade plan to Starter to confirm

Can I have a refund for subscription fees?

Shippo does not provide refunds, prorated or otherwise, if you downgrade or cancel your plan prior to the end of the billing cycle. Changes will take effect on the first day of the next billing cycle.
