Setting Up Your Account 

Now that you’ve decided Shippo is the platform for you, it’s time to set up your account! In this section, we’ll cover the basics of setting up your account.



You’ll find the initial sign up option at the top right corner of the page of any Shippo web page.

From there, you’ll enter your information and get started!




After signing in for the first time, you’ll be prompted to enter your company information, including your current store platform, your primary preferred carrier, and average monthly shipment volume.



You’ll be prompted to connect your store platform during final setup, so don’t worry about remembering your store’s login information at this step.

Pro Tip: When calculating your monthly shipment volume, we recommend providing an average between your highest and lowest volume months. We use this number to ensure you get the best rates!

After entering your company details, you’ll be prompted to enter your shipping address. This address will remain your default address but can be updated under the settings tab.


And that’s it! The initial setup process is complete.

Before we get started with your first label, let’s make sure to update your account information. We’ll do that in the next section!
