Getting Discounts with Shippo

Shippo offers discounted rates with USPS, UPS, and FedEx for domestic and international shipping and DHL Express for international shipments originating from the United States. These discounted rates are automatically activated in all Shippo accounts.

  • USPS — Domestic and international shipping from the United States.
  • DHL Express — International shipments originating in the United States.
  • UPS — Domestic and international shipping originating in the United States.
  • FedEx -  FedEx Ground Economy and FedEx International Connect Plus (FICP).

In this guide, we’ll cover how you can get the most value out of your Shippo account with the best discounts and some additional tips for finding the best shipping rates.


Applying discounts in your Shippo account

From inside the Carriers tab, you’ll have access to special UPS discounts, as well as add your own carrier accounts here. To access the Carriers Tab:

  • Click the Settings Icon from your Shippo Dashboard.
  • Click Carriers from the Navigation Panel on the left.



Shippo will automatically connect discounts (if available) to your carrier accounts once you’ve added them in the “Carriers” tab.


International Discounts

You can partner with Shippo to ship from anywhere in the world!

For shipping from points outside of the United States, you first need to connect your carrier account on the Carriers Page in Shippo.

Shippo does not provide any discounted carrier accounts for countries other than the United States. The rates you see listed in Shippo when using your own carrier account will be the rates you've negotiated directly with that carrier when you opened your account with them.

High-Volume Shippers

If you are shipping more than 10,000 shipments per month, we invite you to get in touch with our Enterprise Solutions Team to discuss pricing and shipping solutions specific to your brand.
