What is ShipperHQ?

We sat down with Quentin who has been with ShipperHQ for over four years now. ShipperHQ is the leading storefront shipping management solution for eCommerce. Their suite of customizable shipping tools help merchants get accurate rates, set up shipping discounts and promotions and use shipping as a differentiator from competitors. ShipperHQ’s features include everything a retailer needs to manage their complex shipping logic and creates a better experience for buyers in the cart and checkout. This includes dimensional rating, multi-warehouse shipping, address validation and more. They also have a robust date and time feature. For example, merchants like Penn State Creamery use it to control their perishable shipping needs and offer a calendar selection for specific delivery or in-store pickup dates.
