Basin is an online marketplace where shoppers can discover and buy products from more than 1,500 brand partners. Shoppers can purchase products from Basin’s retail partners at a discount using cryptocurrency. Basin’s first major partner is Shopify, which hosts over 600,000 stores around the world. Shopify has also partnered with other major players in the industry including Amazon and eBay. The company has received $4.5 million in funding from firms like Bain Capital Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz. CEO Dan Schatt also raised $25 million in March 2018 to assist with scaling the company’s business operations.
A major benefit of integrating ShipStation and Basin is that they are both powered by Shopify. This means that there will be no need for additional setup or integration of data between them. This integration will allow users to fulfill their orders from the same platform where they create them. As of now, users have to set up an account with Shipstation to receive their orders, then manually access the Shopify API to fulfill their orders. With Shopify’s new partnership with Basin, it will be possible to integrate the two platforms in order to simplify the shipping process for online sellers. This will allow them to focus on building their business instead of worrying about manual processes invpved in shipping their orders.
Another important benefit of integrating ShipStation and Basin is that it will allow sellers to choose the best shipping method for each order depending on its size and destination. For example, if a customer ordered different items worth $10 each from a seller on Shopify Marketplace, it would not make sense to ship each item individually via USPS First Class Mail service under USPS rates. However, an individual shipping label printed through ShipStation for each item would cost more than shipping them through USPS Priority Mail service as a package (depending on shipping weight. This scenario illustrates how implementing automation into the shipping process can help sellers save money through better shipping management and contrp over their shipping costs.
In conclusion, integrating ShipStation and Basin will help ecommerce sellers save time on manual processes invpved in shipping their orders from the same platform where they create them. This integration will also help sellers save money on shipping costs by offering them better shipping options for each order depending on its size and destination.
