Shipster has already integrated Peoplevox, Linnworks, Magento and all leading UK couriers, including the Royal Mail, with whom we have an official 3PI partnership.
In addition to our reputation in shipping, we build other custom software solutions and integrations, with the goal of meeting your business’ bespoke requirements and achieving your end-goal; whether that’s optimizing the speed of your operations, improving your customer’s experience, data handling or reducing costs.
We have built integrations with nearly 40 couriers and shipping rule engines that can automate much of the processing you might be doing manually now. Get in touch about your current software setup to find out how we can plug you into a preferred courier.
Connect your existing eCommerce business operations with your chosen marketplaces. We don’t only do shipping; we can connect you with your favourite selling platforms to help you accurately manage product listings, sales, shipments, stock availability, returns processing and anything else your software posses data for.
We don’t just draw the line at shipping and eCommerce software. We can integrate any software that is important to your business, including website payment gateways, CMS’, CRMs, marketing tools, office software solutions, warehousing and more. Just get in touch about a bespoke project and tell us what you want to achieve.
We will first have a broad conversation about the software you're currently using and what you need it to do. For new integrations, we'll make contact with any relevant third parties such as your couriers or chosen software and plan how the integration will work and fit into our scheduling. Following this, if you're happy with what we can achieve and prepared to flesh out the details, we'll put a functional spec and quote together for you to review. The project will be project managed by our Director of Client Services Damian, who will keep you in the loop with our progress and let you know if we need anything from you.
No. We are open to all integration projects and have completed many bespoke projects for e-commerce websites, entertainment, memberships, bookings and more. Once we’ve scoped out what your requirements are from your software, we will set ourselves the task of working out how we can make it work most effectively, give you our assessment and draw up a functional spec that ticks all of your boxes. If we can’t make something work we will tell you. We take pride in delivering good work, not sales pitches.
Exact prices for shipping via Shipster with one or more couriers on multiple PCs can be found on our Shipster Pricing Calculator. For other bespoke software integration projects, we will need to quote on a case-by-case basis.
We are located in Manchester City Centre’s Northern Quarter near Piccadilly train station. We’re more than happy to arrange a call to discuss the scope of your project and offer some advice. Should you choose to meet up after this initial call we’d be more than happy to visit your place of work and see how you operate; this has proved very helpful to e-commerce businesses with a complex warehouse setup.
We work very closely with Peoplevox who offer some of the slickest Warehouse Management Software on the market on both web and mobile. This is good news for businesses looking to upgrade their warehouse all in one big project, or if you’re already a Peoplevox customer. Our integrations with Peoplevox are tried and tested and have been ticking along smoothly for years, allowing you to manage inventory from the point of collection, pick, pack and despatch.
We’re always adding more couriers and platform integrations to Shipster, meaning more options and quicker setup for our customers. We are always consistently reviewing and updating our software which means better security, optimization and ease of use. All existing customers can sign-up for our newsletter to hear about the latest software updates, new features and integrations.
We like to be as transparent as possible when it comes to pricing. When it comes to carrier integrations, we do not use the usual industry price-per-label model; we charge a fixed licence fee per month, meaning you can better forecast your shipping costs and plan when you want to temporarily change your setup for seasonal sales peaks. To get an idea of pricing now, try experimenting with our pricing calculator by inputting your number of PCs and couriers. Quotes for custom projects beyond courier integrations will need to be quoted by us based on your requirements.
Our licence fee includes our monthly support package which includes help by email, telephone (during work) hours and remote desktop for fixing problems in the warehouse live.
No warehouse is the same, which is why Shipster gives you the opportunity to invent and implement as many custom shipping rules as you need, and its all included with your licence fee. For any data you hold against an item, we can program in a rule for you for those items to ship exactly as you want e.g. All orders to France ship via Courier C and printed in french. You can see a huge collection of shipping rule examples here.

Liaising with Tony and the team on a regular basis is a pleasure. Tony is always more than happy help with any technical issues or any integration work that is required. The service and communication are brilliant. I would highly recommend Tony and his team at Oddsphere. They are a credit and pleasure to work with. Tony has helped on quite a few projects for MissPap over the past 7 months and each time he puts his full commitment to the cause. I can’t thank Tony and his team enough. Without their continued support, MissPap would not have been able to develop as quickly and successfully as it has.
Richard, Operations Manager
The support from Oddsphere for Shipster is second to none. During the implementation of our new warehouse management system including despatch, Shipster was the best-supported element. The service integrates well into all of our carriers and saves a huge amount of time compared to manual entry. The pricing structure of Shipster means the more we send, the more we save which works well for us as a small to medium size business user. Once it’s set up ongoing costs are minimal instead of being tied to a price per parcel. Overall very happy with the service we have received so far.
Gareth O'Rourke, Head of E-Commerce
We have been using Shipster for 18 months and it has literally transformed our warehouse department. We have managed to fully integrate with our three main couriers and significantly improve the speed, efficiency and accuracy at which the warehouse team are able to push parcels out of the building. We have managed to do this with the same number in our despatch team as what we had 18 months ago, even though parcel volumes have gone from 70,000 to 120,000 parcels.

"I’ll take the opportunity now to thank you for the OddSphere service; we’ve had very little interaction with OddSphere – aside from the initial set up – but that’s entirely down to it having worked flawlessly. So thank you."
Mike Crowley, Operation Manager
Shipster and team have been brilliant in helping to set up a new shipping system and now maintaining it. The biggest win for me is they are just a call away. They took all the stress away when Royal Mail dropped their DMO system by setting up a new API. The only thing I had to do was forward an E-mail onto Shipster. The system is reliable, fixable and robust, just what you need in this fast pace, ever changing business of Ecommerce.

"I know I've said it before, but just wanted to say again how impressed I am with your team of folks, they have been nothing but professional at every stage."
Daniel Mitchell, Operations Manager
Shipster for us was like a breath of fresh air with regards to our old system. From the first initial onboarding meeting with Shipster, we could tell they were going to be a company that we could rely on to support our business growth. I have found that no request is too big or small, I have found the team at Shipster are always available which in comparison to our old system is a blessing.
