How Stamps.com works with your Big Cartel account?

By using the Stamps.com integration, Big Cartel customers can automatically import orders and print multiple shipping labels for all USPS mail classes and UPS shipping services. Stamps.com’s Rate Advisor is a great tool to help you find the lowest rate and best delivery time across different carriers, preventing you from overpaying for shipping. Once you’ve printed your shipping label, the order status details such as the tracking number, shipping date and service are automatically posted to your Big Cartel account. Big Cartel customers also get access to merchant-branded tracking pages and email notifications, where you can incorporate your company name, logo and custom web links in the customer's order tracking emails.
