Does ShipStation Calculate Shipping Cost?

Does ShipStation calculate shipping cost for all of your shipments?


Tyler Douglas

ShipStation does calculate shipping cost with its rate calculator feature. 

You can use the calculator to see the cost of the shipping service you’re currently using for a shipment and compare it to other available services. 

But ShipStation does not use the calculated cost to auto-select the cheapest rate for every shipment. 

But, you can integrate a platform called String into your ShipStation account to automatically calculate the full shipping cost of every order and auto-select the cheapest shipping rate.
