New York, NY - November 22, 2021 - Back Market, the world’s leading renewed electronics marketplace, and ShipStation, a world-leading web-based e-commerce shipping solution today announced a global partnership to make renewed technology more accessible and affordable. This strategic partnership gives Back Market third-party sellers an integrated, multi-channel order management solution enabling them to provide convenient and cost-effective shipping choices just in time for holiday shopping demands. It also enables ShipStation to expand its presence more rapidly outside the United States and help sellers scale their businesses worldwide.
“Our goal every day is to demonstrate to our customers that buying renewed devices is as good as - if not better than - buying new. Shipping time and cost are a big part of that equation,” said Lauren Benton, General Manager at Back Market. “Our ShipStation API integration enables our sellers to address these issues head on and gives them more ways to meet the expectations of today’s online shopper. With partnerships across all major selling channels, e-commerce platforms and carriers, ShipStation provides a streamlined way to optimize the shipping flow, which improves service levels and time to delivery metrics and ultimately increases customer satisfaction.”
“Back Market is the world’s leading marketplace for renewed devices with an extensive, global network of sellers including ITAD processors, electronics resellers and even manufacturers offering a wide range of high-quality, professionally refurbished products. With supply chain issues and sustainability concerns top of mind among consumers right now, Back Market provides a compelling alternative to buying new,” said Andrew Norman, Managing Director, ShipStation International. “We are proud to be partnering with a forward looking brand in an industry poised for high growth and impact.”
Under the terms of the partnership, ShipStation’s open API is integrated into Back Market’s infrastructure to provide a centralized shipping dashboard that lets Back Market sellers have access to a range of services and offerings from ShipStation. This integration will initially be available in the United States, France and the United Kingdom before being rolled out to other countries. Key benefits resulting from this partnership for Back Market sellers include:
- Streamlined and simplified shipping operations
- Access to more than 50 domestic & international carriers from a single user interface
- Support for multiple selling channels (marketplaces, shopping carts, tools, and carriers)
- Ability to process large volumes of daily orders (batch processing, custom hierarchical rules, shipping presets, automated customer emails, etc.)
- Cost efficiency by optimizing between carriers and access to package discounts
