First I started out of my house. Shipping flat rate Vos usps from the DC area.
Then I graduated to Shipbob and was lured in by the idea of multiple distribution centers and super fast and inexpensive shipments.
So they may have cheap regular mail but it was SLOW. Being closer didn't help.
Then I had to upgrade to 2 day shipping and the price went through the roof. Like $25 instead of $4. It was nuts. Don't be fooled for their bait and switch. They pitch ultra fast but show you the ultra slow rates.
Anyhow I moved to Shipsalot. Now I can consolidate inventory (also good for taxes since you only pay taxes to buyers in the same state of the warehouse).
And the FedEx is super cheap because they are next door to the hub. So it really became a no brainer.
And they have plug in options for overnight.

We're very glad to work with Ships a lot! They're all very helpful. All of our orders get shipped out promptly. Zach and the team has a very quick response time, showing that they really care about their clients. We had a bad experience with a fulfillment company previously, leaving us nervous about working with another company but upon seeing how Zach and the team operate their business our fears went away. We can't imagine conducting our business any other way now. We'd recommend Ships a lot strongly!

Very helpful. Great business. They helped me get my business off the ground in the very frustrating category of fulfillment. Zach has been able to attend to every need literally 24/7.

We are so glad to be working with ships a lot! They have made our transition to warehouse fulfilment so easy and have helped us out immediately with all our questions along the way. I would recommend them to any small business that is making the transition from fulfilling orders themselves to a fulfilment service.
Review by Vyshni2 years ago
These guys are awesome! I highly recommend using them. It took me about two years to decide to stop trying to fulfill stuff on my own. Finally, I made the jump to using Ships-A-Lot and they have been amazing. Not only is the shipping quick, fast and evidently scalable, but their customer service (Zach, mainly) has been top notch.
Review by Britflicks Hoppw2 years ago
I was strongly considering doing my own fulfillment because I couldn't find a fulfillment company that met my needs. I was really glad I talked to Zach. The price was really reasonable and I could tell these guys are real go-getters that will do what it takes to keep happy customers, so I went for it.
They made the onboarding super easy. My product arrived at their warehouse and they were shipping it within a very short amount of time. It's so nice to have them take care of everything.
I strongly recommend Ships-a-Lot for other Shopify owners.
Update: 1 year later and everything is still going great with Ships-A-Lot! They're very attentive to my needs.

Our partnership with Ships-a-lot has been nothing less then amazing thus far. Zach and Max keep in constant communication with us and go above and beyond to ensure our customers receive their order fulfilled accurately and quickly. The pricing model and customer service is setting a new standard for the fulfillment industry. We highly recommend working with Ships-a-lot.

I was initially interested in this company because it appeared in a list of featured vendors recommended on a site called fulfillmentcompanies.net, and the words "Shopify Partner" appeared beneath its logo (I have a Shopify store). Next I talked with the brother co-owners, Max and Zach Zitney, and was impressed by their clear communications and positive attitudes. I thought, "I want to work with these people!" So, I read their contract, liked it a lot better than Amazon's (whose contract includes their right to reproduce my graphics forever), signed up, and sent my merchandise to their new facility. Just as I had imagined, working with the Zitney brothers has been great. Zach is a great problem-solver, and really knows all about the fulfillment business. The cost of the service is reasonable. I am now free to focus my energy on the creation of new products and on publicizing my entire line. Thank you, Zach and Max.
Review by Charisma2 years ago
When out ecommerce company started expanding quicker than we could ship orders, we searched long and hard for a solution. We were extremely nervous about moving all of our inventory from Florida to a fulfillment center out of state, but Ships-a-Lot made it incredibly easy.
Zach and his team made sure to answer the many questions that we had about the transition and made things as seamless as possible for us and our customers. Our margin for error was fairly high when we were filling orders in my spare bedroom, but now things are flawless. We couldn't be happier!
There's also no hidden fees with Ships-a-Lot like we encountered with the quotes from other 3PL companies. You pay a flat fee here... no extra charges unloading your inventory or ridiculous charges for each additional item they pick. Some of our orders have upwards of 20 or 30 items in it, so it's nice to pay one fee whether they ship 1 item or 30.

I have been with Ships-a-lot for about 4 months now, and I have no complaints. They ship out my products fast and on time. And Zach responds to emails and phone calls within minutes. I also love the invoices they send, very simple and not complicated.

I have spent months trying to integrate our Shopify storefront to an international fulfillment vendor and have finally found a wonderful solution with Ships-a-Lot. Within one day of receiving my initial stock they had fulfilled all of my backlog. The integration with Shopify is seamless and I can now support my Canadian customers. Great solution!
Review by BTalbott2 years ago
The team at Ships-A-Lot have been nothing but helpful and professional in our time working with them. If you're looking for a 3PL that delivers professional service that is quick and efficient, along with low prices that can't be beat, then Ships-A-Lot should be at the very top of your list.
Review by Justaskivvy Gabadise2 years ago
I found out about Ships-A-Lot in my Shopify FB group. We were getting ready to do a preorder for a new product and were not logistically setup to handle all the orders. Ships-A-Lot has been a lifesaver. What makes me so comfortable about using them is that the owners are entrepreneurs themselves and know the ins-and-outs of ecommerce. They understand first-hand how important customer shipping is. What separates them, though, from other companies is their customer service. I can't say enough about how much Zach helped us with the on-boarding process. More than that, he answered every single question I had in a timely manner. I never felt like I was bothering him with all my questions. I have no hesitation in recommending Ships-A-Lot to anyone looking for an A+ fulfillment service.
