ConnectShip | iShip strives to offer a broad range of logistics solutions that are as varied as the complex needs of our customers and network. To meet industry demands, we find it can be a huge plus to collaborate with companies that have a reputation as leaders in their area of expertise. In our endeavor to offer customers more choices, a ConnectShip | iShip - Pitney Bowes partnership was formed.

We chose to partner with Pitney Bowes to add a new channel to access USPS rates and services, as well as USPS technologies not available to merchants otherwise. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Purchase Power®: a line of credit that allows you to pay for postage, shipping, and supplies through a single account.
    • Under Purchase Power, Pitney Bowes pays the USPS® and other non-USPS carriers on behalf of their clients, uniquely allowing merchants to consolidate their shipping postage charges into one monthly invoice with flexible payment terms.
    • This puts the power in the hands of merchants to extend payment timelines, eliminate fees, and open up funds they would have been pre-paying for shipping postage.
  • Merchant portal: a robust shipper postage management and transaction reporting tool.
