Here’s what Elena - the Senior Product Manager at Kickstarter has to say about Easyship:
“Easyship is a shipping platform that greatly simplifies the process of managing and coordinating shipping anywhere in the world.
Anyone who has run a Kickstarter project knows how complex shipping can be. Plus, the cost of shipping can require up to 20% of a campaign's budget. Easyship offers access to discounted shipping rates, as well as tools that help you budget for shipping, compare courier rates, calculate tax and duty costs, automatically prepare customs paperwork, create labels, send tracking information to backers, and track shipments—all through a single dashboard.”
Did you know? Kickstarter recently reached a huge $7 billion in pledges to Kickstarter projects, which has helped bring many projects to life and quite literally made dreams come true.
