Ships-a-Lot was born from ecommerce entrepreneurs who needed a solution for their own ecommerce store, but couldn’t find one. During their search, they were not able to come across a company that was “next gen” in the order fulfillment industry. They needed a solution that connected directly to the Shopify platform, shipped products in real time and had an easy to understand pricing model. The combination of these things did not exist at the time, so they set out to create a solution that worked for them. Once they created a robust solution where thousands of orders could be shipped daily with high accuracy in real time, they decided that this service could be utilized by other Shopify stores. This is when Ships-a-Lot was born.
