Shipping system ShipStation has added support for multichannel listing tool GeekSeller, which provides listing and inventory management features for Walmart marketplace and Jet.com.
"ShipStation has received many requests to integrate with Jet.com," says ShipStation's VP of Marketing, Robert Gilbreath. "GeekSeller is a great way to offer Jet.com sellers access to ShipStation's robust features and automations."

It provides customers the ability to manage inventory, edit products, and import items in bulk via CSV/XLS file, or directly from a shopping platform, as well as managing orders, returns and refunds. In addition, since Jet.com requires merchants to accept orders within 15 minutes of the order being placed, GeekSeller can automate the approval process of the orders.

ShipStation's features include a free Stamps.com USPS shipping account (worth $15.99 per month), which includes deeply discounted USPS rates; automation features that provide the least expensive shipping option based on type of product, weight and geography; order consolidation from multiple sales channels including Amazon, eBay and many more; batch printing of more than 500 shipping labels at once, even wirelessly, from a large variety of thermal or desktop (inkjet or laser) printers, from a Mac, PC, or mobile device.
