Manage Payments & Subscription

How to access payment and subscription settings to change or cancel subscription, update billing, or fund balance.

The Payment & Subscription page allows you to manage your current ShipStation subscription plan, update your account payment details, add funds to your ShipStation balance, view past invoices, and download your monthly data archive.

You can make changes to your ShipStation subscription plan at any time. Please visit the ShipStation Pricing page for details about each subscription plan level.

Credit/Debit Card and PayPal Account Only

  • ShipStation accepts subscription payments by credit or debit card and PayPal account only. Payments by check or via bank transfer are currently not available payment methods.

  • If you have insufficient funds in your account when we bill your card we will attempt to charge the card again on the next business day.

Change Subscription Plan

You can change your subscription plan in ShipStation at any time, which you may need to do if your shipment volume increases or varies by season. Additionally, a change in your plan level allows you to adjust the number of users for your account.

You can upgrade for the long term, or just for a month.

Plan Downgrades Apply At Start of Next Billing Cycle

If You're Upgrading

Upgrade your plan at any time and those changes will apply immediately. Please note that the current month’s charges will be prorated based on the date of upgrade.

If You're Downgrading

Downgrade your plan at any time. Subscription periods are billed in advance, so the current 30-day cycle will continue to the end of the period when that plan level began. The plan downgrade will take effect for the next 30-day billing cycle.

For example, if you start at a Bronze plan but temporarily upgrade to Platinum for the season's rush, you can downgrade back to Bronze any time before the next billing cycle.

For the remainder of the current 30-day billing cycle, the Platinum plan services apply to your account. The Bronze plan will apply again at the start of the new billing cycle.

Cancel Subscription

The information below will tell you all you need to know to cancel your account.

If you have any funds in your Shipsurance or ShipStation Balance at the end of your billing cycle, ShipStation will automatically process a refund in the next 14 business days.

What Happens When I Cancel My Subscription?

When you cancel your ShipStation subscription, several things will happen.

Keep in mind, your subscription will be valid until the last day of your billing cycle, so you can continue to use ShipStation fully until that time.

After Your Subscription Ends

  • You will be able to log in to ShipStation, but only the Account > Payment & Subscription settings will be available to view (should you want to resubscribe).

    Account settings sidebar with Payment & Subscription option selected
  • Your free Stamps.com USPS postage account will be suspended.

  • You will not be able to run any reports from your ShipStation account. Be sure to run any reports you need while your subscription is still active.

Remaining Stamps.com Balance

If you have a stand-alone Stamps.com account connected to ShipStation and it still has a balance, please contact Stamps.com directly to request a refund.

Call (855) 860-7867 (Hours: M-F, 6am to 6pm PT) or email shippersupport@Stamps.com

Reinstate a Canceled ShipStation Account

If you have previously cancelled your account, you can reinstate by re-selecting or changing your subscription plan and updating your billing details.

If your account has been cancelled due to non-payment, ShipStation will allow you to log in but will only show you the Payment & Subscription page. Update your billing details to reinstate your account.

Your account will now be reactivated and you'll be able to access the rest of the app to start shipping again!

Your new billing period will start the day you reactivate your account.

Important

If you have a Stamps.com account associated with your ShipStation account, it will have reverted to a standard account when you cancelled your ShipStation subscription. Please contact Stamps.com when you reinstate your ShipStation account.
