With new updates come more ways for ShippingEasy to help you scale your business, save money, and centralize your entire shipping process.

FedEx One Rate®

A simple, flat-rate service, offered by FedEx for packages that weigh under 50 pounds. Weight and measurement of packages is not needed to produce a label.

FedEx SmartPost®

For customers that used the preexisting FedEx SmartPost functionality in ShippingEasy, you know it is an efficient and cost-effective way of shipping lightweight packages to anywhere in the United States. This service uses a combination of FedEx and USPS to deliver lightweight packages quickly to the destination at a lower cost in 2-7 days.

If you don’t already have access to FedEx SmartPost®, an additional agreement with FedEx is required to ship packages via the SmartPost® services. This can be obtained by contacting your FedEx account manager.
