The first step to getting started with ShipWorks is to set up your ShipWorks account so that you can take advantage of your 30-day free trial. Once your account is created you will be automatically prompted to download the ShipWorks software.
Ready? Let's get started.
Open your favorite web browser and go to www.shipworks.com.
Click on the Free Trial button.
When you click the Free Trial button, you are signing up for a trial of our $49 per month plan which includes 1,500 shipments per month.
Do you ship more than 1,500 shipments per month? Check out all of our plans on our pricing page and sign up for the trial that is right for your business.
Check the I'm not a robot checkbox. This screen may only be displayed if this is your first time visiting this page.
All fields are required.
Your password must be at least 6 characters long and include at least 1 letter and 1 number.
Leave the promo code as is. The code activates your free trial.
Be sure to keep track of the email address and password. You will use it when installing the ShipWorks software. You will also need it any time you wish to log on to The Hub or into your ShipWorks account.
Fill out your payment information and click the Submit button.
Set up your free USPS account. Select from the options to:
Create a free USPS account: Selecting this option will create a free Stamps.com account for you so that you can get up and running with processing USPS labels quickly and easily.
Use my existing Stamps.com account: Already have a Stamps.com account? Great! Select this option and you will add your account to the ShipWorks software a little later on. We'll even waive your monthly subscription fees for you.
I don't ship with USPS: No? If you ever do begin shipping with USPS we can help you get an account created later.
Click the Submit button to finish setting up your account. That's it! Your account has been created for you and you will be prompted to download the ShipWorks software.
You can log in to your ShipWorks account any time. Just visit shipworks.com and click on the Login button.
Now that you have your ShipWorks account set up, it is time to download and install the ShipWorks software. We have a video to help you with that process. You can also follow the detailed steps found below the video.
