The Shipwire Blog/Shipwire V3 Application Launch

Shipwire V3 Application Launch

We are proud to announce the launch of the Shipwire V3 application

Many lucky merchants are already using (and loving) the new experience and the features that come with it. Shipwire accounts created after Nov. 4, 2014 are already operating on Shipwire V3, as are a handful of existing accounts belonging to merchants who were invaluable in testing the new application and providing us with feedback during its development.

We can’t wait to upgrade all our users’ accounts. The new tools accessible with Shipwire V3 were designed from the ground up with our customers in mind, and we’re eager to see them put to use!

In order to explain Shipwire V3, we’ve put together a quick video to help familiarize you with all the updates in under five minutes. Feel free to start here, or head over to our Resource Center and view our V3 Collection.
