Today we call ourselves a multichannel tool. However, back in 2015, GeekSeller was a tool that only supported Jet, and the first integration we developed was for ShipStation– for a while, the Jet and ShipStation integrations were the only ones we offered. A lot has changed since then, but not our relationship with ShipStation. Our companies cooperate in many ways, including participating in and sponsoring ShipStation events.
