AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ShipStation, the world’s leading cloud-based e-commerce shipping solution, today announced a partnership with Coupang, one of the largest online retailers in South Korea. As the first U.S. shipping partner to integrate with Coupang, ShipStation’s U.S.-based merchants will now be able to efficiently ship and sell products with one of the top marketplaces in Asia.

“We are delighted that this international partnership connects our merchants with the tools they need to enter the fast-growing South Korean e-commerce market,” said Robert Gilbreath, General Manager of ShipStation. “South Korea is a powerhouse when it comes to online sales, and we’ve seen consumers embracing more cross-border purchases in recent years.

Coupang predicts that South Korea is poised to become the third-largest e-commerce opportunity in the world in the coming years.
