Planet Express Review: Everything You Need to Know

Is Planet Express legit? Quite a common question, I’d say. And understandably so, because Planet Express is a young company in the goods and mail forwarding space. At the time of writing this Planet Express review, it had barely earned two candles on its birthday cake.

Admittedly, the good thing with startups, as you probably know by now, is the aggression they come with. And Planet Express managed to hit the ground running with arguably the lowest rates in the market, combined with flexible services. That alone aroused my interest and I decided to give it a try.

So, after my experience, I can report that yes- Planet Express is indeed a legit package and mail forwarding company based in the US. It essentially receives stuff on behalf of international shoppers, before shipping them to their rightful buyers anywhere in the world. Additionally, it offers order fulfillment handling for dropshippers and typical ecommerce merchants.

Product Inventory Information Shopify App Review

Product inventory information might not be exactly what comes to mind when you try to think about important features missing on Shopify. But, here’s the thing- it gets worse.  For quite some time, I also believed that Shopify had everything that a typical online entrepreneur would ever need. Because, let’s be honest- if a specific functionality is not included in the default package, you can always find it in one of the Shopify App Store apps.

Well, that was until I met a merchant who happened to own multiple stores in different locations. Then I learned about something that many people, including Shopify’s developers, have always overlooked- the importance of an ecommerce ecosystem that’s capable of streamlining inventory information control across multiple locations, both online and offline. And that’s basically why the much-needed Product Inventory Information Shopify app came into being.

The Ultimate Blubolt Ecommerce Review

Before we dive deep into the blubolt review, I  must admit that we've sampled a wide range of ecommerce platforms. On the other hand, we’ve also tried out numerous managed hosting services for online stores.

Normally, we’ve always considered these two as separate solutions on opposite ends of the spectrum- each with its own exclusive set of specialized providers, dealing with a specific type of users.

Rarely have we stumbled upon providers who’ve combined both solutions on a single framework. So, guess what? This happens to be one of those special occasions. And from the look of things, exploring such a unique, multi-faceted company should be interesting.

But, is it possible to focus on both simultaneously without compromising either?
