ShipStation is more than just a great shipping app – it’s the best and fastest way to link Candid seamlessly to your accounting, 3PL, and multichannel inventory systems.
No more error-prone double entry or uploading CSVs. When you’re ready to ship an order in Candid, send it to ShipStation with a single click. ShipStation will then send the confirmed ship date and tracking info back to Candid when it finally goes out.

Yes! We’re happy to be your one and only wholesale channel, but we also don’t mind sharing. Wholesale is hard enough as is – we don’t want to add to that!
Unlimited orders at all plan levels.
You can add as many users as you need. The primary contact defaults to the person who signed up, which you are able to change at any time.
We do not charge order transaction fees. Instead, we offer monthly paid subscription plans that you can read more about here. If you choose to use Candid Pay, our optional order payment processor powered by Stripe, you will be charged a small, standard processing fee which you can read more about here.
We are similar to a wholesale marketplace in that we are a buying and selling platform, but we are different in that Candid is primarily a tool used to manage your wholesale activities all in one place.
Most marketplaces are good for discovery, but that’s about it, and they generally offer more benefits to the buyer. You also run the risk of competing with similar brands and having fewer repeat customers. Candid’s software, however, makes it easy to create and maintain relationships with your vendors – sellers get to know buyers, see order history and have direct communication. Candid will also never advertise competitors’ goods to your customers, which is the main feature of some marketplaces.
Yes! Candid supports tracking numbers from all platforms (and integrates directly with Shipstation) so your order and shipping info are synced and buyers can track their shipments.
Yes! Candid’s analytics can show you best-selling products across buyers, seasons, or any other criteria you’d like.
Depending on your specific inventory settings, inventory will either be decremented at the moment of order approval, or when it’s marked “Shipped.” You can read more about the specifics here.
