It's very quick to get up and running with Flexport! Just follow the steps below:
Step 1: Sign up
Simply sign up with your email address, no payment required!
Step 2: Connect your listing tool
You can connect one or more of your listing tools and marketplaces by selecting from our list of integrations, entering your credentials, and authorizing Flexport's access to the platform.
NOTE: If you’d prefer to connect your integration later, select ‘Skip for now.’ You can always add integrations by selecting ‘Add Integration’ in the left sidebar menu of your Flexport Portal account.
Step 3: Your product catalog will be automatically imported
Flexport will automatically import your product catalog once your marketplace or listing tool is connected. If any of your products are missing from the list, please see I Can’t Find My Product, Listing, or SKU for possible reasons why, along with solutions.
If a product did not import during your sync catalog or you prefer to manually add products to your catalog, select ‘Create Product.’ Enter the SKU exactly as it appears in your marketplace and give the product a name.
Step 4: Create your first shipping plan
Before you send us your inventory, you’ll need to create a shipping plan. Here are some helpful links for completing this process successfully:

Want to increase sales and get your orders delivered faster? Our merchants are able to improve sales by 20-40% on average and increase conversion rates by 38% on average when they activate Fast Tags, which means 1 to 4-day delivery, depending on the marketplace.
