Pricing Formats


Pricing is one of the most important parts of using uShip. We want you to get the fairest price as a shipping customer. When listing your shipment, you can choose from a variety of options. 

Published Rates

  • Choose from up-front quotes from top carriers and brokers
  • Take a minute to look at your service provider's profile for feedback
  • Complete Booking and send Booking Request 
  • If your request is accepted, you will get an e-mail titled Booking Confirmation


  • If you don't want to book a Published Rate, you can click Get Estimate
  • List your item(s) by using the step-by-step process 
  • Select the Request Quotes box
  • Usually, service providers will start placing bids within 24-48 hours

Name Your Price

  • You can also choose to name the price you want to pay and click the Submit My Offer button
  • Communicate with service providers on the Q&A board to negotiate 
  • Update your price if needed and complete booking
