I strongly recommend @ShipStation. If you have a e-commerce and need to ship your products, ShipStation will save you both money AND time.

If you're looking for a really easy way to import and ship items, I also HIGHLY recommend ShipStation. It's saved years from my life, plus the discounts are pretty great (Works with all above mentioned Ecom Clients).

We've not had an issuing using Easypost with eCom. We use Shipstation for our "Free Shipping" orders, but we didn't like the Beta integration of Shipstation - exported orders to shipstation, creating an extra step or three - whereas with Easypost we can print labels directly from the orders section of eCom.

Switched to ShipStation. Easier implementation. Easier, automatic updates. Comparably priced. Has capability of rules &filters to automate part of the process. Owned by Stamps.com, so your Stamps.com account works. Also includes an ExpressOne account which gives slightly better rates than Stamps.com for Priority Mail. We use them interchangebly. Also prints Fedex, UPS, DHL labels & more. Email shipping confirmation sent by ShipStation servers & updates Zencart status.
