    ZePOST automated shipping feature is only available to Zepo users since it is integrated with the platform. However, the ZePOST logistics service is available to all. And the rates for that are the same as mentioned above.

    Are Zepo’s logistic services only available for users who have their online stores on Zepo or they are available for others as well?
