Ship by Product Hunt
A toolkit for makers to ship awesome products ⛵
Ship is a toolkit for makers to build awesome products. Use Ship to generate demand, build an email list, and communicate with your audience, and ship product.
You can put very little effort into building a landing page and getting beta customers, letting you focus on shipping your product!Cons:
Nothing really! There's still a free version for everyone bootstrapping!
There was a void left by people who wanted to reach the Product Hunt community but weren't ready to launch. You had to put a lot of effort into creating a webpage just to do a 'Pre-launch' hunt. That's all simplified now.Kunal Bhatia has used this product for one month.
The fastest way to collect emails while your buildCons:
Nope, beats WordPress landing pages any day
We've been using our upcoming page for the last couple of weeks and have collected over 1,000 emails already 😊
Saves days if not weeks by giving you tools to launch and iterate out of the box.

Get early validation and an easy intro page to built for your product. Users can sign up through the page on Product Hunt and give feedback.Cons:
I have been using Ship since August and gained most subscribers from the Product Hunt community. You are able to message all the users who have subscribed to your product to keep them up to date. Ship is a great way to use user feedback before, during, and after you build your product.Angie has used this product for one month.
Looks like a simple integration to Landing and starts collecting leads. Can't beat a free version even I'm on the waiting listCons:
Can't say until I use it
Based on the demo, this tool will streamline the pre-launch efforts, ie very cool to have a landing page to collect leads. Can't wait to try it out. Hopefully will fit my purpose as I'll be launching a product here too :)Beth Fiedler has never used this product.
Easy to setup Landing PageCons:
No real feedback, finding LandPage is very difficult, no output for setting up Landing Page
I've requested the free version of Ship, for testing our MVP Design Thinking App Pyoneer. First of all it was a big hassle to get access to Ship, even with sharing PH on Twitter and FB.
As i've complained via email, the team granted my access to ship immediately, but I wish they would NOT have done that... I was happy and looking forward to get my landing page ready, to see first results and feedback of the community.
After couple days I have to say this was a pain in the ass, no feedback, no page view, no nothing!!!
Me and colleagues tried to find our app on the "upcoming" feed, but after we have scrolled down for 5 Minutes, we stoped after we could NOT find the landing page..
After I've contacted customer support again, to get feedback how somebody can find us, I just received feedback that "They feature in clusters and rotate regularly."
Dear Product-Hunt Team, from my point of view Ship is a bad ripoff! I have the feeling either you have to pay an expensive price to get ranked higher or the ship feature is a big waste of time for early startups, having limited time and budget! Its frustrating espacially like for startups like us, as ProductHunt seamed to be a great opportunity for us to get in contact with early adopters, but now I wonder why I followed your feeds daily...Stefan Link has used this product for one week.
