A verb used to describe the action of wishing for two people to enter a relationship (whether romantic or occasionally platonic) in books, movies, tv shows or real life. Shipping can often happen involuntarily, and it is the majority of what happens on the website, Tumblr. There are some very popular ships, some unpopular, as well as often lots of controversy between ships from the same fandom.
"Do you ship Klaroline, or Steroline?"

"Omigod. I am definitely shipping Olicity."

This is most ofter used on tumblr by fandoms. Fandoms will ship everything and anything. Shipping comes from the word relationSHIP. Basically it is when you want a fictional character, real-life person, or cartoon people to be together. People often write fanfictions about their favorite ship, called their OTP.
Person 1: Wow I totally ship michellie!!
Person 3: wait how can you ship a person isn't that illegal to send them with UPS or something?
Person 2: No i want them as a couple. It's called Shipping.

When you think two people are a match made in heaven for each other, you ship them. Usually used in fandoms.
person 1: Omg, are you shipping Kambrose or Lambrose?
person 2: Kambrose? No! Never! When did that even exist?
person 1: Someone thought it would be funny to say Karim and Mr Ambrose... like this book is set in the victorian times. Gay love wasn't welcome at all.
person 2: Who cares, I ship Lilly Linton and Rikkard Ambrose so hard I could die.
person 1: Agreed, Lambrose for the win!!!!!!!!!

Fandom uses this word as a verb to denote their interest in the possible (and perhaps more often impossible) romantic relationship between two characters in a piece of fiction belonging to any medium. It's really never used in a platonic way, but if it ever is, people tend to separately emphasize that they are using it platonically.

Usually written: Character/Character or CharacterxCharacter. Fanfiction without any shipping, or with little emphasis on ship is usually labeled genfic, which there is a depressing lack of.
Person 1: It is a little weird how much I am retroactively shipping ChrisxLexi
Person 2: Yeah. That's kinda Odd. And Chris's like a Big Star. He's got a Sexy Girlfriend..
Person 1: But did you notice how weirdly Sexually Cra-Cra they are for each other???

Person 2: No. Eww. Stop talking.
