Shipping Journeys

Our API provides seamless integration to create shipping labels directly from your backend system, addressing two primary shipping journeys: "ship" and "checkout to ship".

  1. Ship: The “Ship" journey empowers customers to effortlessly generate shipping labels for orders directly from their backend systems. Whether you are processing orders manually or automating your fulfillment process, our API provides a straightforward solution for creating shipping labels with ease.
  2. Checkout to Ship: In addition to the “Ship” journey, our API also supports the “Checkout to Ship” journey, designed to enhance the end-customer experience during the checkout process. With this functionality, customers can select their preferred carrier service option directly within the checkout interface of your shop system. Once the order is confirmed, the shipping label is seamlessly generated from your backend system, streamlining the entire fulfillment process.
