Shipito offers a way to control your client account using an Application
Programming Interface (API) for 3rd party developers.
An API is an application program interface, which is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications.
With our API, you can now integrate Shipito into your own e-commerce solution and be able to operate more efficiently (for example, if you are high volume shipper, or if you want to create your own mobile application to offer to other clients)
Our API contains methods for working with packages, consolidations, mailing out and reporting issues, and for making special requests.
If you are a software developer and you are interested in access to our API, please send us email at [email protected] with a brief description about the intended use, and we will give you access.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is an API?
An API is an application program interface, which is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. It is a good option especially for those that have a high number of packages shipped, or to run your own business.
An API can be a big help, especially to developers that need, for
example, to connect a Shipito account with an online shop,
phone/tablet apps, etc.
It can be applied to the main operations that you have on your account, such as working with packages, consolidations, mailing out and reporting issues, and special requests.
Are there new features compared to a classic client
No. All of the functions are the same. The only difference is that the API can be called by different software, so you can integrate Shipito into your business system.
Can I develop a mobile application with this API?
Yes, you can. We didn’t set up any limits for mobile applications, so everyone can develop a mobile application and publish it to a mobile store.
Do you have plugins for other software? For
example, a plugin for e-commerce solutions, like OpenCart or Magento?
No, unfortunately we do not have any extensions to existing software. But you can create some and publish them under your pricing.
I found a bug. What should I do?
Please report it to [email protected] We will fix it as soon as possible.
I need an additional new function/action, or an added field in a service
response. What should I do?
Please report it to [email protected] We will consider your request, and most likely implement it.
A feature that was previously available is now
renamed, or not available at all
The Shipito API is constantly under development, and some features may change names, URLs, or become unavailable completely, while other new features become available. Whenever possible, we will keep our API backward compatible. For the current API version, please refer to the API documentation.
