  • cog-transfer
    Dozens of carriers, hundreds of services in a single API

    You could spend weeks integrating each carrier individually with countless testing iterations prior to sign-off. Or get up and running with all your carriers in as little as an afternoon by using our simple API, backed by helpful documentation and developer tools.

  • truck-check
    Focus on your business, not carrier integrations

    Carriers frequently update their systems in-line with regulatory requirements and to keep on top of technological advancements. We maintain these integrations so you don't have to - so you can instead focus on running and growing your business.

  • application-cog-outline
    Benefit from advanced functionality and new features

    Our API-first approach means you can benefit from new feature releases early to get the most out of your Shipmate account. Advanced custom fields, data mappings, routing rules and more provide a tighter integration between systems.

Seamless integration with your infrastructure

Use the Shipmate API to automate your despatch process seamlessly across your organisation with direct data feeds.

Label printing can be managed through your application via PDF or ZPL, or using our Desktop Printer App, with the ability to state which printer each label is sent to.

Order statuses can be updated using tracking information via Webhooks, so your system is updated as soon as we receive updates from the carrier.

Carrier Shipping API for Developers Multi-Carrier Shipping API
"We let Shipmate worry about carrier integrations, whilst we sell worldwide. In practical terms, integrate once with Shipmate, let them code and maintain the APIs, and ship with all the carriers of your choice. If you want to change to a new carrier integration, it’s a support request, not an internal development project."
