The API always calculates packing requirements while shipping rates is optional. Enter your courier account information under the Shipping Rates tab if you would like the calculator to obtain shipping rates on your behalf.

Integration and Testing

There are two ways to access the API. You can integrate it to your shopping cart, WMS or ERP systems using the API web services, or use the online calculator which does not require programming. To use the online calculator, add sample products with product dimensions and weights to your warehouse catalog.

The online calculator utilizes the API to calculate packing requirements and shipping rates. To calculate shipping rates, a destination address is required. Enter item quantities and destination, then click the Rate Quote button.
