PeriShip is a company that provides visibility and issue resolution capabilities for perishable shipments. PeriShip facilitates communications before, during, and after a shipment transaction. PeriShip offers an API that allows their customers to integrate their online shopping cart with the PeriShip services.
When customers receive an order on their website for a product, they can pass an XML formatted message which contains data about the shipment (such as weight, destination, service type) to the API and receive a response back that contains the cost of the shipment. The API also notifies users what types of services are available to the customer at the time of purchase thus providing a date of when to expect the delivery. Documentation is not publicly available.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
