The Royal Mail Shipping SOAP API provides the functionality for customers to take a shipping transaction from creation to collection. It is a service offered via Royal Mail to request for the creation, update, cancellation of a shipment, printing of a label, printing of international Customs documents, requesting 2D bar code ranges, requesting 1D Item ID ranges, creation and printing of a manifest.
Built on industry standards, the API provides a simple and low cost method for customers to integrate with Royal Mail, and allows them to get shipping quickly.
There are no costs to customers for using the Shipping API's services, however customers’ own development costs must be covered by the customer developing the solution. Royal Mail will not accept any responsibility for these development, implementation and testing costs.
Customers should address initial inquiries regarding development of systems for these purposes to their account handler.

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.
