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.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
