The Royal Mail Shipping REST 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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
