Stamps.com is an online postage vendor that also provides a SOAP-based API for generating USPS shipping labels. Users can make and print labels themselves or e-mail labels to customers for printing. The API also supports address cleansing, calculating USPS rates, package tracking, and more. These services are recommended for integration with web-based e-commerce systems or other web-hosted applications.
Of the many APIs we published this week, fourteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those fourteen, which included the Stamps.com API. The Stamps.com API provides web-based applications or ecommerce site with a platform allowing users to generate USPS shipping labels in virtually any technology environment
It's not enough to print stamps off your printer any more. What shippers really want is what the SOAP-based Stamps.com API does: integrate that function of printing postage into your own web-based ecommerce or web hosted applications to speed up the shipment of orders out the door. With the API you can do much more than calculate postage and print stamps. You can clean addresses and track packages, among other tasks.
