We are proud to announce our partnership with Reaction Commerce, a completely open-source JavaScript platform for ecommerce experiences of today.

As a developer, I am excited to see Reaction Commerce partner with Shippo to provide shipping for their open-source, fully featured commerce platform built with developers in mind. This allows a completely native customer and seller shipping experience directly from the platform.

Reaction Commerce integrated Shippo into their platform using Shippo’s NodeJS client library. Since Reaction Commerce is an open source platform, I can use their code to highlight some best practices for integrating Shippo into applications and platforms.

Introducing API Versioning and Test Mode

By Shippo Engineering , Thu 27 Oct 2016

shippo version 2016-10-25

We are excited to introduce the next version of Shippo API.

After printing millions of labels and having thousands of developers integrating our API, we’ve  taken all the feedback and decided to improve the API by rolling out versioning.

We will continue to improve and release new features for all versions of our API as we have done in the past. However, we’ve been restricted with old functionalities, being careful that we don’t break any existing integrations.

Now, with API versioning, we can systematically release updates that may be backwards-incompatible and let developers choose if they’d like to upgrade. We hope this improves the developer experience for all of our customers. 

Learn more about API versioning and check out our changelog for details about the latest versions.

Announcing Updates to Our Package Tracking API

By Shippo Engineering , Thu 06 Oct 2016

Shippo Tracking App

Using the Shippo Tracking API you’re able to get the tracking status of any shipment with a tracking number and knowledge of which carrier the package was shipped with. 

We’ve recently made a number of updates to the package tracking API, providing more information about the package status, and allowing developers to add metadata to their tracking status requests.

Additional Tracking Data

Beyond getting the current shipment status and full tracking history, we’ve added new fields containing more information about the shipment:

  • address_from and address_to: which includes information about the city, state, zip code and country.
  • eta: estimated time of arrival of the shipment.
  • servicelevel: the service level that the shipment was sent with.
