Select Courier API

Connecting the World

Introduction

Select Courier API offers a fast and convenient way to access Select Courier service information using the Internet.
With this API, Select Courier lets you easily incorporate Select Courier technology in your own applications or your own website. Your users running your applications or visiting your website can have fast and safe access to the Select Courier services.

Any tool that is fluent in HTTP can communicate with our API simply by requesting the correct URI. Requests should be made using the HTTPS protocol so that traffic is encrypted. The API responds to different methods depending on the action required.

After the API is implemented you will be able to obtain the services we offer, generate quotes, place bookings, generate labels, arrange collections and get tracking information.

Requirements
! JSON library and Internet connection.
! API supports only ASCII characters.

Authentication

To make API requests we would advise you to use cURL library. You will also need an API key API secret. API keys are unique codes that identify you or your application each time you make a call to one of our API’s. API Secret is another code which severs like a password for the API key. After creating an account with us, you will be able to generate API key and API secret in your settings environment.
