RocketShipIt Rates and Tracking®

"I was planning on working on this project until next monday but it's already just about wrapped up thanks to RocketShipIt" -- Wyatt G -

Have no need for advanced features like label printing but still want rates and tracking?

RocketShipIt Rates and Tracking™ comes complete with rates and tracking features of all the major carriers for one low price.

Shipping Rates
Package Tracking

Save money, actual rates

RocketShipIt gives you actual rates direct from the carrier. RocketShipIt uses the same backend API that the carriers use on their own site to rate shipments. Rate based on a daily pickup, customer counter, and more. Avaliable rate types include: List Rates, Discounted Rates (based on your account number), and Suggested Retail Rates.

Find out transit time before you ship New!

Ever wonder how Amazon can tell you when your package will arive before you checkout? RocketShipIt uses the carrier's Time in Transit API to calculate the time it will take for packages to reach your customers based on their distance from your shipping facility.

Easily track and display package history

Increase exposure by providing your customers with real time package tracking on your own site. Track by shipment id, reference number, invoice number, RMA number, and more.

Support for all major carriers

RocketShipIt supports all the major carriers; UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL, and CanadaPost with more coming.

Advanced Rating options

RocketShipIt supports rating multiple package shipments, rate by dimensional weight, rate packages with signature options, insured packages, and more.

Free updates for life

As with all RocketShipIt products you recieve free updates for life. If a carrier adds a new feature, changes their APIs, or new carriers are added you get it all for free.

Address Validation

RocketShipIt Rates and Tracking now comes with adress validation. Offer your customers address suggestions or simply lookup residential status of an address easily.

Dead simple.

Since any parameter can be defaulted, all RocketShipIt requests are only a few lines of code.

Here is a simple rate example:

$rate = new \RocketShipIt\Rate('FEDEX');
$response = $rate->getSimpleRates();

Most customers find RocketShipIt Rates and Tracking to be really easy to implement; however, RocketShipIt is a programmers tool and does assume you have knowledge in the following concepts.
