"I was planning on working on this project until next monday but it's already just about wrapped up thanks to RocketShipIt" -- Wyatt G - Excela.com
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.
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.
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.
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.
RocketShipIt supports all the major carriers; UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL, and CanadaPost with more coming.
RocketShipIt supports rating multiple package shipments, rate by dimensional weight, rate packages with signature options, insured packages, and more.
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.
RocketShipIt Rates and Tracking now comes with adress validation. Offer your customers address suggestions or simply lookup residential status of an address easily.
Since any parameter can be defaulted, all RocketShipIt requests are only a few lines of code.
Here is a simple rate example:
<?php $rate = new \RocketShipIt\Rate('FEDEX'); $rate->setParameter('toCode','59715'); $rate->setParameter('weight','5'); $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.
RocketShipIt™ for Rates and Tracking strives to be the best solution for web-based shipping regardless of which programming language you use.
Don't see your favorite language on the list? Request a language RocketShipIt™ for Rates and Tracking should support.
The short answer is yes. Technically, RocketShipIt will work with anything that uses PHP 5+ and has the cURL extension installed. All you need to do is pass in the address and weight information and RocketShipIt will do the rest.
Shipping rules and regulations vary with among different countries. RocketShipIt strives to work in every scenario possible and have successfully created valid labels for Canada, Mexico, Australia and the UK. If your destination country is not working in RocketShipIt we will work with you and come up with a solution within a reasonable time frame.
The code is not obfuscated or encrypted in any way. Once you purchase RocketShipIt you will have full access to view the code behind it; however, If you find something that RocketShipIt doesn't do it is best to send requests upstream so you can benefit from future updates.
Negotiated rates include the retail rate minus the discount you get for being a volume shipper. This is the rate you recieve from your carrier.
As long as it is related to Rates and Tracking and the carrier supports it we support it. If you find a feature missing in RocketShipIt that you would like added we can usually accommodate.
Since RocketShipIt connects to the carriers directly you are utilizing the power of their servers. Currently RocketShipIt does over ten thousand shipments per day.
