Here is a quick example of how to create a shipment and label with PHP.
You may have noticed that RocketShipIt doesn't require your shipper address or service type.
With RocketshipIt you are in control of everything. All of the parameters needed for shipping can be set as defaults so you can minimize the amount of code you have to write for each shipment. However, you don't lose any flexibility as all defaults can be overridden on instatiation.
RocketShipIt will even generate sensible defaults by asking you questions before downloading so integration is as fast as possible. Of course, if you decide later you wish to change the defaults or add more it is as easy as changing a few lines.
RocketShipIt has built in support for generating return labels. RocketShipIt can even deliver emails to your customers with a valid return label. This makes RocketShipIt perfect for RMA systems.

Since RocketShipIt communicates directly from your server to the carrier you achieve the best possible response times. You can usually expect requests to be returned in less than one second for most carriers depending on your network connection and location.
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.
ZPL, EPL, EPLII, and GIF labels. ZPL/EPL are the print codes (in base64) required for thermal printing.
The labels come back in base64 format, which basically means they are a string. They can be embedded in an HTML page for viewing/printing, stored in a database, sent to a thermal printer, inserted into a PDF, saved as a GIF file, or emailed off. RocketShipIt doesn't impose any limits to what you can do with them.
