Once you have created your account the very first page you will se asks you to configure your sender address.
We use the entered sender address when booking shipments for most of the carriers and the address is likely to be shown on the label as the sender of the package. This address and company information will also be used in tracking notifications to the end receiver.
You probably have a webshop and to take full advantage of our service you need to connect it to our platform.
To connect this please create a new API Token and copy it (right click and select Copy or use CTRL+C on Windows or CMD+C on Mac) and paste it into the integration you are using. To get more details about this, please select the integration you use in the menu to the left.
Before you can start booking shipments you need to connect your carrier(s) to our platform. Click on the carrier you would like to add and input the login credentials (these information were probably provided when you first made a contract with the carrier)
Once a carrier is connected then you authorize us to register your shipments with the carrier at what point a tracking number is assigned and the required shipping documents are created.
