We have developed six shipping solutions to make it easy for you to ship parcels to your customers using services across NZ Post. These solutions are in the form of APIs for easy integration with your website.
Parcel Address API
You can make your customer's checkout process easier with Parcel Address API. This allows for ‘type-ahead’ addressing functionality within your website for New Zealand or international customers to improve delivery performance.
Give your customers choice and control of shipping options by integrating this functionality into your shopping cart.
Using valid address and package details you provide, the Shipping Options API will display NZ Post parcel services enabled on your account to the chosen destination address. These options include identifying rural delivery and the add-ons available, such as evening delivery and signature required. As the merchant, you control which options and rates are displayed within your customer’s shopping cart.
More shipping options are being developed and these will be available to you online automatically, giving you and your customers maximum shipping flexibility.
Parcel Label API connects our parcel labelling functions with your warehousing and eCommerce systems. This enables you to quickly produce pre-printed labels to ensure delivery accuracy and speed, and scale it quickly as you grow.
Parcel Label API's rich functionality includes label creation for domestic, urgent and international parcel services and can include optional information such as rural delivery and signature required.
Parcel Label API can be implemented in conjunction with Parcel Address API and Shipping Options API, or independently, depending on your business’ needs.
Labels are provided in PDF format and can be printed from most commercially available printers. As charges are only applied when the label is scanned by one of our couriers, you won’t be charged for labels that are printed in error and discarded before being applied to the parcel.
Parcel Track API integrates tracking events for domestic and international deliveries into your own ecommerce system based on network scan events. By displaying tracking on your website you can create upselling opportunities, as well as potentially reducing calls to your call centre. An extra benefit is that you can use this information to track and benchmark delivery efficiency.
Parcel Track API can be used to retrieve the shipping history of an NZ Post parcel, based on network scan events, which can be displayed seamlessly with the look and feel of your website for use by your customers as well as your support team.
Creates a domestic label. If a collection point location ID is provided in the request, the label produced will be a Collection label and the mandatory customer notification subscription will be created.
