Today, Postmaster Delivers a Smart Shipping API to eCommerce Developers Everywhere

March 20, 2013 by Jesse Lovelace

It’s no secret that eCommerce is taking off at record speed. In fact, it’s projected to top $1.2 TRILLION in 2013, globally, with a majority of those sales coming from the US and Europe. That’s a lot of small parcel shipments.

Here at Postmaster, we’ve been hard at work putting together an intelligent, data-driven platform and API for shipping that will finally make multi-carrier integration simple. Any business that ships product - especially SMBs in eCommerce, retail, and shopping carts - will attest that shipping integration in the past has been... a bit of a headache. As eCommerce developers ourselves, we saw a huge opportunity to not only make the integration of shipping into an eCommerce business easier, but also the chance to harness the vast data across shipments and carriers to truly optimize every step of the process, for once and for all.

Today, we’re thrilled to deliver the public beta launch of Postmaster. Now, any business that ships can save time and money integrating and optimizing every step of their shipping operations. We’re up and running for FedEx, UPS and USPS, and will be supporting regional and international carriers soon.
