ShipEngine is a logistic and shipping API integration tool. It helps through the entire order fulfillment and shipping management process, from comparing rates among 30-plus carriers to validating addresses around the world, printing labels in real time, and tracking your shipments to their final destinations.
Set up a connection
This video demonstrates creating a ShipEngine connection.
After you start the connection, configure it in the Create connection panel and complete all the required * authentication settings:
|Name your connection *||Enter a clear and distinguishable name. Throughout integrator.io imports and exports, you will have the option to choose this new connection. A unique identifier will prove helpful later when selecting it from a list of the connections in your account.|
|API key *||Enter your ShipEngine API key.
Multiple layers of protection, including AES 256 encryption, are in place to keep your API key safe. When editing this connection, you must re-enter this value each time; it is stored only when the connection is saved and never displayed as text.
