What is an API?

API stands for Application Programming Interface[JD(C1] . It exists in order for different programs, applications and systems to be able to talk to each other. For example, you can use the PostNord API to connect your site or application to Skicka Direkt Business – our parcel booking system.

We can compare an API to a sort of bridge that allows different programs to communicate with each other. Or, you can think of it as ready-made building blocks you can use to perform certain functions. Using API’s you don’t need to reinvent the wheel each time and can instead use readily available snippets of code. This saves time, and you can quickly build a solution that works without too many developmental requirements.

PostNord API – how does it work?

The PostNord API is a so-called Rest API, or RESTful API. It works like a bridge between your application or website and our system. For example, you can place one or multiple shipment orders in Skicka Direkt Business without having to enter all the information manually.

Here are some suggestions of features you can integrate with your service thanks to our API:

  • Create shipping orders when a customer buys a product in your web store
  • Print shipping notes
  • Track parcels and send a tracking link
  • Make send-outs
  • Manage customer support cases and claims
  • Identify the closest collection point and tell your customer about it
  • Calculate an estimated delivery time
  • Make send-outs with customs information
