- Intuitive API: A library that abstracts and unifies the typical shipping API services (
- Multi-carrier: Integrate purplship once and connect to multiple shipping carrier APIs
- Custom carrier: A framework to integrate a shipping carrier services within hours instead of months
For a complete shipping management REST API with a dashboard checkout purplship-server.
