EasyPost is a multi-carrier shipping solution. The EasyPost API is one integration point for 100+ carriers, including Canada Post. All Canada Post functionality is accessible using the EasyPost API. EasyPost standardizes the inconsistencies across carrier APIs with its RESTful interface.
Thinking of trying the Canada Post API? There are a number of points to consider, many of which will affect cost, performance, and integration times. First off, the Canada Post API is a SOAP / XML API. This can introduce problems of its own when attempting to parse responses from their API.
Additionally, Canada Post doesn't provide any supported client libraries. Regardless your programming language, you'll need to write your own client library.Info about the Canada Post API can be found on the Canada Post Developer Program page. It often takes at least a week to get access to their API, so prepare to wait a bit.
Fortunately, there are alternatives to such a slow integration process. EasyPost is a multi-carrier API with quick technical support and client libraries for all major programming languages. EasyPost is a fully supported Canada Post Partner with all the Canada Post API functionality.
