Most other shipping APIs are painful to integrate and only provide access to a single carrier. You will need to write and maintain custom clients and learn a lot of custom rules for shipping with each shipping company. On top of this, any updates from of a single carriers could break your site and require an update by your developer. EasyPost is the exact opposite of this.
EasyPost provides you with easy to use client libraries in Ruby, Java, PHP, Python, and Node that significantly reduce integration time and connect you to all of the major shipping companies. We maintain the connections with each shipping company so you don't need to update your site if they change their API. EasyPost even handles a majority of the custom logic associated with each carrier - you just tell us about what you want to ship and we will choose the correct options for your shipment.
It's been our experience that the EasyPost API takes about 1/10th the time to integrate as a single carrier API. If you plan on using all the carriers, it's an even greater time savings.
Your rates are all passed through the EasyPost API! We don't negotiate rates, we just make it easier for you to access those carriers.
