Just as other carriers have their own API, FedEx’s shipping API is designed to create labels, facilitate returns, track shipments, and so much more. Integrating with the FedEx API on your own means you’ll need to spend time and developer resources maintaining this integration, an ever-evolving hurdle that many of our customers don’t wish to tackle.
The initial integration into the API could take months to complete, and as updates come out, your developers will have to spend time leveraging valuable resources to keep your e-commerce operations functioning as normal.
As an alternative, consider integrating with EasyPost’s multi-carrier shipping API to gain access to not only FedEx but hundreds of other carriers. Your ideal e-commerce shipping solution is only a few clicks away.
