EasyPost is a multi-carrier shipping solution. The EasyPost API is one integration point for 100+ carriers, including Purolator. All Purolator functionality is accessible using the EasyPost API, including tracking as a stand alone product. EasyPost standardizes the inconsistencies across carrier tracking and shipping APIs with its RESTful interface.
Thinking of trying Purolator's Tracking API? There are a number of points to consider, many of which will affect cost, performance, and integration times.
First off, the Purolator Tracking API is a SOAP / XML API. This can introduce problems of its own when attempting to parse responses from their API.
Additionally, Purolator doesn't provide any supported client libraries. Regardless your programming language, you'll need to write your own client library.
Info about the Purolator Tracking API can be found on the Purolator E-Ship Server 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.
