Returns how much you'll expect to pay to send a parcel, given the shipping details and your current plan.
You'll receive one quote for each shipping product Sendle supports for the given route. Products are separated by details like service type (e.g. Standard vs Express) and first-mile option (whether a driver will pickup the parcel or the sender will drop it off at a valid Sendle location). When booking the delivery with a quote from this endpoint, you need to send the selected product code along with your order.
You can get quotes for both domestic and international shipments. International parcels can be shipped from Australia to countries around the globe, or from Canada to the United States.
Since this is a
GET request, the params need to be sent in the query string, not in the body like the create an order endpoint requires. The
? in the URL starts the query string.
Be sure to separate terms using
<name>=<value> pairs in the query string, and use percent-encoding for all spaces or special characters like the playground on the right shows. You can type some spaces and special characters into the boxes below to see how they get encoded! If you need more information on
POST requests, Mozilla's MDN has a nice summary.
Here are a few things to keep in mind while using this endpoint:
- Filter the returned list according to the user’s configuration (e.g. your integration may select whether to show the pickup or drop off “Sendle Standard” product).
- Display all valid quotes with the included product names (e.g. “Sendle Standard”, “Sendle Express”).
- Look at the Parcel Weights and Dimensions page for advice on parcel sizes.
- Look at the First Mile page to see how parcels enter our mail network.
- We decide which currency to return based on where the parcel is being sent from, so
CADfor Canadian, and
USDfor U.S. parcels. This is the currency you'll be charged in.
- The ETAs returned by this endpoint are the number of business days until the parcel should be delivered.
