RocketShipIt Rates and Tracking™
"I was planning on working on this project until next monday but it's already just about wrapped up thanks to RocketShipIt" -- Wyatt G - Excela.com
Have no need for advanced features like label printing but still want rates and tracking?
RocketShipIt Rates and Tracking™ comes complete with rates and tracking features of all the major carriers for one low price.
Save money, actual rates
RocketShipIt gives you actual rates direct from the carrier. RocketShipIt uses the same backend API that the carriers use on their own site to rate shipments. Rate based on a daily pickup, customer counter, and more. Avaliable rate types include: List Rates, Discounted Rates (based on your account number), and Suggested Retail Rates.
Find out transit time before you ship New!
Ever wonder how Amazon can tell you when your package will arive before you checkout? RocketShipIt uses the carrier's Time in Transit API to calculate the time it will take for packages to reach your customers based on their distance from your shipping facility.
Easily track and display package history
Increase exposure by providing your customers with real time package tracking on your own site. Track by shipment id, reference number, invoice number, RMA number, and more.
Support for all major carriers
RocketShipIt supports all the major carriers; UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL, and CanadaPost with more coming.
Advanced Rating options
RocketShipIt supports rating multiple package shipments, rate by dimensional weight, rate packages with signature options, insured packages, and more.
Free updates for life
As with all RocketShipIt products you recieve free updates for life. If a carrier adds a new feature, changes their APIs, or new carriers are added you get it all for free.
RocketShipIt Rates and Tracking now comes with adress validation. Offer your customers address suggestions or simply lookup residential status of an address easily.
Since any parameter can be defaulted, all RocketShipIt requests are only a few lines of code.
Here is a simple rate example:
$rate = new \RocketShipIt\Rate('FEDEX'); $rate->setParameter('toCode','59715'); $rate->setParameter('weight','5'); $response = $rate->getSimpleRates();
Most customers find RocketShipIt Rates and Tracking to be really easy to implement; however, RocketShipIt is a programmers tool and does assume you have knowledge in the following concepts.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can RocketShipIt be used in commercial applications?
Does RocketShipIt work with Zencart, OScommerce, Magento, Paypal, or Cart X?
The short answer is yes. Technically, RocketShipIt will work with anything that uses PHP 5+ and has the cURL extension installed. All you need to do is pass in the address and weight information and RocketShipIt will do the rest.
What formats do the rates come in?
Currently everything in RocketShipIt is returned as an associated array. You have the option of requesting full detailed rates that show fuel surcharges, rural charges, and other information; however, most RocketShipIt customers take advantage of our simple rates feature which only returns the service name and the total rate in an easy to use array.
Does RocketShipIt calculate dimensional weight?
Does RocketShipIt work for International shipments?
Shipping rules and regulations vary with among different countries. RocketShipIt strives to work in every scenario possible and have successfully created valid rates for Canada, Mexico, Australia, Germany and the UK. If your destination country is not working in RocketShipIt we will work with you and come up with a solution within a reasonable time frame.
Can I get rates for shipments with multiple packages?
Yup. Up to 999 of them at once.
What are negotiated rates?
Negotiated rates include the retail rate minus the discount you get for being a UPS volume shipper. This is the rate you recieve from the carrier.
Does the RocketShipIt script connect to the carrier directly?
Yes. RocketShipIt communicates directly with the carrier so you don't have to worry about the service going down.
Can RocketShipIt handle my volume?
Yes. Since RocketShipIt connects to the carriers directly, you are utilizing the power of their servers. RocketShipIt has several customers shipping over ten thousand shipments per day.
