Printing Shipping Label via API

Hi,

 

I am wanting to build a custom app that would display a list of the orders a staff member is responsible for.  It would then allow them to print lables for their orders.

 

Does the API allow custom apps to access and print shipping labels?  I've been looking through the documentation and forums, and am not seeing anything conclusive.

 

Thank you,

Hi @evenvision,

 

We don't currently offer an endpoint which allows access to shipping labels created through Shopify. You're free to use the API to get the orders list and implement your own system to generate labels, however this won't integrate with labels created through the Shopify admin.

Do you recommend any specific API Services for shipping label generation?

Is this still the case?

Bump - I have a strong need to automate shipping label creation.

I solved this problem using Shippo’s APIs and services for printing
shipping labels for USPS and UPS. They have a great solution if you’re
willing to pay for a 3rd party service.

@Brandon15  - before Shopify I came from Snipcart + Goshippo - I was hoping Shopify being a bigger company be able to solve this problem - especially folks plan to use this platform to ship a larger volume - especially for a small business (my case 1 person).

 

But yes I agree with you - shippo just gives me a straightforward way to print labels. And I plan to use that API for it.
