KeyDelivery API Introduction

KeyDelivery provides the best value for your money, making shipping and tracking simple and cost-effective.

Let KeyDelivery deal with the complex integration of different carrier APIs and protocols.

You can use all KeyDelivery’s APIs individually or integrate them with other tools to build powerful shipping functionality into your application, website, ERP system, or other software.

Why KeyDelivery uses signature?

Signature is an encrypted parameter and is used for protecting your API request. It prevents others from accessing your request information by illegal methods when they intercept your request.

The signature is composed of the request parameters (json+API-Key+SecretAccessKey). It is encrypted by 32-bit uppercase using the MD5 algorithm. Because it is related to your request parameters, the signature is unique. If someone intercepts your request, they cannot crack the request or make a fake request to access your data.

We know that using HTTPS transmission is secure, but using the signature parameter can improve your data protection. We take data protection very seriously.

API Key & Signature

All KeyDelivery APIs require authentication. Therefore, you need to sign up to get an API Key, then encrypt the API Key using the signature parameter.

In short, your authorization parameter header consists of the parameters API-Key and signature.

API-Key: The API Key is unique and is used for API authentication.

Signature: The Signature element is the "json" of selected elements from the request, and so the Signature part of the Authorization header will vary from request to request. If the request signature calculated by the system matches the Signature included with the request, the requester will have demonstrated possession of the KeyDelivery secret access key. The request will then be processed under the identity, and with the authority, of the developer to whom the key was issued. You can construct your signature as follows.

  • ● A string is composed of json and API-Key and SecretAccessKey
  • ● Then use MD5 algorithm for 32-bit uppercase encryption
  • ● Result Example:A1B2C3D4A1B2C3D4A1B2C3D4A1B2C3D4

Real-time Shipment Tracking

You can get real-time shipment status information through this API without creating a tracking command. Real-time shipment tracking API will get the shipment information from the carrier and respond, the tracking details after you submit the tracking number. The information includes shipment route, shipment status, date, and time, etc.

Reminder: If you need to obtain massive tracking information and update the information regularly, please use the Create Tracking API and set up a webhook for receiving updates.

Create Tracking

You can use this API to add tracking numbers to KeyDelivery's tracking system. Then you can receive shipment status updates automatically with our webhooks. You must submit the following two parameters to use this feature, the carrier ID and the tracking number. Besides, you also need to use a webhook to receive the updated information.

We will track your orders after receiving the tracking number. When the shipment status changes, we will send the tracking information to you by using the webhooks until the life cycle of these tracking numbers ends (usually we will end the tracking when the shipment is "Delivered").

For some tracking requests, we will usually check the shipment status for the first time in 15 minutes after activating the Create Tracking API correctly. If there is no shipment status information about it in the first 15 minutes, we will check it every 4 hours and adjust the tracking frequency based on factors such as the status of the shipment.

Webhooks

You can subscribe to tracking updates for a package (such as updating the package status). Our system will send the latest status to your application or software or SaaS tools through the webhook.

Carrier Auto-detection

You can submit the courier tracking number through this API to determine the carrier ID to which the tracking number may belong. The returned data is a list of possible carrier IDs, and the carrier ID with high possibility ranks first.
