Signup for an account with EasyPost
The first step is to signup for an account with EasyPost by providing necessary details.
Verify your e-mail address used for EasyPost account
Once you create an account by filling up necessary details, you will get an verification code in your email to verify your account.
Head to the API Keys section to find the Test & Production APIs
After you have verified the account details, the next step is to head over to your e-mail id –> API Keys, to find the EasyPost Test and Production Keys.
Add the required Carrier from your EasyPost Dashboard
After you get the API Key, you can add the required carrier from your EasyPost dashboard. Head to your email –> Carrier Accounts.
Search for your required carrier, add the account details, and save. Now, you can start shipping with this carrier.
Integrate EasyPost API with your eCommerce store
Once you get the EasyPost API Keys, you can integrate EasyPost with your eCommerce store (Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce or Magento) and start shipping. Ensure that you add the EasyPost “Production key” in the app.
Add the required EasyPost carrier directly from your e-Commerce store
Although you can add the required carrier from your EasyPost dashboard, it will be an additional effort to handle the carrier integration part outside your e-Commerce store. With the PluginHive shipping apps for Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce and Magento, you can directly add the carrier account from your online store without having to go back to the EasyPost dashboard.
