Getting an API key

You will need an API key to use the Shipping API, API Explorer, and Postman collection.

Sandbox environment

Our sandbox is a free testing environment that is designed to mimic our production environment as closely as possible, so you can try out API calls and test your API integration.

To gain access to our sandbox environment, you must be a Metapack customer and you must request an API key from your Metapack account manager.

Note

API keys are sent by encrypted email to the email address specified in an API key request.

Production environment

To get your API key to access our production environment, you must be a Metapack customer and you must contact your Metapack Professional Services implementation consultant.
