We require a carrier integration with Stallion Express in Canada, and I have a few getting started questions before we break ground:
Is an integration already available out there?
Is an integration planned and expected within the next few months?
Does anyone recommend an experienced developer to tackle this?
… I guess I am building it myself.
Once built, it will be essential to have Ship Hero automatically select the cheapest carrier. I see the instructions for creating and registering a label creation webhook, but how will the “cheapest” automation rule work? Can I create a flag or separate endpoint for quoting that does not purchase a label?
We will proceed to build an integration as it is needed urgently, so no need for a feature request.
I will still need to solve the “cheapest” challenge… Are you able to tell me a bit more about how the “cheapest” rule works today. How do you know which is cheapest before purchasing a label? For native carrier integrations, I assume there is greater capability built in that makes this possible?
If that is not available to custom integrations, what is the most effective approach that you recommend to solve the problem of identifying and automatically selecting the cheapest carrier/method?
It is disappointing however that the capability of custom carrier integrations is limited.
Although we will be proceeding with our own integration build for the time being, I would like officially request two features: 1) Enhancement of your custom Carrier integration capabilities to allow for complete functionality including quoting for cheapest calculation, 2) A native direct integration with Stallion Express.
Unfortunately, we don’t have the resources to build this integration at the moment.
We will keep this request open as a reference in case we manage to add it in the future.
I apologize for the inconvenience and thanks for the patience while we discussed this internally.
Please let us know if there is anything we could help with!
