When we refer to ShipEngine, we are talking about the ability for you (the vendor) to generate a shipping label (for FedEx, UPS, etc.) in our Portal. You provide information in the shipping process that allows us to generate a PDF shipping label that you can print out from the Portal.
- If you are a non-Portal integration (EDI, API, XML, CSV), you will very likely not use ShipEngine because you will be setting up your internal systems to generate shipping labels. There is not a way to generate a ShipEngine label via EDI, API, etc. It has to be done in the Portal.
