Non Hosted API

APIs for localization and checkout

Localization - provides country-specific address field labels, currencies, and current exchange rates.

Localizing your product prices as well as how you accept your customer’s name and address have the greatest effect on whether an international shopper purchases from your online store. Our Localization API is designed to be called with results cached before your international shoppers arrive at your site.

For more details, please visit the Localization API page.

Checkout - provides shipping quotes, duty and tax quotes, and restricted items screening.

The hardest part of selling to international shoppers is accurately calculating shipping rates, allowing for prepayment of import duties and taxes, and mitigating the risks of restricted items that hold the whole order up in customs.

This API section accepts the details of completed orders and screens them for US Denied Parties that you cannot legally export to; it is designed to be called during an international shopper’s checkout process, upon their filling in their shipping address, and upon completing their order.

Introduction

These endpoints provide you with accurate shipping quotes, import duties and taxes, and screen the items being purchased for restrictions. These restrictions can be caused by many reasons, including country import laws, brand restrictions, carrier restrictions, etc. Additionally, when you take an order from an international customer, you need to call our API with a few more details so that we can screen the customer against US Denied Party Lists. If your customer is in fact a denied party, we will send an email notification to your organization.
