Current Endpoint: https://api.simplecertifiedmail.com/RESTv4.0
SimpleCertifiedMail.com's REST API exposes a number of methods that support third party integration with our service. Integrators may create Certified or Priority Cover Sheets, and follow up by looking for status updates via our suite of tracking methods. The REST API also supports our partners who need outsourced printing services by exposing the "queuePrintItem" method that accepts a PDF representation of the piece to be printed and mailed.
To get started with your integration, please sign up for a developer account by clicking the "Login" icon and filling out the "Register Here" section. You will then have access to your account page and a test Partner Key that is used in the token calls. You will also be able to make use of the "Online API Tester" to get a feel for the format of the calls prior to coding your solution.
For clients who wish to create and mail their own Cover Sheets, please examine documentation on the "Get Certified Mail" and "Get Priority Label" methods. For tracking, there are a few options but the basics are covered with "Get Document Status".
Customers looking to make use of the "Mailing Services" features will want to look at the "Queue Print Item" documentation, followed by the "Get Document Status By Doc ID" for tracking.
Finally, when you are ready to go live and begin creating production pieces you will need to request a live Partner Key. This is accomplished from the "My Account" screen, at the bottom of the page where it says "Request Live Partner Key". To obtain a live partner key you must have access to the User Name, Password, and Client Code for a live SimpleCertifiedMail.com client. This is an account created through the "Sign Up" process found at https://www.simplecertifiedmail.com. A live client will have one or more valid payment instruments on file with SimpleCertifiedMail.com and be prefunded for creating live postage.
