Shipping and receipt options in an online shop
API interface Shipping options

Anchor Navigation

Many customers appreciate having their parcels delivered in a way that suits their needs. Be it very quickly, not at their own address or at a certain time. This is why you should automatically show your customers in your online offer which services are available at their address and at the time of the order: delivery within a time slot? Saturday delivery? Or even same-day delivery?

Here’s how it works

The API Shipping options enables you to accompany your customers in the best way possible as they receive their item, by offering options such as:

Desired day

Give your customers the option of specifying one or more days of the week for delivery, for example because they are working from home.

Time slot delivery

Increase convenience and let your customers select the optimal delivery time from different time slots. 

Same-day delivery

Delivery on the same day? This service is also available to around 90 percent of all households in Switzerland. Automatically indicate if it is available at the buyer's address and if the time window for an order is still available on a specific day.


The interface is free of charge. You only invest in connecting it to your system.
