Technical support “Barcode” web service

Configuring the electronic interface with Swiss Post

When configuring the “Barcode” web service, Swiss Post is there to help. You can call on a wide range of resources such as the schema, example files, documentation and manuals.

Schema for configuring the “Barcode” web service

When configuring the “Barcode” web service interface, the schema provides you with an indispensable template. This resource describes the standard with which incoming files are checked for structural conformity (“correct formulation”). It facilitates recognition and implementation of the data types and restrictions defined. You can check the files when sending them. The procedure is attached as an XSD (XML schema definition). Swiss Post only publishes the currently valid XSD versions.

Example files

The example files, together with the XSD files, make up the implementation templates which are structured according to the operations in the “Barcode” web service.
