Mothership API

Mothership provides a RESTful API that enables third-party developers to quote, purchase, and track shipments for their respective Mothership shipping accounts.

The API responds with JSON-encoded data and standard response codes. Additionally, webhooks are available to provide real-time status updates for shipments.

Accessing the API

Customers may request API access by clicking the "get API keys" link at the top of this page and filling out the provided form. A member of our support team will be in touch shortly to provide you with access tokens for your organization and assist you with onboarding.

Environments

There are two environments available to developers.

Description

Sandbox

https://sandbox.api.mothership.com

The sandbox is a safe environment to test endpoints without actually purchasing a shipment.

Some parameters are restricted to specific values. Details for each endpoint's limitations can be found in the API reference documentation.

Production

https://api.mothership.com

The production environment is, as you might expect, used to actually leverage Mothership's API.

The parameter limitations in the sandbox environment are not present in the production environment.
