Recommended integration methods

When you want to integrate your online store or WMS/ERP system with Posti SmartShip, we recommend the following integration methods.

Integrate your online store with Posti SmartShip

Unifaun REST API

Unifaun REST API is intended for customers who have a web-based ERP/WMS or an online store. The customer then builds the opportunity to send and receive order information in JSON format via the Internet. REST API returns the address label to the customer in PDF format. Learn more about Unifaun REST API.

You need a transaction code to log in to Posti’s electronic services, such as Posti SmartShip. If your company does not yet have a transaction code, you can order the code here.

Options for the integration:

  1. There is an existing SmartShip module for the online store platform you are using

● Check the attached listing to find out if there is an existing module for your platform. ● If you cannot find a suitable module for your online store from this table, please contact you online store supplier.

After obtaining the Posti SmartShip module for your platform, you must activate the Posti SmartShip integration.

See the integration instructions for Posti SmartShip’s REST interface. The integration instructions also include ordering login credentials for the Posti SmartShip system’s development environment.

Unifaun OnlineConnect

Unifaun OnlineConnect is an application component installed locally on the customer’s servers and integrated with the customer’s ERP/WMS system. The customer’s system produces XML material for the OnlineConnect system, on the basis of which OnlineConnect sends EDI to Posti and prints our address labels directly onto the printer selected by the customer. Learn more about Unifaun Online Connect

Deployment of the integration:

  1. You need a transaction code to log in to Posti’s electronic services, such as Posti SmartShip.

  2. Install the Unifaun OnlineConnect application component in your application environment and set up your ERP/WMS system with the option of transferring data in XML format to the Unifaun OnlineConnect application.

Software suppliers may also have modules for ERP platforms containing Unifaun interfaces by default. Ask your supplier; this will make the integration easier.
