You can read more about how to generate an API key for your Sendle account here

1. Signup with Sendle

You can sign up for a new account at

Before you can start using the API, you'll need to attach a credit card to your account for invoicing. This card will need to be in the currency you're going to be creating orders in.

2. Generate an API Key

To generate your key:

  • Sign into your Sendle dashboard.
  • Go to 'Settings'.
  • Go to the API tab.
  • Add your website and any other information (this is used for identification purposes only).
  • Press the 'Claim Access' button to display your API key and Sendle ID.


3. Save the API Key

Once your API key has been generated, save it for the next step by copying it to your clipboard.

Also, you will need to take note of your Sendle ID.

4. Activate the Sendle Fulfilment Service

From the Fulfilment Services page in your Spiffy Stores admin, click Activate for the Sendle service, and paste the API Key into the form.

Use the context menu to paste the token from the clipboard, or use the keyboard shortcut for Paste.

You should also copy the Sendle ID as well.

You can tick the option to make this fulfilment service the default service for your store, if necessary. You should do this if you are using Sendle to ship the majority, if not all, of your store's items.

Update the settings, and your Sendle account should now be connected to your Spiffy Store.

5. Using the Sendle Shipping Calculator

Once you have enabled Sendle as a Fulfilment service, you can then enable automated shipping calculations in your checkout using the Sendle API. To do this, follow the instructions below.

  1. Go to the Preferences -> Shipping & Handling section of your store's admin
  2. Create a weight based shipping rate
  3. Click the "Switch to a Shipping Agent rate calculator" link
  4. Under "Choose a Shipping Agent", select "Sendle"
  5. Save your rate
