To authenticate yourself to ShipCaddie, you need to include an Access Token in each API call. If you don’t include an Token when making an API request, or if you use an incorrect or expired Token, then ShipCaddie will respond with an error “AccessToken is missing.”
Below is an example for an API request to validate an address. This example shows the Access Token at the start of the body in the request.
"address1": "2600 Executive Pkwy",
"address2": "Suite 160",
To obtain an Access Token you’ll need to send a HTTP POST request to https://api.shipcaddie.com/api/v2.1/GetToken either using our API Reference Docs, or through a third party tool such as Postman and Curl.
