ShipEngine, the world's leading shipping API, today announced the launch of four new extensions are now available via Firebase. These new extensions will allow developers to customize ecommerce applications and optimize functionalities, including calculating shipping rates, validating addresses, creating labels, and tracking shipments.

ShipEngine's users traditionally sign up and use an API key to build ShipEngine's endpoints into their applications. With our new extensions for Google and Firebase, developers have access to a new way to leverage ShipEngine which is faster and easier than a direct integration via API. Users can minimize time and effort invested in managing manual shipping tasks, giving developers a streamlined process for adding world-class shipping capabilities into their existing applications.

"We’re excited to offer ShipEngine through Firebase with these four new extensions," said Jim Gagliardi, General Manager at ShipEngine. "Our goal is to simplify shipping for brands and platforms, and these extensions will help developers quickly and efficiently embed shipping-related functionality into their applications without a lengthy coding process."

Users can seamlessly integrate these extensions with their cloud Firebase collection. Once integrated, these extensions listen for new documents related to their functionality. For example, ShipEngine’s Validate Addresses extension will listen for documents that include new address information. Once the extension detects a new address, ShipEngine will attempt to validate that address. The other extensions work similarly, listening for relevant documents and performing tasks. These extensions empower developers working for brands, ecommerce platforms, and 3PLs to build out world-class shipping capabilities in their applications.

With ShipEngine’s new extensions for Firebase and Google, users are better equipped to solve for shipping no matter their coding abilities, empowering all businesses to focus on other high-value tasks. The new extensions are now available to all existing ShipEngine customers in the ShipEngine dashboard and via the Firebase Extensions page.
