Note: Negotiated rates are only available in Production mode.

Carrier Setup

Upon sign-up with EasyPost, users gain immediate access to Default Carrier Accounts, which can be enabled directly from the Dashboard. For additional carriers, EasyPost supports a Bring Your Own Account (BYOA) option. This requires users to register directly with the respective carrier.

  2. Inform Maergo about using EasyPost's API for label purchases.
  3. Acquire rates and align any additional shipping needs.
  4. Obtain the following Test and Production account credentials from Maergo:

Documentation Review

Examine the EasyPost Objects section to understand the API's structure, which is critical for constructing requests and interpreting responses.


Rates

Maergo is a Live Rating integration, enabling real-time rate retrieval for shipments created via EasyPost.

  • When creating a shipment, EasyPost requests Maergo for shipment rates specific to the user's Maergo account.
  • The rates provided are directly from Maergo and tailored to the user's specific account details.
  • In cases of discrepancies or incorrect rates, users are advised to contact their Maergo account representative.
  • The representative can then update the rates in Maergo's database to ensure user account accuracy.

Billing is directly handled by Maergo. EasyPost does not participate in the billing process for Maergo services. Contact a Maergo representative for details.
