Quoting Deliveries

Sometimes a partner may want to generate a quote, without creating an actual delivery. For example, if a customer wants to know the price for a potential delivery but is not ready to book, a quote can be requested.

To create a quote:

  1. Input the same required information for the Create a Delivery endpoint.
  2. Use the Quote a Delivery endpoint to request the quote.

Note: Creating a quote does not guarantee the returned price if you later wish to then turn that quote into an order. A quote’s price is only relevant to the time and date of when it is requested.

To turn a quote into a delivery:

  1. Use the Quote a Delivery endpoint create the order quote
  2. Use the Convert a Delivery Quote into a Delivery endpoint to update the quote into a delivery.

Once a quote is being turned into a delivery, it can be called using the Get Delivery Info endpoint or canceled if needed. If you wish to review info about a quote that has not been turned into a delivery, use the Get a Specific Delivery Quote endpoint to request details.
