Yodel Collect Plus offers domestic shipping solutions for shipments originating in Great Britain.

This guide provides developers an overview of shipping services that Yodel Collect Plus offers and the service codes that you will use to create Yodel Collect Plus shipments.

Connect Your Account

ShipEngine API allows you to connect your Yodel Collect Plus accounts programmatically without logging in to the ShipEngine API dashboard. This is useful if you have wrapped a custom UI around the ShipEngine API toolset and want to add or disconnect existing carrier accounts without exposing your end users to the API dashboard.

These APIs can be used in parallel with the ShipEngine Partner APIs to programmatically create new ShipEngine users, and then connect existing Yodel Collect Plus accounts all via the API without logging into a dashboard. Together these APIs empower you to completely white-label the ShipEngine experience for your end users.

Continue below for instructions on how to programatically connect Yodel Collect Plus using the ShipEngine API.
