FedEx Platform Account API

Shippo is excited to announce that we are the first multi-carrier shipping platform to offer special discounted FedEx shipping services! Using these special shipping rates via our FedEx Platform Account will provide you with more shipping options and enable you to decrease your shipping costs!

All Shippo users currently have access to this feature update. However, if you are an API user, we did not automatically roll it out to your account to avoid potentially breaking your integration.


In this article, we'll review how you can add the new Platform Account to your API instance.


To start, make this one-time API call, replacing {{token}} with your live token:

curl --location --request POST '
/carrier_accounts/register/new' \
--header 'Authorization: ShippoToken {{token}}' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data-raw '{"carrier": "fedex", "parameters": {}}'

A successful response will have code
201 with a response similar to this, and the same object will be available under the /carrier_accounts/?carrier=fedex endpoint:

"carrier": "fedex",
"object_id": "86d843320c9a4e6a83ba825c8e9d5781",
"object_owner": "",
"account_id": "shippo_fedex_account",
"parameters": {},
"test": false,
"active": true,
"is_shippo_account": true,
"metadata": "",
"carrier_name": "FedEx",
"carrier_images": {
"200": "",
"75": ""
