AfterShip

Last updated on Nov 16, 2023

Aftership is a shipment tracking platform designed such that it can be integrated into your company’s website as a branded tracking page. It provides your customers with real-time updates about their orders and when they are expected to be delivered. Aftership reduces your logistics-related workload by automatically monitoring the status of an order and sending updates to your customers as soon as an order status changes. Additionally, it provides you with analytical reports on the number of orders shipped, delivered, lost, and so on, to identify any problems in your delivery system.

You can replicate the data from your Aftership account to a Destination database or data warehouse using Hevo Pipelines. Hevo ingests the data objects in Full Load mode. Refer to section, Data Model for the list of supported objects.

Aftership uses API keys to identify Hevo and authorize the request for accessing account data.


Source Considerations

  • Pagination: An API response for each AfterShip object includes one page with up to 200 records.

  • Rate Limit: AfterShip imposes a limit of 10 API calls per second per account. If the limit is exceeded, Hevo defers the ingestion till the limits reset.


Limitations

  • Hevo currently does not support deletes. Therefore, any data deleted in the Source may continue to exist in the Destination.

  • The data is loaded in Full Load mode in each Pipeline run. As a result, you cannot load the historical data alone at any time.
