Does anybody know if Royalmail provides the API to generate the shipping LABEL. I've gone thru their technical guide but havent found anything about API yet.. They have mentioned how the label looks like, what can be the dimensions etc etc. but not any information about API.

I want to generate a LABEL in our system using their API, we have already got a thermal printer which is specially designed for printing royal mail labels.

I will appreciate your help.

Thank you in advance,

    I read this guide and it appears to contain all the information needed to make a shipping label.

    However you must become eligible to use Despatch Express and have a compatible thermal printer.

    As for a simple to use web based service. It does not exist.
