API updates

Important updates

: Tracking API - Deprecation of Unauthenticated requests

Starting from May 13th, unauthenticated requests will no longer have access to the Tracking API. Previously, we implemented rate limiting measures. Read here on how to make authenticated requests.

If you see following error message that means you are not sending authenticated requests.

401 - Unathorized. The Tracking API no longer supports unauthenticated requests. Make sure your requests are authenticated. Read more about this on our Bring developer site. https://developer.bring.com/api/tracking/

: Tracking API – Starting from 2nd of May, 2024, we will reject browser calls associated with a customer number to enhance security.

We have discovered some API users exposing username and API key openly in the source code of their website. This means that this information is accessible to anyone with a certain level of technical expertise. This poses a security risk as it allows unauthorized access to information about agreements with Posten Bring, as well as GDPR-sensitive customer data.

To address this, we strongly recommend that you call our Tracking API from the backend instead of via the browser. This way, this information will not be exposed. We advise you to promptly delete the current API key and generate a new one here: https://www.mybring.com/useradmin/account/settings/api

If it is not feasible to call our APIs from the backend and you are entirely dependent on doing so via the browser, we recommend creating a new user account not associated with your customer numbers. You can create such an account here: https://www.mybring.com/useradmin/account/settings/api

Please note that starting from May 2, 2024, we will reject browser calls associated with a customer number to enhance security.

: Booking API - Changes in weight limit for Pickup Parcel (0340) and Pickup Parcel Bulk (0342) to Denmark

On February 29th 2024, we are adjusting the weight limit for bookings of Pickup Parcel (0340) and Pickup Parcel Bulk (0342) to Denmark in the Booking API.

What is changing?
Starting from February 29th, all bookings exceeding 20 kg (i.e. where the “weightInKg” field exceeds 20) for Pickup Parcel (0340) and Pickup Parcel Bulk (0342) will be rejected by the Booking API. Despite not being in line with our current terms stating a max weight of 20 kg, these bookings have been accepted in our API and later converted to Home Delivery Parcel 0349 with a special handling fee of 125 DKK. The new max weight of 20 kg aims to increase end customer satisfaction by minimizing the number of bookings that must be converted from Pickup Parcel (0340/0342) to Home Delivery Parcel (0349).

What should you do?
No need to worry! If you need to book parcels weighing over 20 kg, use Home Delivery Parcel (0349), which allows you to send parcels up to 35 kg. If for some reason there is a difference between the weight provided via the Booking API and the weight measured when the parcel reaches our terminal, we will still append a special handling fee and convert to Home Delivery Parcel (0349).

What if I have any questions?
You’re more than welcome to reach out to us via checkoutdk@bring.com. We’re here to assist in case you have any questions about the change, our APIs in general, or how to make the most of Bring in your checkout process.

: Booking API - Changes in Pickup Order API format

On January 10, 2024, we are changing the API request format for pickupDetails in the Pickup Order request. The new Pickup Order request format uses the package, pallet and postContainer field to give information on packages, pallets and postContainers. Each of these has a count field, weightInGrams field and volumeInDm3 field. See Order a pickup for request examples in json/xml.

This enables weight and volume to be given on each goods item level, instead of as a total.

Deprecation of Unauthenticated Open Tracking API

Our customers are increasingly demanding new functionality and solutions that are easy to use. To meet these expectations, we must know which customers and partners are using our APIs and how they are using them. To further develop the value proposition of our Tracking API, the solution will require authentication. Read here on how to make authenticated requests.

From 15 August 2023, we will start rate liming the requests.

If you see following error message that means you are being rate limited, and you should start using authenticated requests.

429 - Too many requests. We are now rate limiting our unauthenticated users, to prevent this make sure your requests are authenticated. Read more about this on our Bring developer site. https://developer.bring.com/api/tracking/

Yesterday a new pickup point type for Sweden was launched (type “39”), but it was incorrectly named as “iBoxen paketbox”. The correct name is “Bring paketbox”, while the name “iBoxen paketbox” refers to the existing type “38”.

Sorry about the confusion.

Pickup Point API - New pickup point type in Sweden

A new pickup point type “39” (iBoxen paketbox) is now supported for Sweden

Booking API (Pickup Order)

Starting 1 February 2023, maximum weight for a pickup order for cargo shipments in Norway will be set to 9999 kg chargeable weight. This limit corresponds to the existing chargeable weight limit for a groupage shipment. Shipments above 9999kg are handled as a door-to-door direct transport service (partload) and, hence, are not eligible for the pickup order service. More information about our service terms and conditions can be found in our Transport Guide

ShippingGuide API

The Same day delivery VAS (2012) allows shipments to be delivered same or next-day, depending on when the shipment is booked. By default, SG API returns the full service coverage area for Same day delivery.

The “sortingAreas” tag allows the web shop to reduce the delivery area to the area they currently choose to provide the service.

The “routeInformation” tag ontains information about the sorting area for a specific parcel. Intended use is to aid pre-sorting of same day parcels.

For more information read https://developer.bring.com/api/shipping-guide_2/#sorting-area-for-same-day-delivery-2012

PickupPoint API

Pakkeboks pickup points (unit type: 37) in Norway now shows photos of the location. This can be used to assist the end user to find the placement of the pakkeboks at the address.

Booking API

Important: We’ll soon stop supporting API access on the https://www.mybring.com/booking/api base URL. Please use https://api.bring.com/booking/api instead, if you aren’t already.

Shipping Guide API

Lead time does not only depend on the recipient’s postal code, but also the address itself.

For example, two different addresses on the same postal code can have different lead time. We have therefore added an addressLine field, which allows lead time to be calculated based on both postal code and street address. For this to work, it is important that recipients fill out a valid street address.

By using our Address API, the address the recipients fill inn can be pre-validated, which will ensure more accurate lead times.We therefore recommend using the Address API in combination with Shipping Guide API.

There are several services that are affected by this new field: 1000, 1988, 3500, 5000, 1736, 5600, 0330, 0332, 0349, 3570, 3584

<ns:AddressLine>Testsvingen 12</ns:AddressLine>
