Newgistics Fulfillments System API
>>> from newgistics import NewgisticsFulfillment

>>> ngf_client = NewgisticsFulfillment(api_key='<NG-Fulfillments-API-Key>', staging=False)
>>> ngf_client.inbound_returns.create(payload=request_payload)
    <Response [200]>
Newgistics REST Web API
>>> from newgistics import NewgisticsWeb

>>> ngw_client = NewgisticsWeb(api_key='<NG-Web-API-Key>', staging=False)

    <Response [200]>

You can pass the api_key explicitly. Alternatively, you may declare these environment variables NG_FL_API_KEY and/or NG_WEB_API_KEY.

About Newgistics

Newgistics provides services and technology to support the e-commerce operations of retailers around the world. Its offerings include software and services to build and maintain e-commerce websites, perform order fulfillment, and manage parcel delivery and returns. This package reduces the shortcomings/difficulties whule integrating Newgistics's APIs. It's still not what I'd appreciate, but it should just work! Looking for your active contribution to the project (See roadmap below)


For any wrapper related query/issue, please raise a GitHub issue.



Integrating with 3PL APIs like Newgistics(owned by PitneyBowes) can be pain at times. For instance, some APIs are XML only, whereas some can accept JSON as payload but return a XML response


1. Write Tests with a token from Newgistics(Observation: staging and production tokens are same on NG)
2. Cover more APIs from both Web & Fulfillment
3. Return better objects, eg: every function returns a python requests's Response object
4. Overall code and design improvements
