Amazon SQS (Simple Queue Service. is a web service that provides a queuing mechanism for storing messages or data, and then sending them to another computer system on demand. Amazon SQS can be used by other AWS components such as EC2 and S3, but can also be used standalone to build distributed systems. An example of this is Shippo's integration with Amazon SQS.Shippo is a shipping API that allows its users to ship with major carriers such as USPS, FedEx, UPS, and DHL. Shippo's integration with Amazon SQS allows users to store their shipping labels into an Amazon SQS queue, and then ship those labels from multiple endpoints at once via the Shippo API.
One of the ways that Shippo and Amazon SQS work together is by combining the two services' abilities to create, send, and receive messages. First, a user creates a label in Shippo and then sends it to an Amazon SQS queue. After the label is sent to the queue, it is stored there until it reaches a certain number of messages, which is called a "batch size." Once the batch size is reached, the label is pulled out of the queue and sent to the appropriate shipping carrier, such as USPS or FedEx.The integration between Shippo and Amazon SQS also extends beyond simply creating an Amazon SQS queue with messages labeled for certain shipping carriers. The integration also consists of automatically receiving tracking updates from various shipping carriers and storing them in the same Amazon SQS queue as the original label. This allows for users to have their shipments tracked throughout the whole process. This feature is especially useful when it comes to fulfilling orders through Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA. These shipments are put into an FBA labeled Amazon SQS queue so they can be shipped as soon as they are picked up by Amazon for fulfillment.
An advantage of integrating Amazon SQS with Shippo is that it gives users the ability to ship packages from multiple endpoints at once. This allows for more efficiency since it takes less time to ship all the packages from a single location rather than having to ship them individually from multiple locations. Another benefit of integrating these two services is that users can now track their shipments throughout the whole process. This eliminates the need for customers to constantly check their tracking number if they are being fulfilled by Amazon using FBA.Another benefit of using Shippo and Amazon SQS together is that users can now create shipping labels directly from within their applications. This saves shipping companies time because they do not have to manually create these labels. A final benefit of integrating these two services is that users can now get real-time shipment tracking updates from multiple shipping carriers. This saves time because users do not have to manually go check their shipments' status on each carrier's website.
