Integrating shipping data

Post by anoon » Tue Jun 11, 2024 4:53 am

I've written an app to compile shipping costs for each suburb and postcode in Australia using the Border Express API. I'd ideally like to be able to code the integration of this data to Joomla. Let's say there are 4 columns in a CSV... Suburb, Postcode, State, Price. How would I get this data into Joomla? Is there and API I could use? An upload? If so do I need a specific format?

I'm a newbie to Joomla so forgive me if the answer is obvious!!

It's unclear for what purpose you need this. If you want to integrate this into an ecommerce extension, you have to write a plugin for that specific extension. Data format can be anything, it will be accessed only by your code. If dataset is large, it might be most practical to store it in a database.
