Estimates and bookable quotes

In order to provide a general idea of what shipping might cost at the early stages of product discovery, Arta’s API can provide both bookable and non-bookable quotes.

Bookable quotes are guaranteed by Arta for 30 days and require full address and object details. Non-bookable quotes are estimates that can be generated using less specific address details.

Each quote request response from Arta includes a Bookable flag that denotes whether the included quotes are bookable or are non-bookable estimates. If a request is not bookable, we’ll enumerate the missing fields required to book.
