How Our API & Shopping Cart Integration Works
One of the biggest pain points a customer faces after purchasing a new bulky item online such as a mattress or couch, is how how to get rid of the old one. In order to offer customers old item removal at point of purchase when they shop online, connect our API integration with your e-commerce platform of choice at no additional cost to you.
Connecting into our shopping cart integration is as easy as adding another product SKU!
✔️ Compatible E-commerce platforms with LoadUp Partner API
Our checkout API integrates with many trusted e-commerce platforms including:
- Custom Platforms
Regardless if you’re on another platform or you have a custom-built application, your developer can use our GraphQL API to integrate and automate our cart add-on services.
✨ Use a platform we directly support? You can typically easily get integrated yourself. No developer required! Reach out to our service team to get help with the set up in a brief call.
How does it integrate with my e-commerce platform?
The API adds our reverse logistics services, such as assembly and old mattress haul away, to your e-commerce store with a specific SKU just like any other product on your website.
As soon as your e-commerce is set up with our API, your nationwide customers (and your returns) get immediate access to assembly/disassembly, removal, and disposal services.
Your team will design and decide on the user interface, marketing, and price of the add-on services. Our teams of screened professionals and proprietary technology will handle the rest.
How does it work with my retail products?
When a purchase with an on add-on is made on your website, three things happen:
- The paid-for add-ons feed directly into our Drivers app.
- An automated scheduling email that can be in your brand is sent to the customer.
- The service appointment is then handled safely and professionally by our Loaders.

How does pricing work?
Adding our API integration to your shopping cart is free, but we do charge for our removal and set-up services at a fixed rate. But, you can up-sell our services to maximize revenue!
If you use one of our integrations, the prices are fixed in “packages.” Disposal rates and laws vary around the country, but to simplify things for our partners, the packages are priced using a blended rate where you pay the same price for that service nationwide.
No contract. Unless you’ve negotiated one separately – use us as much, or as little as you need.
By your company deciding on what you want to charge the customer for our service, you can off-set the cost of service and even profit from it.
