Get Delivery Estimates

Before you begin, make sure you have an active Dora API store token. If you don’t have one, please login into your dora account, create a store custom store and copy the generated token for that store.

Integration Steps

Integrating Dora’s Delivery Estimates API into your application is straightforward. Follow these simple steps to get started:

  1. Include the Dora API script in your HTML:
<script type="application/javascript" src=""></script>
  1. Implement the checkout() function in your JavaScript to trigger the delivery estimate widget.

  2. Customize the checkout object with the necessary parameters such as sender address, customer details, delivery information, and callbacks.

  3. Call the checkout.setup() method to prepare the widget.

  4. Finally, use the method to display the widget and retrieve delivery estimates when the “Get Estimates” button is clicked.

Here’s a sample HTML and JavaScript code snippet to help you get started:

<button onclick="checkout()">Get Estimates</button>
<script type="application/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="application/javascript">
    function checkout() {
        const checkout = new Dora.GetEstimate({
            "sender_address": "10 John Street, Ipaja, Lagos",
            "customer_name": "TundeNasri",
            "customer_email": "",
            "customer_state_id": 4,

            onSuccess(response) {
            onError(error) {
            onClose(event) {
                console.log("Widget closed", { event });
