Extracting PDF Document Data


The GetPackageLabels, GetUniquePackageLabels, GetPalletLabels, and GetBillOfLading operations return PDF document data for printing shipping labels and carrier labels for an inbound shipment. Amazon compresses PDF document data before returning it as a Base64-encoded string. To obtain the actual PDF document, you must decode the Base64-encoded string, save it as a binary file with a “.zip” extension, and then extract the PDF file from the ZIP file. These operations also return a Base64-encoded MD5 hash to validate the document data.
