Lalamove API makes use of HMAC (SHA256) as the authentication mechanism.

You will be provided an api KEY, and a SECRET for generating a HMAC hash (also known as a SIGNATURE).

Sandbox & Production API keys

All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail.


Example in JavaScript

const time = new Date().getTime().toString(); // => `1545880607433`

const method = 'POST';
const path = '/v2/quotations';
const body = JSON.stringify({...}); // => the whole body for '/v2/quotations'

const rawSignature = `${time}\r\n${method}\r\n${path}\r\n\r\n${body}`;
// => '1546222219293\r\nPOST\r\n/v2/quotations\r\n\r\n{\n \"scheduleAt\": \"2018-12-31T14:30:00.00Z\",\n \"serviceType\": \"MOTORCYCLE\",\n \"requesterContact\": { \"name\": \"Peter Pan\", \"phone\": \"232\" },\n \"stops\": [\n {\n \"location\": { \"lat\": \"-6.255431000000001\", \"lng\": \"106.60114290000001\" },\n \"addresses\": {\n \"en_ID\": {\n \"displayString\":\n \"Jl.

// => '5133946c6a0ba25932cc18fa3aa1b5c3dfa2c7f99de0f8599b28c2da88ed9d42'


SIGNATURE is in lowercase hex (base 16) encoding.

SECRET Your API secret
TIMESTAMP Unix timestamp in milliseconds eg. 1545880607433
HTTP_VERB HTTP verb (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE) of the specific API call

Please visit Lalamove REST API Examples (Link) for more information.

Order Flow

Click the below diagram to enlarge.


Order Status

Dotted lines in the following diagram indicates possible status transition.


ASSIGNING_DRIVER Trying to match shipment with a driver.
ON_GOING A driver has accepted the order.
PICKED_UP The driver has picked up the order.
COMPLETED The order has been delivered sucessfully and transaction has concluded.
CANCELED User has canceled the order.
REJECTED The order was matched and rejected twice by two drivers in a row, see Order Flow.
EXPIRED The order expired as no drivers accepted the order.

Immediate vs Scheduled

Immediate Order

  //"scheduleAt": "2020-09-01T14:30:00.00Z",
  "serviceType": "MOTORCYCLE",
  "stops": [<Waypoint>],
  "deliveries": [<DeliveryInfo>],
  "requesterContact": <Contact>,
  "specialRequests": ["COD", "HELP_BUY", "LALABAG"]

Scheduled Order

  "scheduleAt": "2020-09-01T14:30:00.00Z",
  "serviceType": "MOTORCYCLE",
  "stops": [<Waypoint>],
  "deliveries": [<DeliveryInfo>],
  "requesterContact": <Contact>,
  "specialRequests": ["COD", "HELP_BUY", "LALABAG"]

Depending on your delivery needs, you can place an immediate order or a schedule order.

User Cancellation

An order can only be cancelled either:

  1. An order with the status ASSIGNING_DRIVER; or
  2. An order is matched less than 5 minutes - order status changed from ASSIGNING_DRIVER to ON_GOING less than 5 minutes ago. This holds regardless of the actual scheduleAt.

Driver Rejection

Orders can be rejected after they are matched to a driver. When this happens, the order status will revert from ON_GOING/ PICKED_UP to ASSIGNING_DRIVER. Lalamove system will try to match it again with a different driver. If an order has been rejected for the second time, the order status will be revised as REJECTED. Lalamove system will no longer broadcast this order to the driver pool - the system will stop matching a driver for this order.

Expired Orders

An order will be expired if it is not accepted by the driver. Depending the order type (immediate vs scheuduled) order expiry time varies.

Proof Of Delivery

(Revised in May, 2021)

Proof Of Delivery (POD) is a request that you can put when you placed the order. If you submit an order requesting POD, the driver will be notified to get signature(s) from the recipient(s) (or their delegates) as a proof of a success delivery.

If you want to enable POD for your delivery, please include "pod":true in the request body.

status in POD Description
PENDING Driver has not yet carried out proof of delivery for this stop.
SIGNED The recipient has signed.
DELIVERED The package has been delivered. Recipient (or delegates) did not sign.
FAILED The delivery failed.

Add Priority Fee




(Updated in February, 2021)

PUT /v2/orders/{id}/tips

Priority fees (commonly known as tips) are often used by customers to encourage drivers to accept an order.

  1. Priority fees can only be added before the driver accepts the order. This is the same logic as our user mobile and web app.
  2. Priority fees can be added to the same order on multiple occasions. However, please note the amount added subsequently must be greater than the previous one.
  3. The amount added as a priority fee each time will replace the previous amount. For example, if you were to add HKD10 the first time, followed by a subsequent priority fee of HKD20, the total amount of the priority fee would be HKD20 (as the second request supersedes the first request).




402 You do not have enough credits for the action, please top-up your wallet.


409 The amount you attempted to add does not reach the minimum amount allowed..

{ "message": "ERR_EXCEED_MIN_TIPS" }

409 The amount you attempted to add exceed the maximum amount allowed.

{ "message": "ERR_EXCEED_MAX_TIPS" }

409 The amount is invalid, e.g. trying to add HKD20.001 while 0.1 cent is not supported in Hong Kong OR you attempted to add an amount lower than or equal to previous requests.

{ "message": "ERR_INVALID_TIPS" }

409 You are trying to add priority fee beyond allowable order status(es).

Why do I keep getting 401 - Unauthorized error?

Make sure you are follow the instruction on Authentication closely.

rawSignatureWithBody = `${time}\r\n${method}\r\n${path}\r\n\r\n${body}`;
rawSignatureNoBody = `${time}\r\n${method}\r\n${path}\r\n\r\n`;
// the last \r\n\r\n is untouched

If you are having trouble with requests without body like get order details, make sure you leave the line break characters untouched.

You may also want to refer to Sample Code in the Introduction section.

Does Lalamove API offer webhooks?

Yes. We encourage our customers to utilise webhook for getting prompt updates and better experience. You will use the Partner Portal to setup webhooks.

How do I get notified when an order status has changed?

You are encouraged to use webhook to receive changes in orders status of your placed orders via API.

if you have difficulties in implementing webhooks, please perform polling on /v2/orders/<order_id> using CRON jobs at the maximum rate of 1 request per order per minute to detect status updates until the order is COMPLETED. This should be considered as the interim solution only.

Can I just place an order directly without getting a quotation everytime?

Technically yes. If you know the price in advance, for example there are some pre-defined routes that you have to perform deliveries on a regular basis. You can store the pricing in previous quotations and apply the price directly to POST /v2/orders as quotedTotalFee.

How can I get drivrers to take my orders placed in the sandbox environment?

You can change the orders' statuses in our Partnerย Portal as per the instruction in the welcome message.
