United Parcel Service offers domestic and international shipping services by land and air to more than 220 countries.
Step 1: Open a UPS Shipping Account
To offer this service to buyers, you must have a UPS shipping account and register online at the UPS website.
Once you have your UPS shipping and online accounts, obtain your UPS Access Key from the UPS Developer Kit page (Step 5 on the getting started list)
Step 2: Configure Your Store
1. Log in to DPD
2. For the store you want to enable UPS calculations for, go to Shipping in the left menu
3. Find the UPS shipping integration in the list and click "Add"
4. Enter the required information:
- UPS Username
- UPS Password
- UPS Access Key
- Postal Code you are shipping from
- Packaging Type
- Pickup Type
- Customer Classification
The customer classification determines which rates are displayed to your buyers. For example, if you entered your shipper number and get special rates from UPS you can choose to display those rates or display regular retail rates (to not pass your shipping discount on to your customers)
