Shipping Methods

The Shipping Methods page provides a way to integrate into Fedex, UPS or USPS servers to return live retail rates and configurable options.  The system reads the ship to zip code as well as both the base price tables and order options tables to calculate the total weight and price.  You can also configure the system to use fixed rates in combination with live rates or by itself.

Configuring Live Rates
Contact your shipping providers to apply for access to live rates API.

  1. https://www.fedex.com/en-us/developer.html
  2. https://www.ups.com/upsdeveloperkit
  3. https://www.usps.com/business/web-tools-apis/

When you receive your account credentials enter them into the providers panels provided on the page and save changes.

Configuring a Fixed Rate
Fixed rates can be used in combination of live rates or by themselves.  To add a fixed rate option click “Add Fixed Rate” and enter the description label that will show online as well as the price.
