You can ship your products to your customers using UPS as a shipping method/API. UPS is one of the most popular shipping methods and is known world-wide. In order to set up your shop using UPS you will need to follow the instructions below.

Sign Up for a UPS Account

Firstly, you’ll need to set up a UPS account on their site here you must click the “Register” to begin setting up the account. This can be seen in the image below.

Go through the whole process of registering and logging-in and so on (follow the steps seen the in the above screenshot). Please note that step 3 and 4 can be ignored. The “Ratings” API has already been installed into the plugin. After login, you can skip to step 5 which is “Request an access key“. Click the link, you’ll be redirected to a page where it shows your primary account info, allows you to submit secondary info, and if you haven’t registered yet, has links for you to register.
