Before we can move on to our primary objective of integrating UPS shipping into your Shopify store, we must first ensure that your StorePep account is up and running. Read our step by step guide on integrating your Shopify store with your StorePep account.
To integrate UPS carrier shipping into your Shopify store follow the steps given below:
1. Sign up with UPS:
Head on over to the UPS website and sign up for a profile. This video will guide you through the process of setting up your very own UPS Developer Account.
Before starting with the setup process, make sure that you have a shipping policy defined for your customers. Once you have your account in place and have completed the necessary steps, you can then switch back to your StorePep account.
From your Shopify dashboard, navigate to ‘Carriers’ and click on the ‘+’ sign next to it. You will get to choose from a number of carrier options including DHL, FedEx, and UPS. Click on UPS.
Key in your UPS Account Number, User ID, UPS Password, and Access Key in their respective fields and click on ‘Add’. You UPS carrier integration is now complete.
Once your Shopify store is connected to your StorePep account and UPS carrier integration is complete, you are all set to begin shipping out your orders. Your StorePep account will now provide you with the following benefits:
2. Real time shipping rates:
Your customers will have access to real time shipping rates offered by UPS at the time of checkout, saving you the hassle of having to manually check and update the price every time.
StorePep’s Automation Rules even allow you to customize the carrier options that you want displayed to the customer at the time of checkout. For example, in case you want to provide the ‘UPS Ground’ option only for shipments weighing more than 15 lbs, you can achieve this by tweaking the ‘Automation Rules’ in the ‘Shipping Rates’ menu. Simply create a new rule for the particular carrier or service of your choice and click on ‘Add Rule’.
Services on offer can even be changed based on a number of factors including Quantity, Weight, Price, etc,.
3. Bulk printing of UPS shipping labels:
On the StorePep dashboard, check for the ‘Processing’ tab. Simply select the order and click on ‘Create Label For Selected’.
A print-ready label will be auto-generated for you.
You can print these out by navigating to the ‘Label Batch’ option.
You can even create and run automated rules that define the way your labels are generated based on certain parameters of your choice.
4. Request UPS pickups for your Shopify orders:
Once the labels have been generated and printed out, you can request for a UPS pickup for your Shopify store orders from the ‘Label created’ and ‘Label Batch’ sections on your Storepep account.
5. Generating manifests:
Manifests for all your Shopify UPS orders can be generated, viewed, and printed from the ‘Manifests’ tab on your StorePep dashboard.
