Shipping with UPS in ChannelGrabber requires a UPS credit account. We cannot take payments for shipping labels through our platform and so a pay-as-you-go account will not work here. If you encounter any difficulties below, check what type of account you have with UPS, and contact them to apply for a credit account if required.
Connecting with UPS
Our UPS integration works through a third party called ShipEngine, who only support shipping from the US, UK, Canada and Australia at this time.

Creating & Printing UPS Labels in ChannelGrabber
If you have not already done so, we recommend that you should set up Shipping Aliases to automate as much of this process as possible by setting default couriers and shipping services for your orders.
