How do I activate UPS shipping in Nexternal, so that I can pull live rates, ship packages, and print shipping labels?
You will first need to set up an account with UPS. Next, you will need to activate your UPS OnLine® Tools. To do this, in your Nexternal OMS, navigate to Settings / Compatible Software / UPS OnLine® Tools / Register. Click "I agree" for the User Terms, and fill in the appropriate data in the Company Information and UPS Account Information sections. (Note - if you will not be shipping with UPS, and are activating this connection for other purposes, such as address validation, you do not need to create a UPS account or complete that section). In the User ID/Password section, create a company-wide User ID and Password for use with this UPS OnLine Tools registration. These must be separate and distinct from any other User ID/Password combination you may have with UPS (so it should NOT match your UPS online registration). Note that the Password must be at least 6 characters long.
Second, navigate to Settings / Shipping to configure the UPS methods you would like to allow.
