Configuring Shipping Defaults

Once you have completed UPS account setup, you can adjust the default shipping values and label output settings by choosing Defaults within the Preferences layout.

Shipment defaults can help you speed up shipment creation. Default Settings include everything from shipping account, service and package type - to default weights and delivery confirmation.

If you ship with the same box sizes on a regular basis and dimensional weight is a factor in your shipping rates, you'll want to add these defaults to save time as you prepare your shipments.

If you ship the same products internationally on a regular basis you'll want to add the product details to save time as you prepare international shipments.

You can set up email notifications for shipment, delivery and for any exceptions. You must have a sender email as part of the shipping address to allow for recipient notifications.

Where you can edit Address Management, Shipment Rating and Batch Processing.

  • Perform Automatic Address Validation - US addresses are validated using UPS Address validation prior to shipping. This feature can be toggled on and off here.
