A UPS Account is required to enable UPS shipping.

* If you have a valid UPS Account number:
You can directly configure it for this extension by entering your account details (such as account number, invoice amount, number and currency) in extension configuration. No need to involve any UPS Account Manager or Technical Helpline. UPS APIs will do the account verification in the background and, if successful, you can start shipping right away.
* If you do not have a UPS account:
You can directly and easily create one in the extension configuration without calling or waiting for any UPS representative. You can manage your invoices directly on the UPS Billing Center on ups.com after the account has been opened in the module.
