FEDEX Realtime Shipping Rates seem Very High


Recommended Posts

I just got FedEx realtime shipping rates installed.


I am getting very high shipping rates via their API. For instance, I have a 5 lbs box and I setup an address across the city to a different zip code and it is returning $54.83 for shipping.


Is there something I did wrong? Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this?


Thank You,

I think I figured out my problem. I have the mandatory insurance set at anything over $100 and the item I was testing with had a $10,000 value, so I think the high rates was due to the insurance.


It would be nice to have this broken out in a seperate line and make it optional. I think I will just add a header to the shipping section that states all items are quoted with mandatory insurance and to contact us if you want to order without shipping insurance.
