georgecvsc Posted June 30, 2007 Share Posted June 30, 2007 Look at "How do I get a developers key?" on this page http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/resources...oper%27s+Key%3F.Or just google ups developer key and there will be instructions. First you have to register at UPS then they pretty much hand it to you. If you have problems past that I would recommend calling UPS. Thanks. I had already read that FAQ, but still had trouble finding the right page. I called UPS and they wouldn't talk to me on the phone about it. They said to use their contact form. I did and I eventually got an answer. The following 19-step procedure from UPS tech support will net a developer key and an access key. Step #2 is the key. If you don't start on that page you won't find the key. (Sounds like an old computer game I used to play.) I also learned if you use the "contact us" page and choose "tech support" your ticket does not go directly to tech support. You're supposed to request online tool tech support at www.ups.com/e_comm_access/toolsupport Procedure to get developer and access keys: 1. Open your desired Internet browser. 2. Access the UPS web site at http://www.ups.com/onlinetools. 3. Click on the [Register] button, located to the right of the screen. 4. In the “Complete Information for My UPS Registration” box, enter your name, e-mail, User ID and Password. Click on [Next]. 5. Once you have read through and understood the "UPS Terms and Conditions" page, click on the [Accept ->] button. 6. Fill in the fields on the "UPS: Registration" screen under "Complete Form for My UPS Registration". All fields labeled in bold print are required. All other fields are optional. To receive notices of future releases of OnLine Tools, select [Yes] to receive notices. UPS respects your privacy and will not send unsolicited emails to you. 7. Click on the [submit] button at the bottom of the window. 8. Once registered for My UPS, click on the [business Solutions] tab. 9. Under the “Business Technology Solutions” section, click on [uPS OnLine Tools]. 10. On the “UPS OnLine Tools” page, click on [Get OnLine Tools]. 11. In the gray box for “Standard Tools,” select the specific tool you would like. 12. The next screen looks like a registration screen; however, it is actually looking for additional information including your UPS account number. Once the information is entered and verified, click on the [submit] button at the bottom of the window. 13. In the gray box on the next webpage, you will be given your confirmation of the standard tools you have successfully registered for. Your Developer’s Key will be e-mailed to you in just a few moments, so please leave this screen open and monitor your e-mail until you receive the Developer’s Key. 14. Once you receive the Developer’s Key in the e-mail, copy it and click on the standard tool that most applies to you. 15. On the next webpage, you can request your Access Key. Click on [Get Access Key] on the right side of the screen. 16. Select the type of Access Key you desire, “XML” or “HTML.” If you are going to use a shopping cart, you will probably want to select XML Access Key unless otherwise directed by the shopping cart vendor. 17. Enter your Developer’s Key and click on [submit]. 18. Once again, verify that all the information in the bold type fields is accurate and complete on the “Provide Additional Information” page and click on [submit]. 19. Your Access Key will appear on the screen. It will also be sent to the default e-mail address in your UPS.com profile. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
