UPS rates not correct


dalejrfan8

Recommended Posts

Hi. First time posting here.

 

I have a website where I am offering shipping through UPS and USPS. The USPS rates are working correctly.

 

The UPS rates are off by about $1.00 or a little bit more.

 

The module was downloaded, but do I need to hook up with an API on UPS like I had to with USPS?

 

Thanks for your help!

The UPS shipping module is built in. You do not need to register an account with them.

 

Here are some of the reasons your prices can be off:

 

1. Residential delivery is about $1.25 more than Commercial, so you can try to change this setting.

 

2. UPS charges more depending on the pickup method you have selected. For instance, a "ONE TIME PUCKUP" is the most expencive, so this adds to the final cost.

 

3. Are you usign UPS packaging or your own? This can make a slight difference in price.

 

However, what I have found out is that I can never get it on the "exact" postage that they charge me. I think it is because I live in the City and I have LOTS of trucks all around at any time so my prices tend to be lower than the UPS module says - no matter what setting I put it on.

 

I hope that helps.
