    Does your UPS Module support negotiates rates?
    Does this module calculate the box size needed for multiple items on an order and choose a box size we keep on hand?

      Thanks for writing to us your query.

      Well, we would like to inform you that our UPS Shipping module is completely based on API.

      Our module is a rate calculator which will display the rates calculated directly from UPS shipping method’s website based on admin’s shipping address and customer’s delivery address taking into consideration the mentioned product dimension and weight

      Note: Display of a particular shipping method will totally depend upon the API.

      In case you have any further queries related to this module, please raise a ticket at our support ticket system or you can mail us at [email protected].

      Good day!
