    UPS Shipping: Multi-vendor Marketplace for Shopify

    Updated 26 February 2024

    Multi-vendor Marketplace app has come up with the UPS feature app to manage product shipping, track the packages & print shipping labels through the United Parcel Service (UPS).

    You can now visit the feature app section and enable the “UPS” feature app to let the sellers ship their products through UPS.

    For this, you need to have a UPS account as you need your account details to configure UPS shipping in the app. In addition to it, you can allow sellers to generate shipping labels of fulfilled orders through UPS.

    This feature of the Multivendor app will charge you an additional amount of $10 USD per month over and above your current Multivendor plan.

    To make UPS shipping feature work, you need to choose the Shopify store plan which supports the “Real-Time Carrier-Calculated Shipping”.

    Important Note:- “UPS Feature is available only in the Multivendor PRO ($60/month) Plan + You need to enable the “Shipping” Feature App which is FREE of cost.”

    THIS SHIPPING FEATURE APP IS USED FOR BOTH RATE CALCULATION AND FULFILLMENT.

    Note – New account users do not require UPS Access Keys. Once you configure the UPS Client_id and Client_secret Name, the system will automatically generate the Access token.

    By default, we show the negotiated shipping rates. However, in case the negotiated shipping rates are not present, we show the general shipping rate

    DEFAULT PICK-UP ADDRESS

    If there is an overseas order in UPS shipping the in case if you want both addresses i.e. “seller’s address and default pick up address saved in UPS dashboard” should be sent to the customer.

    Then you can enable “DEFAULT PICK UP ADDRESS ” from UPS configuration.

    Select the Usage-UPS Configuration

    While configuring the UPS details, you can now choose to Send To Merchant if you want to fulfill the order and generate shipping labels on your warehouse address.

    OR choose Both (Shipping+Fulfillment), if you want the sellers to manage the order fulfillment & generate shipping labels for customer’s orders.

    Go to Configuration>>UPS Configuration>>Select Usage As.

    Select either Send To Merchant OR Both (Shipping+Fulfillment) while configuring the UPS details.

    Let’s understand both cases.

    Case 1: Both (Fulfillment+Shipping)
    In this case, once an order is placed, the seller will be responsible to manage shipment & order fulfillment.

    Case 2: Send To Merchant
    This is the case when the admin adds his/her own warehouse address and manage the order fulfillment & shipping label.

    Once you choose this option, you will have the option to add a warehouse location.

    Clicking on the button, the admin will add location.

    Now, as soon as an order is placed, the seller will have the option to send the parcel to the admin for fulfillment.
    For this, the seller needs to visit the Order Listing section>>Select an Order>>Click View (Action). This will redirect the seller to the order detail page.

    In the fulfillment detail section, the seller needs to click the “Ship To Merchant” button to send the parcel to the admin.
