FAQ’S

How do I get this application?

This application can only be installed from the Shopify App Store. Click here to locate the app in the Shopify App Store and then click the GET button to install the app. You must have the Shopify store owner credentials to perform the installation.

How do I get a UPS account number?

Contact them at 800-742-5877, or register online.

Where do I find my UPS.com username and password?

Contact UPS customer service at 800-742-5877 or the UPS account manager assigned to your account.

Where do I get my UPS API Access Key?

Obtaining a UPS API Access Key is done on UPS.com and requires a few steps. Refer to the Documentation tab on this page for detailed instructions.

Why were the shipment charges I received on the invoice from UPS different than what was quoted by the application?

The rates will be the same if the shipment parameters used to obtain the quote are exactly the same as those that were used for the invoice. Compare the shipment parameters in the application with those on the invoice. Pay close attention to product weight, dimensions and various accessorial fees like residential delivery. Consider making changes as needed. Remember that the weight of packaging materials is included in the weight of the shipment and that your use of box size may also have an impact on the shipment’s billable weight. If you are unable to reconcile the differences call UPS for assistance.

Why do I sometimes get a message that a shipping rate estimate couldn’t be provided?

There are several possibilities:

UPS has restrictions on a shipment’s maximum weight, length and girth which your shipment may have exceeded.

There wasn’t enough information about the weight or dimensions for the products in the shopping cart to retrieve a shipping rate estimate.

The city entered for the shipping address may not be valid for the postal code entered. A valid City+State+Postal Code combination is required to retrieve a rate estimate and Shopify does not perform this level of address validation. Contact us by phone (404-369-0680) or email (support@eniture.com) to inquire about solutions to this problem.

The UPS web service isn’t operational.

Your UPS account has been suspended or cancelled.

Your subscription to the application has expired because payment could not be processed.

There is an issue with the Eniture Technology servers.

There is an issue with the Shopify servers.

The discount percentages and minimum charges that Shopify offers for UPS through Shopify Shipping will pre-populate the page. You can edit these values if you wish. To restore the settings to their preset values, click the Restore Shopify discounts link at the bottom of the page.

Shopify planSelect the Shopify plan you subscribe to.
DiscountsThe preset values for discounts will reflect what Shopify offers to the plan you identified.
MinimumsThe preset values for minimums will reflect what Shopify offers for the plan you identified. A minimum is the minimum charge permitted for a given service. For example, ground service may have a discount of 10% and a minimum of $7.57. If the list price for ground service for a particular shipment is $8.00, then the net price would be $7.20. In this case the minimum charge of $7.57 would be used instead since the net price is less.

Make sure you save your settings before advancing to the next step.

5. Identify your warehouse and drop ship locations.

Return to top.

Click the Add button in the appropriate sections to add warehouse and drop ship locations. Warehouses should have a complete inventory of all products not otherwise identified as drop shipped items. If you have more than one warehouse defined, the warehouse closest to the shopper will be used to retrieve shipping rate estimates.

Drop ship locations usually represent vendors that supply items that you don’t inventory. These items are shipped directly to your customer on your behalf. When an order includes drop shipped items, the shopping cart will display a single figure for the shipping rate estimate that is equal to the sum of the cheapest option for each shipment required to fulfill the order.

Click on the Advanced plan required text to upgrade your plan and gain access to the feature. You must be signed into Shopify with the Store Owner credentials to perform the upgrade.

This feature is commonly used by merchants who have perishable products and need to prevent Ground service from displaying as an option when the shipment transit time exceeds a certain number of days.

In the box provided, enter the maximum number days your products can be in transit. Leave blank to disable this feature.

Pick the option to Restrict by the carrier’s in transit days metric to apply the rule based on the carrier’s in transit days estimate. Carriers cite the in transit days as business days. Choose this option if you will hold an order until a ship date occurs upon which the order can be shipped and not be delayed by weekends or holidays.

Pick the option to Restrict by the calendar days in transit if you want the determination of whether or not to display Ground service as an option to account for weekends and holidays. Choose this option if you always ship orders at the first opportunity to do so.

Residential DeliveryCheck this checkbox if you want your rate estimates to include the residential delivery fee.
Automatically Detect and Quote Residential DeliveryThe Standard Plan or higher is required to use this feature. If you aren’t on the Standard Plan or higher the words Standard plan required will be displayed. Click on the Standard plan required text to upgrade your plan and gain access to the feature. You must be signed into Shopify with the Store Owner credentials to perform the upgrade.

Each order’s shipping address is referenced against a USPS database to determine if it is a residential address. If it is, the returned shipping rate estimates will automatically include the carrier’s residential delivery fee.

If you aren’t on the Standard Plan or higher the words Standard plan required will be displayed. Click on the Standard plan required text to upgrade your plan and gain access to the feature. You must be signed into Shopify with the Store Owner credentials to perform the upgrade.

When enabled the app will not return rates when it detects that the address is a post office box. The identification of a post office box is performed by text string matches to “PO Box”, “P.O. Box” and a number of other probable representations. This method is not infallible or guaranteed. It will not interfere with the presentation of shipping methods by other apps.

Only quote ground service for hazardous materials shipmentsThe Standard Plan or higher is required to use this feature. If you aren’t on the Standard Plan or higher the words Standard plan required will be displayed. Click on the Standard plan required text to upgrade your plan and gain access to the feature. You must be signed into Shopify with the Store Owner credentials to perform the upgrade.

Check this box if you only want ground service quoted in the event that one or more of the products in the shopping cart is identified as hazardous material.

Ground Hazardous Material FeeThe Standard Plan or higher is required to use this feature. If you aren’t on the Standard Plan or higher the words Standard plan required will be displayed. Click on the Standard plan required text to upgrade your plan and gain access to the feature. You must be signed into Shopify with the Store Owner credentials to perform the upgrade.

Enter in the amount that should be added to the ground rate estimate in the event that one or more of the products in the shopping cart is identified as hazardous material. The fee will only be added once per shipment.

Handling Fee / Mark UpIncreases the amount of each returned quote by a specified amount prior to displaying it/them in the shopping cart. The number entered will be interpreted as dollars and cents unless it is followed by a % sign. For example, entering 5.00 will cause $5.00 to be added to the quotes. Entering 5.00% will cause each quote to be multiplied by 1.05 (= 1 + 5%).
Rate SourceChoose whether or not you want the rates retrieved to include your negotiated discount. If not, the rate retrieved will match what is documented in the UPS Daily Rate and Service Guide.

6. Define and enable your standard box sizes (Optional).

Return to top.
The Box Sizes tab allows you to identify your standard box sizes so they can be used to calculate a packaging solution that mirrors what should occur during order fulfillment. Enabling this feature will result in a charge of 3 cents per calculation. We highly recommend this feature if your operation uses standard box sizes. It ensures that your customers will receive the most accurate rates possible, and the packaging solution is saved with the order so it can be viewed while the order is being packed.Example of packaging solution graphic
The standard box size packaging solution is accessed from the Order Details page. It provides an illustration of the final solution, and step by step illustrations on how each item should be oriented and placed in the box.

If you decide not to use this feature the app will use a free proprietary algorithm that assumes that an infinite number of box sizes are available and identifies what can be thought of as an optimal packaging solution. This is a suitable alternative for companies that don’t inventory standard box sizes and can still be subject to dimensional weight rules. If you will be relying on the optimal packaging solution algorithm you can skip to the next section of the user’s guide.

Enable checkboxCheck this box to enable the standard box sizes feature. While enabled a charge of 3 cents for each calculated packaging solution will be incurred unless the capped amount for the billing cycle has been reached. If the capped amount has been reached you can re-enable the feature by increasing the capped amount.
Current usageShows the usage of the feature at the time the page loads.
Capped amountThe amount entered into this field is the maximum you can be charged for the standard box size feature in a billing cycle. If this amount is reached the feature will stop working and the optimal packaging solution algorithm will be used instead. This may effect the accuracy of your shipping rates. You can increase the capped amount to re-enable the feature.
Notification email addressAn email will be sent to the email address entered when the usage of the standard box sizes feature is 80% of the capped amount. Taking action to increase the capped amount immediately after receiving the email will mitigate the risk of the feature being disabled which can otherwise lead to less accurate shipping quotes.
Save buttonClicking the save button will save changes made to the fields located above the button provided the changes pass the field level validation..
Add Box buttonClicking this button will display a form for use to capture the box parameters.

NicknameEnter a nickname for the box. This will be used to identify the box in the graphical representation of the packaging solution.
LengthEnter the length in inches.
WidthEnter the width in inches.
HeightEnter the height in inches
Max WeightEnter the maximum weight, in pounds, that the box can hold.
Box WeightEnter the weight of the box in pounds.

8. Enter the product shipping parameters.

Return to top.

Now that the application settings have been established, it’s time enter the product settings. Repeat these instructions for every product that you want to ship via UPS. Select Products from the Shopify menu. Locate the product on the list and choose it by clicking on it. You’ll be delivered to the product’s details page. Click on the More actions button located at the top right hand corner of the page and select the app.

You’ll be delivered to a page on which you’ll enter the product’s shipping parameters. Enter the information prompted for, and then click the Save & Return button at the bottom of the page to return to the product’s Shopify product details page.

Quote as a parcel shipmentCheck the box for this quote method if you want the item to be quoted as a parcel shipment by default.
Quote as an LTL freight shipmentThis option will display if you also have one of Eniture Technology’s LTL Freight Quote apps installed. Check the box for this quote method if you want the item to be quoted as an LTL freight shipment by default.
Freight ClassFreight Class is relevant to LTL freight shipments. If you have installed one of Eniture Technology’s LTL Freight Quotes apps, its a good idea to set this parameter, even if the product normally ships UPS. When there are products in the cart that ship both parcel and LTL freight, or the weight of the order exceeds the maximum weight accepted by UPS, the order will be quoted as LTL freight. Having the appropriate Freight Class identified improves the accuracy of the quoted shipping rates in these instances.
WeightEnter the weight of the product in pounds. It should include the weight of any packaging materials that may be required to ship the product, such as cardboard, bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts.
LengthEnter the length of the product in inches. It should include any incremental inches added by packaging materials that may be required to ship the product.
WidthEnter the width of the product in inches. It should include any incremental inches added by packaging materials that may be required to ship the product.
HeightEnter the height of the product in inches. It should include any incremental inches added by packaging materials that may be required to ship the product.
Allow item to be rotated vertically when placing it in a boxThis setting requires the optional Standard Box Sizes feature to be enabled.
Enabling this setting allows the item to be rotated while identifying a packaging solution involving standard box sizes. This setting provides the most flexibility for arriving at a solution.
This item ships in its own packagingThis setting requires the optional Standard Box Sizes feature to be enabled.
Enabling this setting prevents the item from being combined with other items into one of the standard box sizes. The item will be included in the shipment as its own package with the weight and dimensions specified.
Item subject to additional handling feeCheck this box if the product is subject to UPS’s additional handling fee. If checked the fee will be included in the rate estimate when this product is in the shopping cart.
Hazardous MaterialThe Standard Plan or higher is required to use this feature. If you aren’t on the Standard Plan or higher the words Standard plan required will be displayed. Click on the Standard plan required text to upgrade your plan and gain access to the feature. You must be signed into Shopify with the Store Owner credentials to perform the upgrade.

Check this checkbox if this item must be identified as hazardous material. If so, when the item is included in the cart, the hazardous material fee identified in the quote settings will be added to the rate estimate.

Drop ship this productCheck this box if this item is drop shipped from a location other than your warehouse.
Drop ship locationDisplays only when the Drop ship this product checkbox is checked.
Select the drop ship location from the drop down. These locations are defined on the Warehouses tab in the app settings that was described in step 5
.
InsuranceThe Standard Plan or higher is required to use this feature. If you aren’t on the Standard Plan or higher the words Standard plan required will be displayed.

Enable this setting to have the carrier’s declared value insurance premium included in the shipping quotes when this item is in the cart.

What your customer sees.

Return to top.

Once you’ve completed the three preceding steps, your Shopify store is ready to begin quoting UPS services. To ensure the best possible outcome, it is highly recommended that weight and dimensions be entered for every product you sell. The exact presentation of the rates in the checkout process will depend on the options selected in the Quote Settings. The illustration below shows an example with multiple service options enabled.

product-settings

What you see.

Return to top.

The app populates shipping related information in the Additional details widget on the Order Details page. The content varies on whether or not the optional Standard Box Sizes feature is enabled. Content falls into two categories: 1) Shipment Origin & Services; and 2) Shipment Content.

Shipment Origin & Services

This information block will identify the shipment origin, the selected carrier service and a list of any additional services (such as residential delivery) associated with the shipment. A separate Shipment Origin & Services information block will appear for each shipping location that will participate in fulfilling the order. This is particularly useful for stores with multiple warehouses and drop ship locations.

Shipment Content

A Shipment Content information block is presented beneath each Shipment Origin & Services information block. It identifies the products that will ship from that location.

If the optional Standard Box Sizes feature is enabled, a separate Shipment Content information block will be present for each box in the shipment. Each information block will identify the box’s nickname, its dimensions and its contents. This information is available graphically by clicking on the More Actions button at the top of the Order Detail page and selecting the Packaging Solution option.

A graphic will be presented illustrating the packaging solution. Each box will have an illustration of it fully packed and step by step illustrations on how each item should be placed in the box.

Updating products with the Import CSV Utility.

Return to top.

You can use the app’s Import CSV utility to enter or update the product shipping parameters. This method can be more time efficient than navigating in and out of the app’s user interface, particularly if you have a lot of products. (View the 5 minute instructional video)

Navigate to the Import CSV tab in the app preferences.

Click the template link to download the CSV template file and open it in Excel or a similar application. Each row of the spreadsheet represents one of your products or product variants. You can’t use the Import CSV utility to create products in Shopify. The products must exist in Shopify prior to downloading the CSV template if they are to be updated. Eniture Technology publishes apps that provide quotes for Small Package (parcel) and LTL Freight. The template can be used for both categories of apps. If you have more than one of Eniture Technology’s quoting apps installed, you only need to import the file once.

When you receive the CSV template file, save a copy of it as a backup, particularly if you have product shipping parameters already present. You can use the backup file to restore your product shipping parameters to their previous state in the event you make a mistake with y
