FAQ’S

How do I get a YRC Freight account number?

Call YRC Freight at 800-610-6500.

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

If you’ve forgotten your username and password, email YRC Freight at ecomm@yrcfreight.com or call 1-800-548-0435 to request the information. If you have your username but forgot your password, go to my.yrc.com and click the Forgot your password link. If you have a YRC Freight account number but have never had a username and password to my.yrc.com, you can go there to register for them.

What is a YRC Freight Business ID and how do I get mine?

The Business ID is not your account number. It is a separate number that YRC Freight issues to account holders for the purpose of accessing their APIs. Click on the Documentation tab on this page and refer to Step 4 for detailed instructions on how to obtain it.

How do I get a license key for the plugin?

You must register your installation of the plugin, regardless of whether you are taking advantage of the trial period or purchased a license outright. At the conclusion of the registration process an email will be sent to you that will include the license key. You can also login to eniture.com using the username and password you created during the registration process and retrieve the license key from the My Licenses tab.

How do I change my plugin license from the trial version to one of the paid subscriptions?

Login to eniture.com and navigate to the My Licenses tab. There you will be able to manage the licensing of all of your Eniture Technology plugins. Refer to the Documentation tab on this page for more thorough instructions.

How do I install the plugin on another website?

The plugin has a single site license. To use it on another website you will need to purchase an additional license. If you want to change the website with which the plugin is registered, login to eniture.com and navigate to the My Licenses tab. There you will be able to change the domain name that is associated with the license key.

Do I have to purchase a second license for my staging or development site?

No. Each license allows you to identify one domain for your production environment and one domain for your staging or development environment. The rate estimates returned in the staging environment will have the word “Sandbox” appended to them.

Why isn’t the plugin working on my other website?

If you can successfully test your credentials from the Connection page (WooCommerce > Settings > YRC Freight > Connections) then you have one or more of the following licensing issues: 1) You are using the license key on more than one domain. The licenses are for single sites. You will need to purchase an additional license. 2) Your trial period has expired. 3) Your current license has expired and we have been unable to process your form of payment to renew it. Login to eniture.com and go to the My Licenses tab to resolve any of these issues.

Why were the shipment charges I received on the invoice from YRC Freight different than what was quoted by the plugin?

Common reasons include one of the shipment parameters (weight, dimensions, freight class) is different, or additional services (such as residential delivery) were required. Compare the details of the invoice to the shipping settings on the products included in the shipment. Consider making changes as needed. Remember that the weight of the packing materials is included in the billable weight for the shipment. If you are unable to reconcile the differences call YRC Freight Customer Service (800-610-6500) for assistance.

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

There are several possibilities:

  • YRC has restrictions on a shipment’s maximum weight which your shipment may have exceeded.
  • There wasn’t enough information about the freight class, weight or dimensions for the products in the shopping cart to retrieve a shipping rate estimate.
  • The YRC Rate Quote API isn’t operational.
  • Your YRC Freight account has been suspended or cancelled.
  • Your Eniture Technology license key for this plugin has expired.
