This article assumes that you already have a UPS account that receives negotiated rates. If you do not have a UPS account and/or negotiated rates, you will need to set that up first. Visit ups.com for more information.
We willl first setup UPS Live Shipping Rates, then get an Access License Number from ups.com, and last copy and paste the Access License Number into the UPS settings on AmeriCommerce.
When this feature is not properly configured (i.e. with invalid account information) it will cause the system to not return shipping rates. This feature also requires the full shipping address to return shipping rates.
