WooCommerce UPS plugin - installation
Once you downloaded the UPS plugin, you need to install it. You need to go to the Plugins → Add New section in your admin panel. Then click the Upload Plugin button.
Next step is to activate the plugin. Got it? OK, you are ready to configure it. Click the Settings link on the Plugins page.
You will be redirected to the plugin settings.
How to configure the WooCommerce UPS plugin
You need an UPS account. If you don't have the UPS account, you can set it up for free. Just head over to WooCommerce UPS docs for details. When you have an Access Key, you can fill the fields in this section. Provide your user ID, Password, Access Key and Account Number.
You can set your custom origin in this section if you need. By default, the origin is taken from the WooCommerce settings (for WooCommerce 3.2 and higher). Custom origin is mandatory for older versions of WooCommerce.
- Set your weight unit.
- Debug mode is a developer option. You don't need it now. It's used when something is not working :)
- API Status shows you if your store is connected to the UPS API. It will be available when you save the settings what you can do now.
So, does the API Status tell you it's OK? Then you are ready to add the UPS as a shipping method in your store. In not, please double check your API settings.
Add WooCommerce UPS to shipping methods
It's simple. Go to WooCommerce → Settings → Shipping → Shipping zones and select the shipping zone to which you want to add UPS shipping method.
On the next screen click the Add shipping method button and select UPS.
It's working now! Let's take a look:
