The WooCommerce UPS Shipping extension allows you to show your customers real-time UPS shipping rates and delivery estimates in your WooCommerce Store. Shipping rates are calculated on the cart page and displayed to the customer. WooCommerce UPS supports the full-range of UPS shipping rating services and options available through the UPS Shipment Rating API.

Easily customize how shipping is calculated using the packaging setting:
- Per-item – each item in the customer’s order is considered to be a package within the overall shipment. The product’s dimensions and weight is used for the package dimension / weight. There is an option to require dimensions for products (for more accurate shipping quotes).
- Custom Box – the customer’s order is considered to fit inside the dimensions defined for the custom box. The combined weights of the products in the customer’s order plus the box weight is used as the total weight for the shipment.
- Pack Table – define a pack table for each shipping class, which can then be assigned to products. A pack table works by specifying how many units fit inside a given box size / weight. If the quantity of product’s ordered exceeds the maximum in the pack table, a new package will be created at the next logical pack table level.
After installing and activating the WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping > UPS and enter your UPS username and password. You’ll also need to fill out the Origin Shipper section so UPS can calculate rates correctly.
