Under the Sales & Purchases tab, find the Shipping Accounts section and click Add a Line


This brings up the Create Shipping Accounts modal window where you'll complete the following fields:

Carrier: Select UPS from the dropdown menu. 

UPS Account Zip: When UPS is selected as the carrier, this field will display. Enter your 5-digit zip code.

Notes: If you'd like to add any notes about this account, you can do so here.


When you're done, click SAVE & CLOSE, or SAVE & NEW button if there is an additional Shipping Account you'd like to create.
