Using UPS Shipping plugin to only Print Labels and Shipment Tracking
Sometimes the customers do not want to provide UPS Shipping Rates for some specific regions. There can be different reasons for doing so. Especially when your business case demands the same. In such cases the UPS Shipping plugin can be used to just Print Shipping Labels and one of the important aspects of shipping, tracking the package.
Consider the following customer scenario:
- As the customer only wants UPS Shipping plugin to generate labels and track shipments, enable the Label Printing and Tracking options in the plugin settings. Also, you can enable Automatic Label Printing option in Advanced Setting.
- Set up the Flat Rates in WooCommerce Shipping Zones. For more details regarding Flat Rates, click here.
Once these steps are performed successfully, the UPS Shipping plugin will not show UPS rates to the customers. But once the customers place the order, all you have to do is confirm shipment.
After confirming shipment, the UPS Shipping plugin will generate the shipping label as well as the UPS tracking number. Hence, you will be able to print the shipping label and track your package without even using the plugin to generate real-time rates.
