How To Request Access Keys

If you do not have an online login with UPS please go to and create a new online account by selecting "Register". If you have an online account please login.

Click on the top menu item "Business Solutions", this will bring you to a page that should list all of their services. Underneath the heading "Get Technical Support" there is a link for UPS Online Tools. Select that link.
If your language of choice when entering the site was US the following link will take you to the online tools.

If you do not have a developer's key you will need to request one. This key provides you access to requesting service access keys, but is not actually used in Tradepoint. After receiving your access key you will now need to request access to the services that you wish to be able to use. UPS does not require certification for using their rate request services, but for their shipping services a second request for an access key is required.

To request access keys for the services please go to: . If you request access for the shipping services you will automatically have access to the rate request services.
For only rate requests select the link UPS Rates & Service Selection under the Standard Tools section. Look for a link that says "XML Access Key" (near top of the page right) or "Get XML Access Key" (near bottom of the page). An email will be sent containing the access key. This is the key that would need to be specified in the configuration settings of Tradepoint or the UPS service.
For requesting access to the shipping services, on the Get UPS Online Tools page in the Premium Tools section select "UPS Shipping". This service requires that you submit a request form as well as request an access key. Please follow the directions on that page to request access. Once you have received your access key please enter it into the settings for the UPS shipping service.

If you have lost your access key, or developers key you can use the site to request that they be resent by clicking on the "Resend Developer's Key" link that is visible on the right side of most of the online tools pages, or by clicking on the request access link for the tools to have the XML access key for the tool resent.

To be able to use the shipping services, after your testing is complete an application for certification is required. For certification multiple samples of requests, response and labels are required to be sent to UPS. The UPS Certification wizard in Tradepoint will generated the required documents that you will need to email and send in to UPS. On completion of the wizard email all the documents generated to with a subject indicating a request for shipping service certification. If you are printing labels, you will also need to fax in the labels that were printed by the wizard to (702) 319-2962 ATTENTION: UPS EMAIL DEPARTMENT. In the email remember to include your "Developers Key" and contact information such that they could contact you if needed. UPS advises that this process should take approximately 2 business day.
