PHP 5.3 or later SoapClient (for UPS plugin) - should be included in your PHP distribution by default
In order to use this software you will need several things from UPS (United Parcel Service).
- A valid UPS shipper number.
- An online account at www.ups.com (you will need a valid shipper number first). Make sure you choose a username and password you are comfortable keeping for a while. You will need to use both with every API call.
- Sign up for API access at www.ups.com/upsdeveloperkit. Once approved, you will receive an API key that you will need to use for every API call. Note: At the time of this writing, there is a known issue with this section of UPS's site and Chrome will return a blank page. You will need to use a different browser.
Once you have obtained these items, enter them in the includes/config.php file.
