 7-0026-EN-How do I setup FedEx Web Services for Shipping and enable it in my shop?

FedEx supports domestic and international shipping rates for USA and Canada. Other countries using FedEx can only ship overseas.

ShopFactory allows you to combine multiple shipping providers. As an example, you can use USPS for domestic shipping and then FedEx for international shipping. This will allow merchants to take advantage of lower shipping rates both international and domestic locations.

Merchants must already have a FedEx account - with Login ID as your Account Number.

To enable the FedEx Web Services, you will need to login to:

On the top menu, click on "FedEx Web Services" -> select "FedEx Web Services for Shipping" option

Click on "Move to Production"


Scroll down the page and locate the "Obtain Production Key" as shown below:

Now, select the appropriate options -

1) Application Profile

2) License Agreement

Click "I Accept" to continue

3) Contact Info

Enter your contact details and click Continue

FedEx Account Number = FedEx USER ID

4) Developer Info

Click Continue.

5) Confirmation

On this page, you will find your Authentication Key and Meter Number. Take note of this.

Your Production Access Password will be emailed to you.

In ShopFactory:
