Start using your APC rates

Now that you have your APC account connected, you will need to do the following to begin using your live APC rates in your shipping quotes:

  1. Create shipping zones - Shipping zones allow you to have different service levels, rules, and shipping rates for different countries or groups of countries.
  2. Enable APC service levels - Enabling service levels in the zones that you want to use them in allows you to offer different service levels to different zones.
  3. Test your shipping - Test your shipping to make sure everything is working properly and being displayed as intended before being used in production or going live on your website.

Important: You must have item weights set for each item in your shopping cart platform in order to get accurate shipping quotes. If you have items or boxes larger than 11” on any side, your items may need to be calculated with dimensional weight to get accurate quotes. Please contact support for options.

Note: When determining the shipping rate for a package, APC utilizes the weight measurement that yields the higher value between the actual weight and dimensional weight.
