3. Fill Out Registration Form

The registration form consists of 3 steps:  The license agreement, customer information, and account information.  When you first arrive at the registration page you are presented with two options.  The first option indicates that you already have a 6 digit UPS Shipping Account and that you can proceed with the registration.  If the second option applies to you, you must register a UPS Shipping Account before proceeding.

c.) Account Information

In the last step you must provide you account information.  If your UPS account has not been invoiced in 90 days (US and Canada) or 45 days (all other countries) you can submit the form without providing invoice information.  However, if you have been invoiced in that period you must enter the invoice information.

Note: If you enter invalid invoice data 3 times, your account will be locked.
