How to Import your File to UPS
The file you’ll download will be in CSV form. You will need to remove the rows of orders you do not want to create a label for.
Once your file is ready, login into your UPS account. Under Shipping, select Batch File Shipping.
Batch File Shipping enables you to create up to 250 shipments, if your file contains more than 250 shipments, it is likely you will encounter an error when uploading your file.
The origin address must be the same for all the shipments, but the destination address can be different. Batch File Shipping only supports single-piece shipments where the payment method is either by UPS Shipper Account (prepaid) or Third Party.
After confirming the return to return address and payment method, you can ship your packages. When the process is complete, you will get an indication of how many packages were successfully processed.
