Setup UPS Paperless Invoice (EDI)

We target to support UPS Paperless Invoice (UPS Electronic Data Interchange or EDI) in Q4 2017, so that you dont need to print out invoice for shipping internationally. Do note that only certain countries support paperless trade and UPS keeps updating the country list.

In order to enable Paperless Invoice function, you need to login to your account to enable this feature. 

By default, your UPS account cannot support paperless invoice EDI, and you have to print out physical commercial invoice when shipping. 

Enable UPS EDI Paperless Invoice

To set up UPS Paperless Invoice, you'll need the following:

A UPS Account Number
A digital image of you company letterhead
A digital image of your signature

When you have all these items ready,  start the process to enroll in UPS Paperless Invoice

Log in to your account.
Expand the My UPS menu and navigate to Maintain your UPS account.
Accept the UPS Paperless Invoice Letter of Agreement.

Once you do so, you'll be eligible to use UPS Paperless Invoice within 24 hours.

UPS EDI Label Sample

If your UPS shipper account has been approved to submit paperless invoice, and you successfully generate a EDI label, the invoice details should be submitted electronically to EDI, and the wordings "EDI" should appear at your label.
