Now, if you are using the UPS WooCommerce plugin, you can easily get details of UPS Access Point that your clients choose. All the necessary data is now saved in a special table and can be passed through the WooCommerce REST API.

So, how does it work?

Send UPS Access Point choice from WooCommerce

First, you have to get the right plugin. Download and activate the UPS WooCommerce Plugin that allows to simply send the data. Then you just have to wait until one of your clients places an order and choose UPS Access Points as a shipping option. All the shipment details, including UPS Access Point selection, are saved in shiping_lines field and are ready to send. Now you can easily send all the shipment details to any External Order Management System that works with REST API.

},

}
]
}
],

Send shipment details from other shipping plugins

We allowed to send UPS Access Points Choice from WooCommerce, but we also added a similar solution to most of our shipping plugins. In the DPD UK plugin, you can also get data, this time from fs_shipping_lines field. but the core of this feature is the same. It’s all made to make using WooCommerce easy. We really hope that it will be helpful.
