What is an Access Key?
An Access Key provides your business access to UPS systems which hold the information you or your customers need to ship, track, or rate a package. An Access Key is required for access to all available HTML and XML versions of the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

The following are a few suggestions to more effectively utilise your company's Access Key(s):

  • If your business is interested in integrating either the UPS Signature Tracking™ API or the Shipping API, we require that you first complete a request form for the specific API and receive authorisation before requesting an Access Key.
  • If multiple locations or departments will be accessing the APIs, a great way to monitor and assess usage is to have an Access Key per location.
