UPS Developer Kit

Announcements and API Updates

UPS has launched the new API Developer Portal with OpenAPI spec documentation, a sandbox environment, and additional features to modernize your API integrations. In the future, we will no longer be distributing access keys and all API integrations will utilize an OAuth 2.0 security model. Please visit the new developer portal to begin your API integration with UPS.
