We don’t use Quick Ship; we went with a third party. But I still want to work within the system and use these “billing types.”
Basically the only need at the moment is a place to put the UPS account number of our customer on their customer record (which I now know means putting it on every ship-to record ).
I found all the Billing Type codes. “FedEx collect” is nice and straightforward. But UPS… what is collect, exactly? Is parcel collect a different thing than freight collect?
I mean, I could use anything since we are not using QS, but I want to do it right anyway.
Is there no manual for Quick Ship, by the way? I looked on EpicWeb.

@JasonMcD take a look at the billing codes in the Quickship help.
Quick Ship (search for “billing”)
@bderuvo Outstanding. Thank you.
We have a customization that allows us to put the UPS account number instead of all of the Ship Tos. If you want, I can look up the name of the company who did it for us.
@lgraham Not at the moment, but thank you.
Apparently I had a premonition!
Quick backstory - we have UPS as a carrier, supplier and a customer (that’s not much of a secret.) So when we have to ship to UPS the customer, we ship via UPS collect - shocker, I know.
I found out today that UPS (the customer) has us use one collect account number for freight and a different account for parcel.
Again, we don’t use QuickShip, so I am not restrained today, but I want to emulate it in case we ever do switch to it.
So, what would you do in this case for setup - like, what billing types for each? When I looked at the Manifest help (thank you @bderuvo), it doesn’t seem to anticipate this.
@JasonMcD did you try adding a Manifest Billing record to the customer or shipto? I don’t think it ties to ship via, but you can via a BPM.
Maybe use separate shipto’s and add the Manifest Billing to each?
Right, I can find a way (UPS PrePaid for one and UPS Freight Collect for the other), but I was wondering what is the best practice. What might future-proof this in case we were ever to switch to QuickShip. We can’t be the only people that have UPS as a customer and ship to them using UPS.
You do hit on a tangent - it’s a pain it does not tie to Ship Via, but that wasn’t my concern today. I am thinking of putting in an Idea request for that.
