FedEx Tab Overview

When configuring FedEx, choose FedEx ShipManager PassPort or FedEx Web Services as the shipping generator (click these respective topics for specific setup instructions).


FedEx shipping options

The table below defines each of these options:

OPTION DESCRIPTION
Disable insurance When checked, will not allow the purchase of insurance when shipping by FedEx.
Enable carriage value threshold Threshold that the declared value of the shipment must meet or exceed in order to request insurance.

For example, if the threshold is $150, a package valued at $145 will not be able to request insurance. A package valued at $150 or more will be able to request insurance.

Round carriage value to the nearest $100 Round the declared value to the nearest $100 dollar value. Will only round if the actual declared value meets or exceed the Carriage Value Threshold (if threshold is set).
Default signature type Will default to the option selected here requiring signature confirmation on FedEx Express or FedEx Ground orders: Indirect, Direct, or Adult. Read more here for definitions and restrictions.
Default FedEx package Package type on the order will default to the option selected here.

Unless you have another reason, set the option to FedEx – Your Packaging. 

Bill duty/tax to Select the option to configure who pays duty/tax for international shipments: Sender, Receiver, or Third Party. If a third party is selected, a reference field will appear to enter its FedEx Account.
FedEx Express Reference map: Reference Choose from any SellerCloud order field to display on label as the FedEx reference field. See image below.
FedEx Ground Reference map Map the following three FedEx reference fields that print on the FedEx label to 3 SellerCloud order fields. Shipbridge allows you to enter almost any reference type in all the field.

Choose from the drop-down or enter manually.

Note: A packing slip or invoice should be printed with the shipping label to indicate what must be packed in the order. The reference boxes are good indicators, but they are small and too restrictive and can’t completely replace a packing list.
