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 value. Will only round if the actual declared value meets or exceeds the Carriage Value Threshold (if the 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. 
Default FedEx package  The 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 the label as the FedEx reference field. See the 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 fields. 

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.
