How to Integrate with UPS WorldShip

July 27, 2015
Last week, we covered how to set up an ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) connection to the Fishbowl database. That’s the basic framework you need in order to move on to other things, such as integrating with UPS WorldShip, FedEx Ship Manager, and Endicia. In the next three videos in this series, we’re going to cover how to set up the integration with each of these three shipping solutions. We’ll start with UPS WorldShip.

Downloading Mapping Files

The first thing to do is to go to the UPS WorldShip Mapping Files page on the Fishbowl Wiki. That page has everything to help you get started. The version of Fishbowl that you’re using will determine which mapping files you’ll need to download and use. This video explains what to do with the files once you’ve got them on your computer. These steps are all nice and straightforward. Integrating Fishbowl with shipping solutions is extremely important, and as you can see from this video, it’s fairly quick and easy to integrate Fishbowl with UPS WorldShip. And we’re just getting started.

We’ll continue on this trajectory next week by talking about how to integrate Fishbowl with FedEx Ship Manager. We’ve got a dozen other videos in this series for you to check out, as well:
