Did you know that your Volusion store can provide your customers with live shipping rates from FedEx? It’s true, so long as you've registered with FedEx and configured all active FedEx shipping methods in your store with their respective FedEx Service Codes.

To make your life easy (or at least easier), these service codes are programmed into your store's shipping database by default. However, if you’ve modified your FedEx shipping methods from their original settings, we recommend you double-check the codes against the default settings below to make sure you’re set up to get accurate and up-to-date shipping info from your friends at FedEx.

  • FedEx Ground® (Business addresses only): FEDEXGROUND
  • FedEx Home Delivery® (Residential addresses only): GROUNDHOMEDELIVERY
  • FedEx Express Saver®: FEDEXEXPRESSSAVER
  • FedEx 2Day®: FEDEX2DAY
  • FedEx Standard Overnight®: STANDARDOVERNIGHT
  • FedEx Priority Overnight®: PRIORITYOVERNIGHT
  • FedEx First Overnight®: FIRSTOVERNIGHT
  • FedEx International Ground®: FEDEXGROUND
  • FedEx International Economy®: INTERNATIONALECONOMY
  • FedEx International Priority®: INTERNATIONALPRIORITY
  • FedEx International First®: INTERNATIONALFIRST
  • FedEx 1Day® Freight: FEDEX1DAYFREIGHT
  • FedEx 2Day® Freight: FEDEX2DAYFREIGHT
  • FedEx 3Day® Freight: FEDEX3DAYFREIGHT
  • FedEx International Priority® Freight: INTERNATIONALPRIORITYFREIGHT

 

If the default codes aren’t matching up with what you currently have in your store, you can manually change them for any shipping method like so:

  1. Go to Settings > Shipping in your Admin Area
  2. Under Live Rates, click on the FedEx method you wish to modify
  3. Scroll down to Advanced Settings and expand the section
  4. Type the new service code into the Service Code field
  5. Click Save

⚠️ Good To Know

Instead of deleting any records from your store’s shipping table, we recommend that you deactivate them instead by deselecting the Active check box in the Shipping Methods Table.

 

Summary

With the right FedEx Service Codes configured in your store, securing live shipping rate info for your customers will be a breeze. Check em’, change em’ if need be, and send your products packing. 📦 🚚
