A Dropshippers Dilemna: Can Someone Help?
« on: September 14, 2010, 14:52:07 pm »
For my online store, I do not ship any products from my location.  I ship from various distributors across the country who ship the items directly to my customers. 

This makes having a UPS account pointless since I am not the one shipping the products, so I am trying to see if there is a way to configure the UPS module so it calculates shipping without the hassle of trying to configure an account at UPS?

Since the bulk of my business is in NC and the origination points for the products are in close proximity, my solution has been to pull the zone rates for UPS and calculate the cost manually, but what a pain.  The other problem is that this does not work for folks who are outside that zone, and I refuse to set that up manually.

Other programs, like ZenCart, seemed to have an easier UPS integration, and so I am really just trying to see if something already exists to assist with this.
