Configure USPS

When the USPS shipping provider is installed, it should be configured in Sana Admin.

Before configuring USPS, you should create a USPS merchant account and register for USPS Web API Access to receive User Id, Domestic API URL (Domestic Rates API - RateV4) and International API URL (International Rates API - IntlRateV2) from USPS. For more information, read "Rate Calculator APIs".

When you have all the necessary information from USPS, you can start configuring USPS shipping provider in Sana Admin.

Step 1: In Sana Admin click: Apps > Add-ons. When the USPS add-on is installed, you can configure it from any tab on the "Add-ons" page by clicking on the Configure button .

Step 2: Configure the USPS connection settings. Enter the following information provided by USPS:

  • Domestic API URL
  • International API URL
  • User Id

Step 3: Select the container type for international shipping:


Step 4: Enter the number of days (from the current day) for the shipment to be submitted to USPS.

Step 5: Configure the webstore shipping origin:

  • If the option Use custom shipping origin is disabled, then the shipping origin will be retrieved from the ERP system. For the shipping cost calculation, the address of the warehouse that you ship from when delivering goods to the customer will be used. In case of anonymous webstore visitor, the warehouse address of the template customer will be used.
  • If the option Use custom shipping origin is enabled, then the shop administrator should manually enter the webstore shipping origin address. All shipping costs will be calculated based on this address.

When USPS is configured, you can create USPS shipping methods.
