FedEx Realtime Rate Changes

January 6, 2013

The DLL used to communicate with FedEx has been updated to support the latest changes for real time rates.  Please note that with this new DLL change FedEx is returning different names for the different services, for instance …

New Names

First Overnight, Priority Overnight, Standard Overnight, 2 Day AM, 2 Day, Express Saver, Ground Home Delivery
Old Names
For users who are using FedEx realtime rates and excluding certain rates based on their names we have attempted to automatically update all merchant exclusions from the back-end to the new names from the old names so you should not need to do so.
Please also note that FedEx is also requiring the production key and password to return rates.  If this information is not included you will most not receive realtime rates from FedEx.

Action Required

There are now 2 new FedEx fields in the StoreSecured FedEx setup which are required to be entered in order to use the upgraded version: FedEx Production Key and FedEx Password.  Until you enter this information your store will continue to use the old FedEx services.


Important Note

FedEx will begin removing support for the old FedEx web services tools in March.  If you are using FedEx realtime rates it is CRITICAL that you enter the information above to upgrade your store BEFORE March.
