Important Note:

  • After successfully integrating, Zoho Inventory creates a sub-account of your original UPS Account using your UPS Account Number and address. This is where all the shipments that you have created in Zoho Inventory will be synced. The two accounts are tightly bonded. So even though you won’t be able to view those shipments in your primary account, the workflow takes place as usual.

  • This approach was taken due to the circumstances where the users might change their UPS account credentials at any time which will affect the current integration.
