Setup ShipRush for UPS & FedEx Shipping

Overview

  • Stone Edge Technologies offers customers a special license for Descarte’s ShipRush for FedEx software that allows shipping labels to be printed through The Stone Edge Order Manager . Contact Stone Edge Technologies to obtain a license key.
  • ShipRush for UPS is also compatible with SEOM.
  • ZFirm (ShipRush) is transitioning from Endicia DAZzle to Stamps.com for printing USPS shipping labels, however, SEOM does not support the Stamps.com integration that commences with ShipRush Version 9.0. ShipRush for USPS can still be used for printing simple mailing labels.
  • To print USPS shipping labels through Stone Edge, use the direct Stone Edge-Endicia DAZzle integration.
  • Some areas of the program print shipping labels immediately without displaying the ShipRush interface, while others open the SEOM ShipRush Entry screen before opening the ShipRush interface.
  • All labels printed when the ShipRush interface is open are directed to the printer specified in the ShipRush application settings.

Supported ShipRush Versions

  • SEOM 7.0, 7.1, 7.5 are compatible with ShipRush versions 9 and 10.
  • SEOM 7.7 introduces a direct UPS and FedEx integration that does not require ShipRush.

Supported Features

  • Commencing with SEOM V5.929, rate shopping is available through the ShipRush integration, just as it is with the other integrated carrier shipping solutions.

  • ShipRush for FedEx users: An alternate method for obtaining rate information quickly is to use the Available Services button on the ShipRush Shipping screen, which simultaneously provides rate information for multiple shipping methods from the specified carrier for a given package. This method is much faster than the results received by SEOM‘s Shipping Rates (Rate Shop) screen.
  • A combined packing slip and shipping label report is now available for UPS and FedEx shipments processed through ShipRush. To use this report, set system parameters ShipRushFedExPrinting and/or ShipRushUPSPrinting to TRUE.

  • ShipRush provides the ability to create multiple box shipments so that the shipping labels reflect the sequence number of the box and the total number of boxes in the shipment  (Box 1 of 2, etc.)

Changes in the SEOM shipping integration

The function of the legacy system parameter ShippingSystem is now broken down into separate parameters for each of the major carriers:

  • FedExShippingSystem
  • UPSShippingSystem
  • USPSShippingSystem

SEOM no longer checks additional “packing” parameters to determine how USPS labels are printed via ShipRush. The system parameters in the Packing group are now solely used to determine if a carrier is usable at one of the Packing forms(Pack & Ship or QuickShip).

As a result of this change, SEOM is now able to support the use of both ShipRush for FedEx and the integrated UPS OnLine Tools shipping software simultaneously in SEOM version 7.

Setting ShipRush Parameters in SEOM

  1. Go to Main Menu>Settings>System Functions>System Parameters.
  2. Set the following parameters according to your needs:
