Learn how to use Pirate Ship's Rates Calculator to determine your shipping costs with UPS

Updated over a week ago

Determining how much your UPS shipping costs will be for your online listings might seem tricky at first, but we're here to help you navigate these rough waters!

Find the UPS service you want to ship with

  • Choosing a UPS Service: First, you should start by finding the best UPS service that works for your package. Our handy Rates Calculator is a quick and easy tool that helps you see a full list of service options and rates for packages of all types and sizes, including international shipments!

    • Pirate Ship offers a slew of UPS services that you can see on our dedicated UPS page, including UPS® Ground, UPS® Ground Saver, UPS Next Day Air®, and more.

  • Get a UPS Rate Quote: To get a quote from our Rates Calculator, you need to enter a ZIP code (or just the country name, if shipping internationally). If you don't know where you're shipping to yet, enter any valid ZIP code to see what kind of service options are available 👌

UPS doesn't offer a master rate sheet like USPS does

  • No Master Rate Sheet: UPS doesn't publish a master rates spreadsheet the same way USPS does, so there isn't any documentation you can rely on to set your own shipping prices with UPS 🙈

  • Use Our Rates Calculator: Since UPS doesn't publish a rates spreadsheet you can reference, we always suggest relying on our easy Rates Calculator!

    • Try plugging in a few different destinations for your packages, so you see what kind of prices UPS returns for you.

    • You should be able to come up with a ballpark figure from there...but if you'd still like an additional hook, we're always here to help 😎
