Modified on Mon, 03 Jun 2024 at 07:03 PM


When setting up your Clients in techShip, you will have to configure Billing Accounts to ship through them. These use a Baseline Account as a foundation, but their way to work could be different based on the Client's needs.

When setting Billing Accounts, you will be able to specify how it should work for that specific client, setting label references, packing slips usage, rate shopping, markups, WMS information updating and Carrier options such as the default service level, address validation, sender and return addresses, etc.

This article describes the procedure to set up a Frontier SCS billing account, while others are specifically written for other Carriers.

Feel free to follow the step-by-step guide written below or the video guide, as you prefer:
