Step 6: Get FedEx Certification

Mandatory Certification Process

To generate labels or to get quotes with address validation, FedEx requires completing the production certification for Advanced Services With Label Certification. If you don't complete this step, you won't be able to use YoPrint FedEx integration.

You can learn more about the certification process here

Step 6.1: Download FedEx Certification Labels

  2. Click on the ⋮ and Click Generate Certification Labels

Step 6.2: Print & Scan the Labels

Once downloaded, print the labels using your Thermal Printer. Once printed, please scan at 600DPI for best results. 

Why Scan?

FedEx Label Certification wants to verify the quality of the printed label and make sure that their barcode scanner can read the barcode successfully. Therefore, if you don't submit the printed and scanned version of the label, they will simply reject it.

The shipping methods are solely used during Quote / Sales Order creation and allow you to pass on the cost of shipping to you at the time of creating the Quote. When it comes time to actually ship the packages out, you will have the flexibility to decide the shipping speed and generate the correct label.

The markup/margins are used during the process of creating Quote / Sales Order and are applied to the estimated shipping cost.
