Using a Pcard for Shipping Transactions

UPS CVS customers must use the Pcard to complete a shipping transaction. All transaction detail is maintained by you, and supporting documentation provided by the card merchant. Customers that have registered their FedEx account with FedEx Billing Online will pay for charges online using a Pcard. Watch the demo on Billing Online for more information. Note that prior to using FedEx Ship Manager or FedEx Billing Online Plus, you must complete the FedEx Ship Manager Sign Up Form and the FedEx Billing Online Plus Sign Up Form

Use a Pcard to pay for shipping transactions and avoid a 10% administrative markup.
