If you ship orders via Third Party Parcel Accounts, you need to create these accounts in Infoplus to execute third-party billing for orders.
NOTE: When an order ships using a third-party account it “piggybacks” off of a primary Parcel Account. For example, a UPS Parcel Account is required to ship orders that call out a UPS Third Party Parcel Account. To create a Parcel Account see the Create a Parcel Account article.
Create a Third Party Parcel Account
- Access the “Third Party Parcel Account” table. Two methods:
- From the Dashboard: Click the “Warehouse Operations” tab, click the “Manifest Setup” App, then click the “Third Party Parcel Account” Table.

- Click the Create New button. The Creating New Third Party Parcel Account window appears.
- Select the Line of Business (LOB) for this parcel account.

- In the Active field, select Yes or No to indicate if this account is active.
