How do I ship UPS Mail Innovations shipments?

  1. First, you will need to contact your UPS account representative and verify that you have Mail Innovations enabled on your UPS account.
  2. Second, you will need to find your Mail Innovations Cost Center Code. Your UPS account representative should be able to provide you with this.
  3. You will want to enter this code into ReadyShipper X under Settings --> Shipper Accounts --> UPS --> Cost Center Code.
  4. You then have the options of choosing a default USPS endorsement or you can leave the field blank and set it on an order-by-order basis:

For domestic UPS Mail Innovations shipments, the following USPS Endorsements are available:

  • Address Service Requested
  • Change Service Requested
  • Forwarding Service Requested
  • No Endorsement

The above USPS Endorsements are available when using the Expedited Mail Innovations service with one of the following package types:

  • BPM Parcels
  • Irregulars
  • Machineables
  • Media Mail
  • Parcel Post


  1. When using Expedited Mail Innovations with BPM Flat or Standard Flat packaging, no USPS endorsements are supported. 
  2. The domestic Priority Mail and First Class Mail Innovations services do not require USPS endorsements.
  3. None of the UPS Mail Innovations international services support USPS endorsements.
