Action Requested for UPS Real-Time Shipping Estimates

Attention Essent Compass and SiteBuilder users who use UPS shipping estimates – action is requested by Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014, to help ensure you continue to receive real-time shipping estimates from UPS without slow response times or outages.

What does this mean to you?

UPS issued an alert that said some users are using UPS Developer Kit APIs in the Customer Integration Environment (CIE), which is not intended to perform as the UPS production environment. UPS asked users to migrate to the UPS production environment by Nov. 25, 2014 to avoid slow response times or outages./p>
