How to Locate Your Quote ID in BigCommerce

Overview

When corresponding with the ShipperHQ support team, it’s often useful to be able to point us to a specific shipping quote that didn’t match your expectations. We have significant internal logging in ShipperHQ and each shipping quote request is tied to a unique ID we call a “Transaction ID” or” Quote ID”. By providing this ID to our team, we can look at the exact shipping quote request where you spotted something unexpected and see all the additional logging around that.

Steps

If you are unable to retrieve rates in BigCommerce, or the rates are not as you expect, then you should follow the following steps:

  1. Check that you have “Shipping From Address” set in BigCommerce.  Without this, you will not see any rates returned from ShipperHQ
  2. Check that you have correctly specified the relevant origin/shipping group/dimensional rules as appropriate on your products (Note: none of these are mandatory)
  3. Simplify the problem down to the least amount of items in the cart
  4. Look at the Logs under Server Settings->Store logs and look at the “Internal Error Message if present. You can then look this error message up to see what is causing your issue
    *Note: You will need to click the + sign to expand out the log request from ShipperHQ as seen in the picture below
