View All ShipperHQ Carrier and Method Codes in Magento

Overview

In some cases, you may need to view all of the ShipperHQ carriers and methods you have enabled, for example to use in Shopping Cart Price Rules or to map them for order processing systems etc. You will first need to refresh your carriers.

Configuration

Magento 1:

  1. Go to System > Configuration > Shipping Methods > ShipperHQ
  2. Save the configuration page or use the Refresh Carriers button to update all carriers in ShipperHQ

Magento 2:

  1. Go to Store > Configuration > Sales > Shipping Methods > ShipperHQ
  2. Save the configuration page with ShipperHQ enabled to update all carriers in ShipperHQ

At this point you will see all carriers and methods for example under Shopping Cart Price Rules.

For integrations with other systems via code, use the following excerpt as a guide to retrieve all carriers and methods.
$carrier->getAllowedMethods();

Current Method Codes

Here is a list of some of the method codes in ShipperHQ, if you are unable to obtain through the getAllowedMethods() and need urgently for other carriers/codes contact us.

Note that these method codes will be prefixed by the Carrier Code shown on the Advanced tab of your carrier. This Carrier Code is unique per instance of the carrier. For example, if you have two USPS carriers set up the codes by default would be shqusps and shqusps1 though you can change the part of the code after shq in the Advanced Tab of your carrier (plus if you’re on Magento you may have chosen to use carrier type instead of carrier code as described below). The resulting code in your eCommerce platform will be the method code shown below prefixed by the carrier code. E.g. for UPS Ground it would be shqups_GND.

USPS

Below are the most common methods used with USPS. Because of how the USPS API returns results, ShipperHQ uses the service name as the method code. However, we’ve also included below the service codes which, while not returned by ShipperHQ, may be useful for mapping to other systems.

Using the Default Carrier Codes in Magento

ShipperHQ uses custom codes to identify standard shipping carriers like UPS and Fedex. For example, we use shqups for UPS and shqfedex for Fedex.

To fully support post order processing systems and label generation, the final shipping method set on a order may need to be the “default carrier code”. For example, your systems may expect that UPS has a code of “ups”.

We have an option available for Magento clients, that will reset the carrier code on the order to be the chosen carrier’s default code. For example, shqups will become ups.  This will allow you to use your default post order processing systems that rely on the default carrier codes and use Magento’s in built label generation.

In your ShipperHQ dashboard,

  • Go to the Carriers page
  • Select the “Carrier Settings” link in the top right corner
  • On the “Display tab”, set “Use Carrier Type for Carrier Code” to Yes (this will result in passing just ‘ups’ instead of ‘shqups’

Then, on your Magento admin panel

  • Go to Catalog > ShipperHQ > Synchronize ShipperHQ and complete synchronization
