I needed to change my current license to my new computer, so I called TrueShip and they provided me with great step by step instructions. I’ll share them with you just in case you would like to change computers. It was actually pretty easy. You’ll want start off by backing up your settings, order history and any custom maps before uninstalling it from the current computer. TrueShip made it so easy. Order History can be exported out by going to File, Export by XML, and All. That will save all your orders in XML files. You can pull your setting from that license out by going to My Documents, ReadyShipper, and copying the settings.json file to the desktop or something. You can get your custom maps for CSV import by going to My Documents, ReadyShipper, and Import Maps and copy and paste that to your desktop as well. After doing all that go to Start, All Programs, ReadyShipper and select uninstall. This will remove the software from that computer and free up your license key for a new computer.
Download the software by going to TrueShip.com. When you open ReadyShipper for the first time, you will choose I have a ReadyShipper license key. Enter the license key for your current license. You can then import your old orders by going to import, selecting TrueShip XML from the import Type drop down menu and bring those XML files in. You can load your custom CSV map by going to import, Edit Maps and clicking on Load Map. You will then load in the .rsmap file from the old license. The final step to restore all your setting is to go to My Documents on the new computer and go to the ReadyShipper folder. You will see a settings .json file. Delete it and paste in the settings.json file you copied from your old license.
The people at TrueShip made this a very easy process.
The TrueShip ship type converter is a great time saving tool. You can automatically convert your ship types for carrier and service specific shipping. Trueship allows you to enter the same name of your ship type on the left and select its equivalent on the right. TrueShip's ReadyShipper Pro Shipping Software also allows you to specify weight range if needed. All I did was watch the weight type converter video in the demos and manuals page and I was able to set it up myself.
TrueShip did a great job of implementing third party billing options. Every once in a while I need to ship using a different shipper account number. I also like to do it without having to jump through hoops. TrueShip made it very easy. All you have to do is go to modules, UPS online, setting, and you will see third party billing towards the bottom of the UPS Online Setting page. Trueship’s ReadyShipper Pro really facilitates the process. All you need is the account number, zip code, and the country and make sure to check off use third party billing. When you’re done go back and uncheck third party billing.
