To request shipping quotes from UPS, in real life ecomm site, ca we use a TEST access key ONLY? Or comply with their certification process to have a production access key?
What are the requirements from UPS to get shipping quotes for a production e-commerce website?
Is the "test access key" sufficent (permanent use) or if the "production access key" MUST be obtained. In that case, it means having to go though their certification process. And that is not what I expected when I acquired ecart.
I had simply read, at item 11 of the Getting Started with eCart - tutorial:
Once you have specified your shipping options, click Next.
If you chose a Shipping Provider, the next step will prompt you for your API access credentials. Enter those details and click Next.
SEEMED quite simple.
I am asking about the "certification" process with UPS, to know if I keep trying to make e-cart work(requesting shipping quotes) in "test" access or if I drop e-cart altogether.
Thanks for a straightforward answer on that.
