How do I connect my FedEx Account to the Test Environment?

In order to connect your FedEx account to our test environment, you'll need your test account credentials:

  • FedEx Test Account Number
  • FedEx Test Meter Number
  • FedEx Test Access Key
  • FedEx Access Key Password

If you need to know how to get these credentials, we've prepared a step-by-step guide below.

1. Log Into Your FedEx Developer Account

If you do not have a FedEx Developer Account, you'll need to create one in order to integrate your FedEx account with EasyPost anyway. Once you log into your FedEx Developer Account, click on the following links from your account homepage: FedEx Web Services --> Develop and Test --> Get Your Test Key.

2. Get Your Test Credentials

Complete the form and ensure you select Global and US, then accept the agreement to continue. If you need to create test labels for intra-country addresses within European countries, make sure you select that country in addition to a US and Global account number.

After registering for a test account, you should receive an email from FedEx that contains your Test Password. Be sure to copy that down as well

3. Connect Your Account to EasyPost

Log into your EasyPost account, and select FedEx from the Carriers Tab. You'll then see this modal pop up.
