Using StarShip Rate Quote in Dynamics 365 BC

StarShip Rate Quote allows you to rate shipments before you ship them. You can get rate quotes from within the Dynamics 365 interface and write the selected rate quote back to the Sales Order or Invoice document.

Select StarShip > General Setup
Click the Edit button to modify the StarShip URL field.

For StarShip Web (On-Prem) Users
Make sure the StarShip URL field is set to “http://machine name:180” (where machine name = the name of the machine where StarShip Web is installed).
For StarShip Online (Cloud) Users

The StarShip URL field should be set to the URL used to access StarShip, which follows this formula: “https://companycode.starship.online/”. The company code is your company name; the company code is sent to you in the StarShip welcome email.
