Carrier Account Settings

Once you’ve added your account, you can configure carrier settings specific to this account. You can maintain different settings for each account if you set up multiple accounts. To change settings for accounts, click Account and then make your changes by selecting from the drop-down lists.

Default Prepaid Billing Type

This is the default Billing Type for shipments paid for by the shipper. You can select from Sender, Recipient, or any other 3PL you set up in Maintain > 3PL. Worldwide Express 2 does not support Third-Party billing.

These settings affect the options available under Billing on the Shipment.

Tendering Type

The choices are Call, Daily Pickup, or Electronic. StarShip only sends a pickup request to Worldwide Express 2 when Electronic is selected. For the other options, you must contact the carrier directly.


Check to disable this carrier. Once disabled, you cannot rate or ship using this carrier when shipping with Worldwide Express 2. You will not see rates for this carrier when you rate a shipment, nor will this carrier appear on the Shipment when Bill Freight Type is set to Sender. The carrier will still be available when the Bill Freight Type is set to Recipient.
