Available Properties

Using properties for UPS allows you to allocate various specifics to either an item or order level. 

  • Item Property Mapping is used to allow the submission of additional specific data from a Linnworks inventory item to the courier during the request for a shipping label.
  • Order Property Mapping is used to allow the submission of additional specific data from a Linnworks order to the courier during the request for a shipping label.

These are extra details that may be required by UPS that are not a standard field in Linnworks. As such, to make use of these properties they will need to be added as extended properties on Linnworks and then mapped to the appropriate property in the UPS integration. For information on creating using extended properties please see the linked guide.

All item and order extended property types must be set to Attribute.
