Find your account number

Depending on when and how you created your UPS account, it might not have an account number (sometimes referred to as a Shipper Number) associated with it yet. If you already have an account number, then you can find it on a copy of a UPS invoice or by checking online. If you don't have an account number, then you can register for one online.

To find your account number:

  1. Log in to your account at the UPS website.
  2. From the account menu in the top-right corner of the page, select Payment Options.

Under My payment methods, your account number will appear in the Number column (your account number is in a format similar to 123AB4). If an account number doesn't appear here, then you need to register for one online.
