uShip Payments - Protect Yourself by Paying Online

With uShip Payments, you can book your shipments online with one payment handled entirely through It’s the safest way for you to pay for shipping services.

How it works:
  • 1. When you book your shipment, you prepay for the job in full.
  • 2. You will receive a payment code for your shipment.
  • 3. Upon completion of the shipment, you will release payment to the service provider. You can do this one of two ways:
    • Give the payment code to your service provider.
    • OR release funds online from your uShip account.
NOTE: Do not give the payment code to your service provider before completion of the shipment. If a service provider requests the code before delivery, please contact Member Support.
Note for animal shippers: Payment for animal shipments may be made at pickup as required by USDA regulations.

This may be applied toward booking the same or any other shipment within one year of the original cancellation date. The remaining 90% of the quote price will be refunded in full.
