FedEx Shipping Account

Departments may work directly with FedEx to ship and pay for shipping by using one of the following two procedures:

  • Create a FedEx Billing Online account and pay for shipping invoices using the purchasing card.
    • A video tutorial of FedEx Billing Online can be found here.
  • Create or update a FedEx shipper account and attach the purchasing card to be direct-charged by FedEx for all shipments on the account.
    • To setup this direct-charge method of payment, contact FedEx at or 800-645-9424.
    • After this process is established with FedEx, the purchasing card will automatically be charged for each shipment processed on the FedEx account.
    • Please note: when creating a shipper account be sure to request WSU pricing. This will guarantee shipping at the lowest cost available.
  • After FedEx charges the purchasing card, the transaction will be available for reconciliation in PNet4. Please click here for detailed information on identifying and reconciling transactions in PNet4.

IMPORTANT: Invoices will no longer be received by Accounts Payable. The invoices will only be available electronically through FedEx Billing Online
