What You Should Know
eShipGlobal is an intuitive and easy to use web-based tool, in the Prime Marketplace. It incorporates our contract pricing and allows savings to be realized via rate and delivery comparison shopping.
All necessary shipping documents are printed right from the tool. Your eShipGlobal account includes payment information via your University issued credit card. Charges are audited to ensure they are compliant with the service received, and reporting is available in the tool for your shipment history. Once your account is established, please discard your pre-printed airway bills and discontinue use of your existing individual FedEx and UPS accounts.
Prepare for eShipGlobal
To prepare your departmental shippers for using the eShipGlobal shipping tool:
- Ensure all shippers have a University NetID. A NetID can be requested through your departmental SCAD.
- All shippers must have a University issued credit card. This is the only method of payment that can be used in the new eShip tool. Departmental Credit Cards can be requested through the Financial Service Center.
- If your departmental shipper has a "DCU Account," additional steps need to be taken to request the Prime Shopper function, and access to Concur. Contact the Financial Service Center, (609) 258-3080 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before using the shipping tool, shippers should complete these one-time setups:
- Setup their eShip profile, including their University Credit Card information.
- Complete their Concur profile, and attend Concur training to learn how to reconcile expenses in Concur.
eShipGlobal is available as a punchout item in the Prime Marketplace. To access the Prime Marketplace, visit the Prime Portal http://prime.princeton.edu, and click on the "Marketplace Shopper" button. Once inside the Marketplace, click the eShipGlobal punchout button.
