Why do I need to open an account?

If you ship regularly, open a FedEx account online and take advantage of FedEx Ship Manager at and make managing your shipping as fast and easy as possible. Also, you will save up to 16% on eligible FedEx Express® U.S. and international services and up to 8% on eligible FedEx Ground® and FedEx Home Delivery® services.


If you ship rarely, you are not required to have a FedEx account number to create shipping labels online. However, please note that you will have to enter and authorize your credit card number for every shipment.

Is there a fee for opening a FedEx account?

There is no fee to open a FedEx account number.

We do ask that you submit a credit card number, so your billing information is tied to your FedEx account. In order to verify the billing information for each FedEx account opened, a temporary $10 hold is placed on your credit card account. The $10 hold will be removed within seven business days.
