The ability oto sell things online through sites like and eBay has also created a demand for people to ship products as well as receive them. Rather than take your package to a drop-off point, UPS gives you the ability to schedule a pickup from your home.

Go to the UPS website at

If you don't already have a UPS account, open one.

Under the "Shipping" tab, click on "Create a Shipment".

At the bottom of the screen, click on the box next to "Schedule a Pickup."

Click "Next", and fill out the pickup information on the next page.

Click "Next" again, and review the shipping order. If everything is correct, click "Ship now".
