  1. FED EX rates are using the Discount rates provided by Fed instead of the Published rates show on the FED EX web site. Once we have integrated withour Magento Web site I do not see and selection that asks if we want to use Discount rates or published rates?
    Is by design, if so then i would have to request a standard type of account from FED EX so that it would use the published rates? Unless you have some other type of solution?
