Here is where you can specify the shipping method you want to employ on
your store for domestic and international customers.
Use alternate shipping rates
If you don't want to give your customers a choice of shipping methods on
checkout, select "Don't use alternative rates". Selecting "Show alternate
carriers in menu" will give the customer the choice of selecting the shipping
carrier from the ones you select and then choosing the method they want the
purchase to be shipped by. Choosing "Show all shipping carriers together" will
present rates for all the shipping methods you select on the same screen.
Use the arrow to set the order of the shipping methods presented to your
customers. Select which methods you want to support by checking the box
next to each carrier, the first is for domestic shipping, the second for
international. Use the text field to label each of the methods.
Selecting Pack products together will add all the product weights together and
take the shipping cost on this total. Pack products separately will take the
shipping cost for each item and then add these together.
If you are using USPS shipping on your store then after registering for a user
name with USPS you would enter it here.
This is only required if you are using Canada Post as the shipping method
SmartPost Hub ID
This is only required if you are using FedEx SmartPost.
This is the zip (postal) code of where you are shipping from. Only one zip
code can be used in the process of calculating shipping costs.
Shipping weights / Dimensions
This is where you can choose between the metric and imperial systems. Do
note that some shipping carriers may restrict the available shipping units and
some may vary by country of origin. If you specify units for dimensions you
will have to enter dimensions for all products. But most of the time it will make
no difference to shipping.
The value specified here will be added to the order total to cover handling
