Shipping rates are setup using three components: Types, Zones and Strategies. In this article we will walk you through how to setup your Shipping Zones. Please note: If using Ship Compliant, compliance integration settings must be done prior to setting up shipping options or an error page will be returned.
Shipping Types Overview
Shipping Types are shipping methods such as UPS Ground, UPS 2-Day, FedEx Overnight, GSO Ground etc. Shipping types are the shipping options displayed to the consumer when placing an order.
Shipping Type Setup
