Creating Shipping Description Mapping Rule

About the Order Shipping Description Mapping Rule

An Order Shipping Description Mapping Rule is a requirement that maps the shipping descriptions in your customer's eCommerce system to the shipping codes available at your warehouse. For example, orders that show "Free Shipping" can be mapped to "USPS - Priority Mail" at your warehouse, so when the order arrives you know how to ship the package.

An Order Shipping Description Mapping Rule will apply a specific warehouse management system carrier code to an order based on the mapping configured with this rule. 

Note: This rule must be created to automate fulfillment
