Gathering Shipping Methods

Once you've decided which methods (and/or carriers) to offer, the only thing your shoppers need to do is choose a method when they place their orders. As part of the third-party fulfillment setup process a mapping must be created from each available shipping method option to a unique shipping code used by your fulfillment provider.
