Most businesses have unique shipping needs that are based on a variety of factors and limitations. Once the Merchant has decided which methods (and/or carriers) to offer, the only thing shoppers need to do is choose a method when they place their orders.
A mapping must be created from each available shipping description offered in the eCommerce system to the unique shipping code used by the fulfillment center.
To set up shipping methods in BigCommerce:
- From within BigCommerce, click Setup & Tools > Shipping.
- Click Edit for a chosen Zone.
- Click Edit next to the shipping charges types that have been set up, e.g., Fedex or UPS.
- Specify the information and the applicable service types, e.g., Standard Overnight, First Overnight, etc.
