How To

Shipping Carrier Options

Before determining the shipping rate that an item will cost to send it to your buyer, you must first decide what methods of shipping you will provide for a completed order. This is configured in ChannelAdvisor as a Shipping Carrier and Class combination.

Shipping carriers are companies such as FedEx, UPS, or a countries' national postal carrier – such as the United States Postal Service (USPS). A shipping class is the method of shipment that the specific company may offer for delivery – for example Overnight, Ground, or Next Day Air.
