Shipping methods are customizable shipping options that will be available to your customers at checkout. If you are selling on channels such as Amazon and Walmart, you can create shipping methods to map to those channels under Shipping Mappings.
To create shipping methods, click Settings on the Dashboard, then click Shipping Methods.
Your default shipping zone is UPS Ground.
You have the ability to sort by ID, name, position, methods, and date modified by clicking the up and down arrows by the column names.
You can also search for individual shipping methods using the search bar above left or filter by date range or various criteria using the Filter button. You can create custom filter criteria by selecting Create New Filter and building queries either manually or with the build feature.
You can delete shipping methods individually by clicking the Delete button or multiple at a time by clicking the boxes in the leftmost column and then clicking With Selected. Click the topmost box to select all methods on screen.
