What Is a Shipping Method?


If you wish to sell physical products you will need to include various shipping methods and rate. Shipping methods allow you to easily specify a flat fee for shipping.



Managing Shipping Methods


In the MemberMouse menu go to Product Settings and then click on the Shipping Methods tab.


The screenshot below is an example of what the shipping methods will look like. Here you will be able to quickly see the names of the different shipping methods you have created, and each of their flat fees.  The shipping methods tab is where you will create and delete shipping methods as well as edit existing ones. Consult the Shipping Options table below to learn more.
