Magento offers you the ability to configure your shipping settings from the backend of your website, which will mean you can provide customers with a range of methods and costs during checkout. It is possible to link in major couriers meaning you can print the labels straight away and send it off, Magento has links with UPS, FedEx and DHL.
To edit your shipping settings click on ‘System’ which can be found on the navigation bar of the backend of your site, then click on ‘Configuration’. Scroll down on this page until you see ‘Shipping Settings’ on the left hand side menu bar and click this. From here you can fill in the origin of the shipping. When this is done, scroll down the page again until this time you find ‘Shipping Methods’, it is here that you can fill in all the methods and prices to do with your stores shipping. For example, the price, whether there is any free shipping and also the countries that your store can ship too, this is important from customers overseas wishing to buy anything.
