Setting Up Shipping Methods
You will need to set up shipping methods to be able to ship products. You can create a shipping method by going to: Config > Order Settings > Shipping Methods
There are various shipping methods that are available and can be edited on this page. To create a new shipping method, make a selection from the drop down menu on the left and click on the "Add" icon.
You can also choose to charge an additional handling fee either per item or per order.
The "charge handling on non-shipping items" would be used for electronic documents.
