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.

On the shipping methods page, you will see the following three sections: 

Current Shipping Methods

In this first section, you can view and edit the shipping methods that have already been created. 

Handling Settings

In this section, you can set how the handling charges will be calculated and applied to your orders. 

Minimum Order Surcharge

This section allows you to set an amount as the lowest amount that a customer must spend before placing an order. It also lets you set the surcharge amount and to which groups these restrictions apply.
