Manage shipping methods
Admin > Orders > Shipping methods takes you to the page where you can manage your shipping methods.
By using the Add button, you can add a new shipping method. There you will get the following options:
- Select a carrier
- Select/add zone
- Specify name
- Default display
- Display by language
- Shipping method active
- Set shipping costs
- Define shipping options
Select a carrier
Here you can select the carrier for the selected shipping method, or create a custom method by selecting Afosto as carrier.
Select the shipping zone for the new shipping method or create a new zone.
A shipping zone is a country, group of countries or a part of a country (e.g. the Wadden Islands) for which this shipping method must be available.
Based on the settings, give the shipping method a good name so that it is clear what the settings for this method are. You can expand this (per language) with the messaging options below.
- Sameday Delivery
- Pickup Point DPD
- PostNL Pickup Point
- PostNL Signature for Receipt
- PostNL Signature for Receipt + ID Check
Here you can enter the standard text that will be shown with the shipping method. This is also the fallback text if no text has been entered for a particular language. On the image below, you can see which field ends up where.
Display by language
In addition to the standard messaging, you can adjust the name, description and instructions for the customer per language. Which language is shown to the customer depends on the browser language of the visitor.
Shipping method active
This setting determines whether the shipping method is active or not.
Set shipping costs
This is where you set the standard shipping costs for the method, which can be either a fixed amount or a percentage.
Set shipping options
Based on the options you select here, we will return a subset of the methods that meet the criteria you set here from the shipping link.
