Studies show that stores offering customers a choice of several shipping methods have higher conversion rates than those that use a single method for all shipments. In this section, you will learn how to set up a variety of shipping methods and carriers, and print shipping labels.

Shipping Settings

The Shipping Settings establish the point of origin for all shipments made from your store or warehouse, and your preference for managing orders shipped to multiple addresses.

Basic Shipping Methods

Magento supports a wide range of built-in shipping methods, including Flat Rate, Free Shipping, Table Rates, and real-time online rates.


If you have a commercial account with a supported carrier, you can offer your customers the convenience of real-time shipping rates, package tracking, and labels.

Shipping Labels

You can easily create shipping labels for new and existing orders from the Admin of your store. Labels can be produced when a shipment is created, or later. Shipping labels are stored in PDF format and downloaded to your computer.
