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.
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.
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.
