International Shipping

International item/shipment data can be pre-filled for a customer at checkout, if the information is defined for the products in the order. Pre-filled data requires configuration in Magento Attribute Mapping and defining the shipping settings for each Magento product.

International item/shipment settings are defined for a product in the Shipping tab in Product Settings.

International settings include:

  • Country of Origin - The country from which the item will be shipped.

  • HS Code - The Harmonized System is an international classification of products. It allows participating countries to classify traded goods on a common basis for customs purposes. At the international level, the Harmonized System (HS) for classifying goods is a six-digit code system.
