Attribute Mapping

Due to the impending shutdown of Temando, the provider of the technology behind Magento Shipping, it is no longer possible to create a new Magento Shipping account. Support for current Magento Shipping deployments for all existing customers will continue. For detailed status information and recommendations for new shipping implementations in Magento, see our product information page.

Magento Shipping product attributes are available for mapping in Magento Admin. When associated to a Magento product attribute, the attribute value is available to pre-fill values in the fulfillment processes.

Attribute mapping allows you to map Magento Shipping attributes to Magento product attributes defined in your Magento catalog. Mapping data is used to auto-assign shipping information/values when fulfilling orders, resulting in a more efficient and less frustrating experience for customers.

You can also define custom Magento Shipping attributes, allowing for greater flexibility when defining Experiences to automatically present shipping methods in the checkout.
