In Detail

There is nothing worse for a customer than paying for an item online and never receiving it.

Being able to customise all of Magento’s shipping settings is what makes the difference between a store that can take orders and ship them and a store that delivers on all levels.


Filled with practical, step-by-step instructions and clear explanations for the most important and useful tasks. Instant Magento Shipping How-to is a step-by-step guide to learn and understand the different shipping configurations and settings of Magento.
