In Detail

There is nothing worse for a customer than paying for an item online and never receiving it. As store owners, it is your responsibility to make sure each order is processed correctly, and more importantly—shipped. Configured correctly, Magento’s shipping settings will not only make your lives as vendors much easier, but will also, through good service, keep customers coming back for more.

Instant Magento Shipping How-to is a comprehensive guide on how to set up your Magento Shipping configuration. This book will also broaden your knowledge of the various systems within Magento that impact upon the shipping settings.

Instant Magento Shipping How-to will walk you through the steps required to conduct the initial configuration to allow shipping for your products, taking into account Tax settings and the different product types. Magento’s administration panel is a bit of a daunting system. 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.
