Quickly customize shipping settings with the shipping setup tool

Monday, March 01, 2010

Ed Note: This is the first in a series of features and posts from the Checkout team that will make integrating with Checkout, and then running your business on it, even easier.

The shipping setup tool, now available for all Checkout merchants, makes setting up accurate shipping options a snap. In just a few clicks, you can configure and customize the shipping settings that you passed in the Checkout API. The tool will walk you through the various options and steps required to configure the shipping options you make available to your buyers, and then allow you to modify these settings.

You can find the shipping setup tool in the Settings tab of your Checkout Merchant Center.

To learn even more about how to use this feature, check out the brief video tutorial:

Note that if you continue to pass shipping information via the API, it will override any information you have set up here. Try it out, and let us know what you think!
