Dropshipper Editor

Dropshippers are used to allow the store to calculate shipping from more than one location.  They can be assigned to individual products that ship from a different zip code than the one specified in the store's System Settings.  The Dropshipper Editor is used to create and edit dropshippers.

key concept
By default, all shipped products in the store will have the shipping calculations done based on the zip code specified in the System Settings page.  Overriding that setting to calculate from a different location is done using dropshippers.

Once the dropshipper has been created, it can be assigned to products using the Location this Product Ships From section of the Product Editor.

To edit an existing dropshipper:

  4. Make the desired changes to the dropshipper.
