Set up Shipping Settings and Regions

Shipping templates let you create your shipping settings across several products at once (default service levels, shipping regions, transit times, and shipping rates). You can create up to 20 shipping templates for specific groups of SKUs.

Before you create a template, verify that your default shipping address is accurate and make sure you understand the requirements.

For shipping settings to Ritou areas (remote islands and mountains), refer to this list.
