Magento shipping options help store owners handle delivery requirements by determining the cost and method of shipping products to customers. First and foremost, we need to find out more about the Magento fulfillment options. Here are some of the shipping choices available in Magento.
Three basic shipping methods in Magento
Below are 3 popular Magento 2 shipping methods that help you calculate the tax on products as well as shipping costs from your store.
This method allows you to offer free shipping to your customers if they meet specific requirements, such as a minimum order value or if they buy a certain number of items.
With this method, you can set a fixed shipping rate for all orders, regardless of weight or destination. You can also set different rates for different shipping methods in Magento 2, such as ground or express.
Table rates allow you to set shipping rates based on a combination of factors, such as the order weight, destination, and shipping method. You can create several shipping tables and configure them to meet specific business needs.
Four shipping carrier options
In addition to the 3 shipping methods mentioned, there are 4 common carriers: FedEx, UPS, USPS, and DHL.
