Checkout: Manage Shipping Methods
The Manage Shipping Methods screen can be seen when you navigate the Checkout > Shipping Methods from your Checkout menu item in the admin panel. On this screen, you can view the general details about all of your shipping methods and you can manually edit them, if needed. This is also where you will add new shipping methods to be used in your shop. Below is a screenshot of the screen with relevant points numbered and explained. Your Shipping Methods page might be empty, requiring you to add a new one and configure it before using a shipping method.
1. Add New Shipping Methods
Clicking this button will take you to ‘Save a Shipping Method’ where you can create a new shipping method. New shipping methods added will show up on this ‘Manage Shipping Methods’ screen after they are added.
2. Bulk Actions
These bulk actions allow you to select multiple shipping method records from the table using the checkboxes and then apply a bulk action on the selected records.
The currently available Bulk Actions are (as seen in the image) Activate, Deactivate and Delete Selected.
3. Search Shipping Methods
Quickly search the database for Shipping Methods by typing a word or phrase and then clicking the ‘Search Methods’ button.
4. Shipping Methods Row Actions
When you hover a shipping method row, action links will appear below it which are applicable to that row. The links include ‘Edit’ which allows you to edit the shipping method, and ‘Delete’ which will remove the shipping method permanently.
