Advanced Shipping

The product catalog can be configured to send buyers to a new screen where shipping options are listed in another product catalog for buys to select. This method is an advanced operation and is described here.


Free Shipping as a Promotion

Free shipping is also an option in promotions. When a promotion establishes free shipping the second "shipping options" product catalog will still be used, but if it has any shipping calculations these may be affected.
