Shipping Methods

Default behavior

Whiplash attempts to use the selection made in your shopping cart to choose a shipping method for an order. e.g. An order is received with UPS Ground chosen by the customer, Whiplash will receive it and ship it as such.

A couple exceptions to this general rule:

Shipping method preferences

Whiplash defaults to shipping via Whiplash Cheapest Rate when it can't match a chosen shipping method to an actual service. To change your default go to Account Preferences -> Ship Methods and map Default to a particular method.

There, you can also map any shipping method from your shopping cart to a method in Whiplash. For example, when your customers select "Free Shipping" it could map to Whiplash Cheapest Rate, but when they select "$25 Flat Rate Overnight" it could map to FedEx Overnight.

What is Whiplash Cheapest rate anyway?

Whiplash’s cheapest rate algorithms ensure the most cost-friendly shipping rate for your orders - in plain English, the least expensive postage option. It is important to note that least expensive option usually means an economy service. These services (especially outside of the US) are generally slower and have limited/no tracking visibility or delivery confirmation.
