This guide ensures that Avasam can fulfil and invoice your 3DCart orders with the correct shipping services
Shipping mapping makes sure that Avasam knows which shipping service and provider to use when sending an order.
In this process, the shipping service chosen by the customer when ordering online is mapped to a shipping service provided by the relevant supplier. The seller may offer free shipping, but the supplier will often charge for shipping resulting in the seller bundling the cost into the stock price.
If the shipping service isn't mapped, Avasam can't raise the correct invoice. as it doesn't know what to charge. This means that your order won't be shipped
Because of this, you need the shipping service selected by the customer to be transferred to Avasam when the order is downloaded, through shipping mapping.
