Ship Zones / Ship Tables
Ship zones allow you to define shipping rates for specific areas (Countries, states...etc) using ship tables.
Adding a Zone: Click "Add New Shipping Zone" on the "Ship Zones" tab. Enter the name and select the countries, states, etc, you wish to add to this zone.
Once you've created ship zones, you can assign a shipping table to an area and define your rates. You can set the range to be based on weight or dollar amount by selecting it in the "Shipping Table Range" dropdown in the main shipping settings. (See "Shipping Settings" section above)

Once installed, Shipping Modules will be available under the "Installed Modules" tab. See "Installed Modules" section below for more information.
If you have enabled real-time shipping, you will need to install a shipping module. The "Installed Modules" tab will show any modules you have already installed. Some modules (Such as the Fedex module) will require you to create an account on the shipper's website and then enter the account number you are assigned in the module's settings, in your SunShop administration area.
Changing Module Settings: Click on the wrench icon on the line of the module you wish to edit.
Note: Status should read "On" when shipping module is enabled.
