Carrier Costs

May 18, 2020 in Order Management

Purpose

Carrier Costs are used to calculate delivery charges in Sales Order Entry when the Delivery Calculator option is switched on.

Costs can be defined either by Area or Postcode, where an Area covers multiple postcodes and is therefore easier to maintain than a carrier cost for each Postcode.  Optionally you can update Carrier Costs using the Carrier Cost Upload function.
