Guidelines

Direct to consumer shipping

Remember to only use direct-to-consumer shipping rates. Any other types such as ship-to-store shipping rates are not permitted. Without the usage of the attribute 'country', the shipping information will be referred to the product’s target country. When omitting the attributes ‘postal code’, 'location id' or 'location group name' the 'shipping' attribute will refer to the whole country.
