Introduction

An important part of E-Commerce is to manage the delivery of purchased goods to customers. It's a good idea to put some thought into the methods you'll use and the destinations you'll deliver to.

Remember: You need to set up delivery options before your customers will be able to checkout!

Delivery Zones

Delivery zones categorise the countries in which you'll deliver to. For example: Zone 1 could be the UK and Zone 2 could be the rest of Europe.
