If you have a commercial account with a supported carrier, you can offer your customers the
convenience of choosing that carrier during checkout. The rates are automatically downloaded,
so you do not need to look up the information.
Before you can offer your customers a selection of shipping carriers, you must first complete the
shipping settings to establish the point of origin for your store. Then, complete the
configuration for each carrier service that you want to offer. The configuration options vary for
each carrier. However, all require that you first open a shipping account with the carrier, and
enter your account number or user ID, and the gateway URL to their system into the
configuration of your store. See Magento Connect for additional shipping services for your
Magento Community Edition installation.
