When you set up your Commerce web site, you can set preferences to determine how shipping works on your site and which shipping methods are available to shoppers.

On the Shopping subtab of the Web Site Setup page, you can:

  • require shoppers to enter shipping information before checking out

  • require shoppers to enter shipping address before billing address

  • select a default shipping method for a web site

  • enable shipping to all countries or limit shipping to specific countries

  • choose a country to display by default in the Country field on the Shipping page in Web Store checkout.

For more information, read the following topics:

For the complete listing of website shipping preferences, read the help topic Shipping Page.

Before you can select a default shipping method for your site, you must register your shipping accounts, set shipping preferences, and set up shipping items in NetSuite. For more information, read the topics listed below:

Selecting a default shipping method for your site combined with any previous customer shipping preference determines what the shopper sees as the preferred carrier and available shipping options when checking out. In Checkout, the Shipping Method page displays a list of shipping items that are appropriate for the shipping address. If you select a Default Web Site Shipping Method, then a shipping method is preselected in Checkout based on information about the customer and your shipping preferences.


If you use multiple locations, to calculate shipping correctly, the Location field must be displayed on the sales order form you use for your web site. For more information about displaying fields on transaction forms, see the help topic Configuring Fields or Screens.

With the SuiteCommerce Shipping Bar extension, you can inform shoppers of free or special rate shipping with dynamic messages that change to indicate how much more shoppers must spend to qualify for shipping. For more information on setting up the shipping bar feature in your website, read Shipping Bar.
