Your store's shipping strategy will largely depend on the location of the warehouse from which the goods ordered from your store will be shipped out to the buyers. In real life, the location of such a warehouse may not be the same as the company address you have specified in your store profile, and if you want shipping cost estimation at your X-Cart store to be more or less accurate, you will need a way to specify the actual location from which your customers' orders will be shipped.
X-Cart makes it possible for you to specify such a location (i.e. the origin address for your store's shipments) via the Ship-From Address page in your X-Cart store's Admin area. To access this page:
Go to Store setup > Shipping.
Select the Ship-From Address tab.
On the Ship-From Address page, you will find the setting "Use your company address as your ship-from address."
By default, this setting is enabled, so X-Cart treats the company address in your store profile as your ship-from address.
If you need to specify a different address as an origin for your shipments, readjust this setting to "OFF". When you do this, more settings appear on the page allowing you to enter the origin address you require.
Complete the address fields and click Submit at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
The address will be saved.
